Tournament time is practically a holiday in our home.  On the years when we can swing it the working adults take vacation days and spend the entire week parked on the couch, in our favorite gear, yelling at the tv!  I love to fill out a bracket, place casual bets with my family, and get so immersed in college hoops my clock becomes the game schedule.  And then there’s the food.  Second only to basketball are the snacks that you get to munch on while you watch the games.

We are huge fans of REESE’S in our house and OREO Cookies and the rest of the fam abosolutely loves Coke Zero {I’m not much of a soda person, though}.  So I ran into Target, grabbed everything I needed, and rushed home to whip up my favorite game day recipes.  Other than my loaded baked potato dip this fruit dip has got to be my most requested recipe.  Whether it’s for a game day appetizer or a movie night with the girls this fruit dip is a favorite among my friends and family.

Don’t let the word “fruit” confuse you because the healthiest thing about this dip is the fruit you dip into it.  But the best thing about this dip is the REESE’S you top it with!  And with only three ingredients its no wonder this dip is a must have for your tournament watching marathon this season!  Don’t worry, you’ll burn off all those calories by cheering and jumping up and down 😉  But I think my favorite might be these OREO Cookies that look just like basketballs.

And honestly these babies are just as easy as the fruit dip.  And so cute!! Just melt my favorite Wilton Candy Melts in the microwave or a double boiler {sometimes I use white chocolate and dye it orange instead}, use a fork to dip the OREOs, and set it on a baking rack to set. Easy peasy! I let mine set up in the freezer for about 30 minutes and then I melted some milk chocolate for the basketball laces.  They turned out SO CUTE!

Yes! Pretzels are my favorite for the sweet and salty combination but just about any fruit will do, too :)
