Yummy Treats Every Foodie Will Drool Over


When it comes to food, there's always something new and exciting to try. It could be the best plant-based sunflower cheese spread or the latest tasty snack. If you enjoy treats and are looking for some inspiring suggestions, read on. In this article, we've compiled a list of some of the most delicious and drool-worthy snacks that'll tantalize your taste buds.

CNY Goodies

 The Chinese New Year is a great time to celebrate and eat with friends and family. There's Ang Ku Kueh which are sweet rice flour cakes, and they come in various colors and fillings. These traditionally feature red bean paste or mung bean paste. You'll often find them wrapped in banana leaves too. Pineapple Tarts have a flaky crust with a sweet pineapple jam filling. Bak Kwa involves thin slices of pork jerky marinated in a sweet and savory sauce.

 You may also wish to check out Mung Bean Cake and Kueh Lapis. If you research CNY goodies online you can access free delivery deals or collection arrangements, and same-day deliveries (subject to terms and conditions). If you're looking to buy something as a gift you could choose a pineapple tart and Kueh Lapis bundle pack.

Something With Nutella

 Nutella is a chocolate and hazelnut spread that's been enjoyed for literally decades. It’s loved by many people around the world as a delicious alternative to traditional chocolate spreads. When it comes to snacks featuring Nutella, there are endless possibilities. You can use it as an ingredient in desserts (such as cupcakes with Nutella frosting) or a Nutella-stuffed French toast breakfast sandwich.

 You could also go for something slightly healthier like oatmeal bars with Nutella swirls or homemade granola with chunks of Nutella mixed in. Alternatively, keep things simple and just enjoy some fresh fruit slices dipped into creamy Nutella dip. No matter what your preference is, you can easily whip up a tasty snack featuring this delicious spread.

Something with Cheese

 Many foodies love cheese, and it makes a great topping for just about anything. There are plenty of savory snacks out there to indulge in. You can go for something like a classic grilled cheese sandwich made with your favorite type of cheese. Or you could try a baked Brie topped with honey and nuts or some cheesy garlic bread slices. If you’re feeling creative (and more hungry), you could even make a delicious homemade macaroni and cheese dish. From simple recipes to more elaborate creations, there are plenty of options featuring cheese.

Some other snack ideas include:

     ~ Cheese balls rolled in herbs

     ~ Crispy cheese straws

     ~ Cheese and bacon puff pastry twists

     ~ Mini quesadillas

     ~ Prosciutto and brie crostini

Something Sweet

 For those with a sweet tooth, chocolate mousses can be an indulgent delight. They're creamy and rich, as well as providing a burst of flavor. A great way to make them extra special is by adding fresh fruit toppings such as blueberries or raspberries. Another decadent treat is crème brûlée - a deliciously creamy custard topped with crunchy caramelized sugar. Topped off with a dollop of cream or ice cream, it’s sure to tantalize the taste buds.

 The classic cupcake can never go wrong and you can choose from different flavors like vanilla or lemon (and top it off with delicious buttercream frosting). These cupcakes can be decorated to appeal to the eye. You could add a few sprinkles, fresh fruit, or nuts for an extra inclusion of texture and color. Scones are also a delicious treat, paired with clotted cream and jam for a taste sensation. Finally, no sweet treat list would be complete without ice cream sundaes. Layer up ice cream flavors with caramel or chocolate sauce, topped off with whipped cream, chopped nuts, and sprinkles.

Something Healthy

 They say that if it tastes nice it must be fattening, but that's not always true. If you're looking for something sweet but still healthy, try frozen banana ice cream. All you need is a couple of ripe bananas and a food processor or blender. Peel and chop the bananas, then freeze them on a tray or plate. Once they're frozen, put them in the blender with a splash of milk (almond or cashew work best) until smooth and creamy. For an extra kick, add your favorite toppings like nuts, dried fruit, coconut flakes, or cinnamon.

 You can also make crispy baked apples as another healthy option. Core two apples and slice them into thin slices before laying them flat onto a baking dish (lined with parchment paper). Drizzle honey over them and sprinkle them with cinnamon before baking. These make for the perfect snack when you're craving something sweet but don't want to pile on the pounds.

Try Some Salad Options

 Salads make a great snack or side dish. You can easily take them along to picnics, BBQs, and other outdoor events. Think beyond the typical iceberg lettuce, carrots, and tomatoes. If you’re feeling creative, add some fresh fruit to your salad - such as strawberries or blackberries. You can also go for different types of greens like spinach, kale, and arugula. Add a sprinkle of feta cheese and some crunchy nuts like almonds or walnuts. Drizzle it all with a light olive oil vinaigrette dressing and you have a delicious salad that every foodie will love.

 For those craving something more savory yet still healthy, why not make a warm quinoa salad? Start by cooking the quinoa according to the package instructions. Add roasted squash diced into cubes or slices of bell peppers for color and crunch. For flavor, you can add diced red onion and some fresh herbs like basil or oregano. Drizzle it all with a light olive oil-based dressing to finish off the salad.

 You may also wish to learn about s'mores dips, berry trifles, chocolate-dipped bacon, and ice cream cone cupcakes. If you research well and follow the instructions you'll be delighted with the results. Both you and your family or friends will enjoy these snacks and be keen to eat more in the future.
