19 Recipes For the 'Gilmore Girls' Fanatic

You know you're jealous of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore's metabolisms. Watching them eat the most delicious (and unhealthy) foods has been inspirational to girls like us who love some good takeout and eating entire cakes in one sitting. In honor of the upcoming Gilmore Girls reboot, we decided to round up snacks worthy of a Gilmore. Munch on these goodies while watching old episodes and waiting not-so-patiently for those new episodes to arrive. 

1. Stuff 'n Clutter Snack Mix


We figure that the girls would start out small when it comes to making their own treats for movie night. This one's a savory mix of all your favorites (plus bacon!). We're sure it will disappear in a flash.

2. Walking Nachos


Since the girls are always on the run, whether they're late or just avoiding an awkward Friday night dinner, these convenient and spicy snacks are awesome. Plus, they're cute and small enough to justify seconds…or thirds.

3. Mini Popcorn Balls with Chocolate Fondue


These popcorn balls combine the two best flavors—sweet and salty! They're great for a girls' night in, binge-watching shows and swapping stories. Can't you picture the Gilmore girls snacking on these while doing just that?

4. Nutella Stuffed Pancakes


Luke's Diner has surely added Nutella to the menu by now, right? Though the ladies might opt for less fruit on top, we'll leave that up to you.

5. Homemade Pop-Tarts


When they aren't noshing on diner food for breakfast, Lorelai and Rory usually have Pop-Tarts. Why not try your hand at making your own from scratch?

6. Soft Pretzel Bites


No one can resist these bite-sized snacks while on a trip to the mall; imagine how much better they'd be in the comfort of your own home (where you can eat as many as you want!). Go crazy with the toppings—stick with the savory theme or dip them in something sweet.

7. Hostess Cupcakes


Instead of going all the way to your nearest Dosey's Market for some sweet treats, make your own with ingredients you've already got hiding in your pantry! These cupcakes are just like the tasty store-bought kind, too.

8. Cheesy Bacon Burger Fries


It's like all your favorite items from the diner menu got together for a party. In other words, this recipe is a total dream come true! Instead of ordering crazy chili fries at a fast food restaurant, make these yourself, so you know they'll have exactly everything you like.

9. The Ultimate Burger Dog


Another great example of why diner foods should join forces. This snack does require some grilling, but it's a small price to pay for a great dinner with a fun twist.

10. Pizza Pinwheels


Everyone loves pizza, especially our favorite mother/daughter duo, so why not celebrate that love with a new take on the classic? These snacks are easy enough to make and even easier to pop in your mouth while watching Netflix.

11. Zesty Ranch Fries


Another iconic snack nobody can deny? French fries, and we've got a fantastic spin on those, too! These have a bit of a kick to them, which we think the Gilmore girls (and you) would enjoy.

12. Hot Chocolate Fudge


Here's another gift for your sweet tooth. The best part about this recipe is that you can make it in a microwave—how easy is that? This fudge is perfect paired with a cup of actual hot chocolate, too!

13. Sweet Sushi


You can have dessert sushi—just like the girls did when Lorelai turned the house into Asia—but use a lot less energy to make it. Substitute some of these candies for your favorite candy if you'd like. Regardless, imagine how cute you'll look eating these at home in your robe.

14. Coffee Cake in a Mug


If we know anything about the Gilmore girls' slightly bad habits, it's that they're crazy about coffee. So, they would obviously be obsessed with this easy coffee cake.

15. Mini Corn Dogs


Everyone wants a corn dog when they go to a carnival, but you can bring that novelty to your own kitchen. We know the Gilmore girls would in a heartbeat, especially since these are super easy to make.

16. S'more Cheese Ball


This heavenly hunk of future cavities is great for dipping graham crackers or—as any Gilmore girl would—an even sweeter cookie. Trust us, you'll be hooked on this simple snack!

17. Easy Homemade Egg Rolls


Instead of calling Al's Pancake World, make these yummy egg rolls. You can customize them to fit your taste buds, and you won't have to feel embarrassed about how many you would have ordered.

18. Easy Cinnabon Monkey Bread


Monkey bread is a childhood fave for a reason. If you've never had it, this is the recipe to try.

19. Garlic Cheese Bombs


Put your worries of bad breath aside and dig into these adorable and insanely good snacks. You know that your favorite Gilmores would!

The Gilmore gals may not be the most avid cooks, but their taste in food is undeniably delicious. Which of these recipes will you be attempting first?
