If you figure the snacks into your calorie plan, I don't see a problem with them. I generally finish my relatively large supper (7-800 cals) within 2-3 hours of bedtime. So, I don't get a chance to get hungry again.
You could also go to bed earlier, if that is a "danger time" for you (as it is for me). Other studies have show that those who get more sleep tend to lose weight faster (somewhat counterintuitive, I know).
If you're not losing, you may need to rethink your calorie intake level, perhaps weigh/measure your portions for a while and/or bump up your activity level.
Let us know how things go.
Well, My calories are already low (1000-1200) with the snacks, so going lower not an option. I could increase the exercise though.
