Last night we had the teens from church over to watch the OKC Thunder play in the NBA Finals. I decided to make some “basketball” snacks since they would be here about four hours and all teens get hungry in that amount of time 🙂
I made two pizzas both with cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella to look more like basketballs. Then I added mini pepperoni to one and olives to the other for the basketball lines. I used store bought crust to save time and regretted it, it didn’t taste very good. Next time I’ll make my own, but they still looked good 🙂
I also made my favorite tortilla chip dip which is super easy. Just one container of sour cream and a packet of taco seasoning (my favorite is Taco Bell seasoning). Usually I top it with lettuce, salsa, cheese and olives. Last night I just went with cheddar cheese and olives for the lines to look like a basketball.
I also made my favorite cheeseball recipe. It’s just two blocks of cream cheese, turkey lunch meat slices into 1/2″ squares and 3 T Zesty Italian dressing all mixed and then hardened into a ball wrapped in Saran wrap in the fridge. I don’t usually coat the outside at all but last night I coated it in cheddar cheese and used olives for the lines to make it look like a basketball.
My favorite snack of the night was by far my brownie bites! I just got regular brownie bites, chocolate icing and nilla wafers. I put a little chocolate icing on the bottom of a nilla wafer and stuck it to the top of the brownie bite. Then I put some of the chocolate icing in a small baggie and snipped the corner just a tiny bit with scissors and piped it onto the nilla wafers for the lines on the basketball. I loved how cute they were and they tasted even better 🙂
I made some other round things but they did not look like a basketball. Thanks for stopping by!
