It’s the middle of March which also means college basketball is about to get crazy!
That leaves me with two questions for you.
#1 Have you made your bracket yet?
#2 Are you stocked up on game time snacks.
The good news is you still have time to fix both of those and today I am going to share the perfect game time combo with you.
Looks pretty fantastic, right?
The Best Loaded Baked Potato Dip and Cheez-It Hot & Spicy Grooves.
One of my newest favorite snacking finds
On one of my recent, glorious trips to Target I spied a sign in the cracker aisle. Large boxes of Cheez-It products are 3 for $8 the 3rd week of February – the 1st week of April. It would have been crazy of me to not buy the three boxes, right?! So I picked out a few flavors I knew the husband would love and headed home.
Cheez-It Grooves may have just replaced chips in the Newman house. They are amazing. The real cheese makes all the difference and you can really taste that flavor in this product. They are thin, crispy and perfection. The perfect snack to stand alone or a great addition to dips as well.
How about a mom-fession: I was secretly hoping the girls wouldn’t like them (terrible I know).
I thought I would say they were spicy and they would snub their noses…. no luck. These crackers have just the slightest bit of kick to them and the girls LOVE it!
The Sriracha snack mix was an instant hit with Russ too. The girls have yet to be brave enough to give it a try though.
He isn’t complaining.
Now let’s get back to game time talk and that UH-mazing dip.
- 8 Strips of cooked bacon crumbled
- 1 Cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 Cup Sour cream
- 2 Cups Sharp cheddar
- 3 Green onions
- 1 T Ranch Powder
- 2 t Hot Sauce (optional)
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.
- Cover and keep refrigerated until ready to eat.

Hosting a game time party can be so much fun and so much work. Here are a few tips to put on a great party but not overwhelm yourself. After all they may come to watch the college basketball and pray their bracket doesn’t bust, but we all know how important the snacks are too.
Game time snack tips
Less but more
Instead of focussing on having LOTS of variety pick a few favorites that everyone loves and make larger amounts of those. You will save both time and money by keeping things focused and simple.
Choose things that can be prepared ahead of time so you don’t miss all of the fun while being stuck in the kitchen.
*Hint* This dip is the perfect thing to make ahead.
Plan to use plastic cups and paper plates to keep clean-up a cinch.
Ask For Help
Usually when people plan to go to a party they expect to bring something. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Stock up on plenty of Cheez-It snacks!
Seriously 3 for $8 and you get to go to Target! What are you waiting for?!
