Looking for snack recipes for all of your basketball-watching? Look no further, I have a few recipes that I’ve concocted for the games.This year, both of my alma maters have made it into the NCAA tournament- UMass Amherst and UConn. Go Minuteman Husky! God, that’s a terrifying beast. I’ll be cheering for them both, albeit warily as, like all sports, I have no idea what’s going on. Still, I’ve come up for some snacks for the game for all to enjoy.DSC_8465

Triple ‘B’ Dip (Brie, Bacon, and Barbecue)

4 tablespoons of spicy barbecue sauce
8 tablespoons of sour cream
8 tablespoons of cream cheese
4 slices of bacon 1/2 lb. wedge of brie or camembert cheese
Cayenne pepperDSC_84641. Preheat the oven to 350 and prepare a large, deep sheet pan with about an inch of water to create a water bath. Start frying the bacon, and mix the sour cream, barbecue sauce, and cream cheese in a bowl until combined.

2. Layer the barbecue sauce, crumbled pieces of bacon, and slices of brie on top. Place the ramekins in the water bath and top with cayenne pepper.DSC_84633.

Get ready for #DRMunchMadness with these ingredients and more- I picked most of these items up at Duane Reade, so it was easy for me to get all of my shopping done in one place. With #CollectiveBias, I made these great recipes for my friends in no time, and passed them out to some classmates before a marathon property session…and basketball sneak peak.
