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
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!
