1. 5-Minute Toast Pizza

Pizza is a staple food for hungry stoners. And while you can easily order it, it’s just as easy to make at home. With that said, you might not want to wait for an oven-cooked pizza while you’re high – let alone risk leaving the oven on. That’s why this 5-minute toast pizza is one of the best recipes for when the munchies hit.


  • 2 bread slices
  • Grated cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Tomato sauce
  • Toppings (chopped onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc.)

Step 1: Start by lightly toasting 2 pieces of bread until they’re slightly brown. Lay them on a plate and drizzle them with olive oil before coating them in tomato sauce. Make sure you use enough tomato sauce to cover each slice.

Step 2: Next, grate a block of cheese over the top of your bread. You can use mozzarella or another type of easy-to-melt cheese. You can also use as much as you want to make your pizza as cheesy as you like it.

Step 3: Spice up your pizza by adding some toppings. You might want to use chopped onions, chopped peppers, mushrooms, and even pepperoni slices. Get as creative as you like until you’re happy with your pizza toppings.

Step 4: Cooking your toast pizza is easy. Simply place your plate in the oven for around 2-5 minutes. You can also place it on the grill for around 5 minutes. Once the cheese has melted and your toppings and sauce are hot, your pizza is ready to eat.

2. Quick And Easy Popcorn

If you’re high, watching movies, and need a snack that’s filling yet super quick to make, popcorn is a great option. It’s super easy to make and you can also add whatever kind of toppings you like. Plus, if you buy a bag of popcorn kernels, you can make a big bowl of popcorn whenever you need it. Here’s how.


  • ½ cup of popcorn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon of salt or sugar
  • Savory or sweet flavorings

Step 1: Fill a large, microwaveable bowl with around ½ a cup of popcorn kernels. You can use more if you want, but keep in mind that your kernels will pop and fill the bowl – so don’t use too much.

Step 2: Add either half a teaspoon of salt or half a teaspoon of sugar to your popcorn, depending on whether you want savory or sweet popcorn. You can also add butter and other flavorings if you like.

Step 3: Once you’re happy with your flavorings, cover your microwavable bowl with a large dish or plate. Place it in the microwave and cook it on high heat for around 3-5 minutes. Once nearly all the kernels have popped, remove the bowl and take away the plate.

Step 4: Before digging into your popcorn, you might want to spice it up with some seasonings. For instance, cheese and garlic are great for savory popcorn. If you’re having sugary popcorn, you might want to add some cinnamon and honey. Try something new each time for a sensational stoned snack.

3. Super Fast Nachos

Nachos are another top snack that can always satisfy your hunger when you’re stoned. Not only are they tasty and filling, but they’re very easy to make.

  • A pack of tortilla chips
  • Salsa

  • Chili powder
  • Dips and toppings of your choice

Step 1: Add some tortilla chips to a baking tray. You can use as much or as little as you want, depending on how hungry you are.

Step 2: Cover your chips in salsa and add some grated cheese to the top. Add enough to cover your chips – you’ll be heating and melting the cheese later.

Step 3: You might also want to add some toppings to your nachos. A sprinkle of chili powder will add a spicy kick to your nachos. You might also want to add a little pepper. Chopped onions and peppers also go great with nachos.

Step 4: Once you’re happy with your nachos, place your tray in the oven for around 3 minutes. This is just enough time to melt your cheese and leave your nachos hot and tasty. You can then empty them onto a plate, grab your favorite dips, and enjoy your nachos.

Choc Chip Cookies for Munchies

4. Choc-Chip Cookies

When you’re hit by the munchies and want something sweet, nothing satisfies your hunger quite like choc-chip cookies. Chocolate chip cookies can be surprisingly quick and easy to make, although you might want to bake them before you get high. You can then enjoy the chewy, chocolatey goodness after your first toke. Here’s how to make them in 10 minutes.


  • 1 cup of butter
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 ¾ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • A pinch of salt

Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and covering a baking tray with parchment paper – you’ll need this to cook your cookies later.

Step 2: Grab a blender (or use an electric whisk and mixing bowl) and add your butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Blend these ingredients thoroughly before adding a large egg and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Blend again until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Step 3: Add your flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt to the mixture and continue to blend. Once you’ve blended all of these ingredients, you should be left with soft cookie dough. Add your chocolate chips and knead them into the dough.

Step 4: It’s now time to transfer your dough to your baking tray. Use a large spoon to take even scoops and spread them throughout your tray. Leave at least 2 inches between each scoop. Once you’ve emptied your mixture, place the tray in the oven.

Step 5: Bake your cookies in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. You might want to leave them for a few extra minutes if you prefer your cookies to be crunchy. Once you’re ready, take your tray out of the oven and leave it on the side to cool. You can then enjoy these delicious treats when you get the munchies.

5. Honey Garlic Noodles

Noodles are a top choice for stoners around the world. They’re quick and easy to make, incredibly filling, and delicious. And while you can simply use whatever sauce or seasoning packet comes with your instant noodles, you might want to spice them up with a few alternative ingredients. Here’s a quick and easy honey garlic noodles recipe.

  • 1 teaspoon of chopped or minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • ⅓ cup of soy sauce
  • Crushed chili flakes

Step 2: Add a packet of rice noodles or egg noodles to your saucepan. Alternatively, you can boil a pack of instant noodles and add them to your saucepan. Use a spoon or chopsticks to break the noodles apart and coat them in the sauce.

Step 3: Allow around 5 to 10 minutes for your noodles to cook in the sauce. Once they’re ready, pour them into a plate or bowl and add a fork or chopsticks.

Step 4: You might want to add some tasty toppings to your noodles. Ready-cooked chicken or leftovers can work well. You could also fry an egg and some veggies using your hot saucepan.
