Happy April 20!

No matter what you are up to on this unofficial holiday, there's a chance you might get the munchies, and it's very important that you are prepared when cravings hit.

From sweet to savory and everything in between, here are some shamelessly loaded snacks and festive cocktails that are sure to satisfy you:

1. Lavender Lime Ricky

Depending on your simple syrup, you might get a pink or purple cocktail, but don't let the color fool you. This drink is certainly herbaceous and refreshing, but it packs a strong wallop. Garnish with some fresh mint leaves to make it look more festive.

2. Loaded Nacho Fries

Cook some fries -- or tater tots, or whatever you want to use -- until they are very crispy, so they can hold all the toppings without getting soggy. Top them with all of your favorite nacho fixings, and double-layer them if you need to, so that each bite is full of the ideal fry+topping ratio.

3. Golden Grahams S'mores Munch

This one only requires five ingredients and 10 minutes, so you'll probably be able to whip this together no matter how *tired* you are.

4. Green Leafy Jell-O Shots

You can use a leaf-shaped Jell-O mold, or just make these cute green squares and top with fresh mint. Either way, they are adorable and delicious.

5. Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies

Sweet + salty + crunchy + gooey = perfect! Top with crushed potato chips if you want to make them even more shameless.

6. Green Apple Martini

This fun yet strong drink is sweet, sour, boozy and green! Top it off with club soda or lemon-lime soda for a more refreshing, milder highball.

7. Cheetos-Crusted Waffles

Naturally, you should top these with maple syrup and more Cheetos, but you probably already knew that.

8. Bacon Cannolis

This very important dessert proves that if you try hard enough, you can think of an excuse to eat bacon with anything.

9. Cheeseburger Onion Ring Bites

What an excellent way to combine all the foods you wanted to eat into one ball and deep fry them!

10. Milky Way Hot Mess

Chop up your favorite chocolate bar and sprinkle it on top of this easy box-made skillet cake. You can also make something similar using cookie dough or brownie batter. A glorious hot mess indeed!
