5 Snacks You Can Make In Your Dorm Room Only Using A Microwave Or Freezer

There are plenty of things to look forward to about college — depending on where you go to school, eating at the campus dining hall every single night is not exactly one of them. Rather than resign yourself to munching on ramen noodles and whatever else you can get with your campus ID card, use your other resources instead. Spoon University has rounded up five snacks you can make using only a microwave or freezer (seriously, that's it), and if we do say so ourselves, these recipes are pretty much genius. Not only are they ridiculously simple to make, but you can also whip them up without ever stepping foot outside of your dorm room. You gotta love brain food that doesn't make you work too hard. Breakfast tacos, spinach artichoke dip, and French toast waffles can all be yours in just a matter of minutes, and trust us — your roommate is going to love you for it.

As college students, we can feel super limited sometimes when it comes to food and our dorm room. But, you'd be surprised at how easy it actually is to create incredible meals that impress all your friends with just a dorm room and a little creativity. Check out these dorm room snacks, and prepare to be amazed.
