If you find yourself home early tonight, all is not lost. From two-minute guacamole to crispy, bacon candy, here are 10 fast snacks that will (almost) make up for a bad date.

1. Sesame-Chile Kettle Corn
Watching a rom-com solo is better with this sweet-and-salty kettle corn, which gets a fiery kick from whole red chiles.

2. Two-Minute Guacamole
True to its name, this guacamole takes less than two minutes to make. It may also disappear in two minutes.

3. Spiced Pita Chips
These crunchy chips are sprinkled with za'atar, the Middle Eastern spice blend made with sumac, sesame seeds and dried herbs.

4. Midnight Tortas
Roy Choi's late-night sandwich features fried eggs, spinach, pork belly and roasted jalapeños.

5. Garlic Bread
Ready in just 10 minutes, this garlicky bread is great on its own.

6. Three-Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Grilled cheese is the ultimate comfort food, and this version has three different melty cheeses.

7. Bacon Candy
This three-ingredient snack is crispy, sweet and salty.

8. Banana-Nutella S'Mores
This classic, all-American dessert will help you forget a bad date.

9. Toasted Bread and Bittersweet Chocolate
7 minutes is all you need for these fantastic melted chocolate toasts.

10. Chocolate Frosting
Skip the cupcakes and just make the luscious frosting.
