This Cheeze Its dip is easy to make and SO delicious. It’s perfect for game day!
It’s that time of year when the basketball season starts to really heat up! While I may not be a huge fan myself, my hubby loves to watch basketball and I love a good excuse to whip up some sports-themed snacks whether it’s just for the two of us or to entertain friends for a festive basketball-watching party.
At the top of the list for fun snacks is anything crispy and crunchy and Cheez-It totally fits that description. I was pretty excited to see that there are some brand new snacks from Cheez-It!
Cheez-It Crunch’d is a super fun crunchy puff made with 100% real cheese. These are super light, fluffy and fun! Cheez-It Grooves combine the best of Cheez-It and a chip to make an awesome snack that I think is perfect for dipping!
To put that dipping ability to the test, I picked up the new Cheez-It varieties at Walmart and then created this delicious veggie ranch dip that compliments the cheesy goodness of Cheez-It.
Veggie Ranch Dip Recipe
8 oz light sour cream
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup finely chopped carrots
1/3 cup finely chopped broccoli
1 packet (1 oz.) ranch seasoning
How to Make Cheeze It Dip:
Chop carrots and broccoli into very small pieces. Mix together veggies, sour cream, yogurt and seasoning mix. Allow to cool for an hour to blend flavors before serving.
To make serving our Cheez-It extra fun, I made this fun Basketball Backboard Printable. Just print out the set of four backboards, cut them out, and attach to the top of a plastic cup. Fill with your Cheez-It snacks and serve. For a larger gathering, you can write names on the backboards to avoiding snack cup confusion! That’s a slam dunk!

I could eat a whole box of Cheez-its! I need to stop buying them because I’m addicted.
I just tried these as a sample. They are pretty good.
Chrystal @ YUM eating says
Cheeze Its are so addictive! I can eat the whole box if I am not careful and just mindless munching. I will have to try these next time I am grocery shopping. I havent tested them yet.

I love the idea of making my own veggie dip! That has gotta taste so good with fresh veggies.
We don’t watch basketball very much. We are move a football fan family.

The backboard on the snack cups is such a fun easy way to dress up the snacks! My boys would be having fun ‘shooting’ the Crunch’d into their cups 🙂 #client
