This Hot & Spicy Cheese Ball using Cheez-It Baked Snacks is the perfect way to celebrate basketball season!
Are you spending your days watching all those fun basketball games? I remember back in junior high, my science teacher was such a HUGE basketball fan, she would ‘rent’ a TV for the classroom just so she could watch the games during the day. Of course, it didn’t keep her from teaching us either, I also think it’s funny you had to ‘rent’ them back then. I think they are in most classrooms these days plus smart boards too. Times have changed!
In the midst of the games, snacks are a must! This past week my kids and I went on a little adventure to Target to pick up all the ingredients to make these Hot & Spicy Cheese Balls.
The key ingredient to this cheese ball is Cheez-It Hot & Spicy Grooves. These will give the cheese ball just the right amount of zing you have been looking for, I promise! This cheese ball is perfect paired with additional Cheez-It products or veggies too.
We had our Srirarcha Snack Mix and Cheez-It Hot & Spicy Grooves both paired with the cheese ball and as a stand alone snack too. These were both a hit and to be served at most of our parties now.
Cheese balls are so versatile and such a great snack to share with family and friends too.
We just wrapped up our basketball season for our son. His team may not have won at all but they did a great job learning the game. This was the first year any of them had played before going against teams that had played together for several years. They really worked so hard!
Now that his season is wrapped up that gives us more time to watch the games on TV!
