1. 3 INGREDIENT NUTELLA BROWNIES
30 minutes from start to finish, and featuring our favourite chocolate hazelnut spread in delicious and decadent brownie form? That’s what we’re talking about, Kirbie Cravings thanks a lot!
1 1/4 cup Nutella
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 23 cm x 23cm metal baking pan. Add all ingredients into a large bowl and mix until batter is smooth. Pour into baking pan and smooth top with spatula.
Bake for about 15 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Be careful not to bake too long otherwise brownies will dry out. Let brownies cool and set before cutting and serving.

2. SPICY SIRACHA POPCORN
Looking for more ways to enjoy your favourite hot sauce and need snacks immediately? Put a little spice into your movie watching experience with this Siracha Popcorn recipe, courtesy of wayfair.com.
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
2-3 tablespoons butter
1-2 teaspoons sriracha
1-2 teaspoons salt, to taste
Coat the bottom of a large pot with canola oil, pour in the popcorn kernels, and cover. Place over medium high-heat. When you hear the first kernels pop, begin to shake until all the corn is popped. When you no longer hear popping, remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl.
While waiting for the popcorn to pop, melt the butter and stir in the Siracha. Drizzle over the popcorn and toss, seasoning with salt. Enjoy while toasty!

4. 2 STEP GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH
We found this mouth watering, delicious offering submitted by Emily McKenna on real simple. This is a fast snack that every student should know about, and is so simple, it’s brilliant.
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 slices white sandwich bread
2 slices Cheddar
1/8 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 small avocado, thinly sliced
Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Form a sandwich with the bread, cheese, onion, and avocado.
Cook the sandwich, covered, until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Done. We’re about to make one of these tasty morsels right now!
5. SIMPLE PIZZA
Ok, this may be slightly advanced if you have absolutely no experience cooking, but pizzas are one of the easiest tasty snacks you can make. The all time student favourite, this is perfect for study sessions or if you’re having pizza nights with your mates in the cluster rooms, you can all work together and have a pizza cook off. As we said, pizza is one of the easiest things you can make, especially if you buy a pre made base.
Pizza sauce/tomato paste
Whatever toppings you wish (sometimes less is more, but of course, more is more too)
Set the oven to 220C
Spoon a few tablespoons of pizza sauce and spread it over the base
Grab a handful of mozzarella cheese and sprinkle it all over
Add your toppings (3-4 is probably ideal)
Place the pizza on a baking tray and cook for 15 minutes
EXTRA TIP: If you want extra crispy edges, put olive oil on them before placing the pizza in the oven.
