You’re going to have indigestion tonight.

Seriously, at a time when your stomach should be settling from dinner, you’ll likely be settling down to some greasy rings, spicy wings and way too much alcohol for your own good — or at least for a good night’s sleep.

So we’re here to help with your late-night April Madness munchies. Bonnie S. Benwick and I have cobbled together some easy and (hopefully) easy-on-the-stomach treats for tonight’s game. Check ‘em out after the jump.


Michel Richard's cheese puffs. (Len Spoden for The Washington Post)

Almond Dip. No game is complete without some dip, and this Turkish spread lightens up the usual calorie bombs.

Chocolate Grapes . This is another Richard recipe, which makes us wonder whether the chef doesn’t have a small obsession with snacking.

Sweet and Salty Popcorn. Todd Gray’s recipe is so simple your kids could prepare it tonight.

Eggplant Chips. For picky eaters, this recipe would give eggplant a good name.


Like Rice Krispies Treats, only not as sticky and with chocolate. (Julia Ewan/The Washington Post)

Grits-Stuffed Collard Rolls . Remember to use low-fat milk and low-fat cheddar cheese to reduce your late-night calorie intake.

Honeyed Pecans With Sesame Seeds. Don’t be afraid of this quick-fry recipe. You’ll love the results.

Parmesan Yogurt Dip With Carrots. Count this among the best ways to get your kids to eat carrots.

Roasted Tomato Bruschetta. This recipe should make even out-of-season hothouse tomatoes taste good.

While we’re on the subject of Madness, don’t forget that Beer Madness continues until April 11. You can read about earlier rounds here.
