Dip could literally be it’s own food group at my house and I’m always looking for an occasion to make some kind of dippy snack!
During the holidays, I always make our favorite holiday cheese ball, it’s a tradition and is amazing to spread on crackers. I took those flavors, added in some bacon, because bacon makes everything better, plus I added some mayo and sour cream, which made it an amazing dip!
When I made my weekly trip to Walmart, I saw the new Cheez-It Crunch’d Puffed-Up Crunch with Real Cheese. I grabbed a couple of bags plus some Cheez-It Groves, which are always on the list. If you haven’t tried the Cheez-It Grooves, they are like the best of Cheez-It and a chip into one delicious snack. I just knew the guys were going to love these new Cheez-It Crunch’d cheesy snacks.
Over the weekend, the guys came in from checking on the cows and they were starving of course. They were ready to gather around the fire, the tv and the food!
Both the Cheez-It Crunch’d and Cheez-It Grooves were delicious with the Bacon Cheese Ball Dip. I had made a sweet and delicious Strawberry-Lime Punch to go along with our cheesy snacks. We had a seriously cheesy snack feast!
Basketball season is upon us and if it’s your game, make sure to pick up the new Cheez-It Crunch’d for your game day snack fest! Growing up, basketball was my Dad’s game. We watched our favorite college and professional teams every weekend. Often times we would go down to the local park and shoot hoops for hours on end. Good times I tell ya!
So here’s to gathering with family and friends to cheer on your favorite basketball teams with some mighty good food!
