We are huge college basketball fans at my house and our eyes have been glued to the TV screen for the past few weeks. The big tournament is underway and I’ve got my fingers crossed for my favorite team to make it to that final game.

Meanwhile, I’m planning a basketball viewing party and inviting the entire family over. My White Chocolate and OREO® Cookies Parfait will be the MVP of my party and will keep everyone happy, whether their team wins or loses.

OREO Cookies Parfait and Basketball Viewing Party

My family is a house divided when it comes to rooting for our favorite college basketball teams. It doesn’t help that our favorite teams are also big rivals! It’s all in fun (mostly) and my Nothing But Net Basketball Viewing Party will bring us all together to watch the big game. If my team wins, I’ll have bragging rights for an entire year!

When it comes to hosting a basketball watch party, simple is always best. Casual parties call for a casual setup. But casual doesn’t have to be boring. I’ll show you how I set up my party and share my recipe for White Chocolate and OREO Cookies Parfait.

Nothing But Net Basketball Viewing Party

Create a Theme

Theme parties are the easiest parties to plan. You just have to make sure you don’t go overboard and carry the theme too far. Or not. Can you really go overboard with a basketball-themed party? I don’t think so!

My Nothing But Net themed party can be easily duplicated. Just use your favorite team colors and you’re good to go.

Helpful Hint: If you don’t have room for a big party table, set up small stations around the room. Often times, I use my big, round coffee table for a food station and a small round table for the drink station.

For my party table backdrop, I grabbed some foam board and covered it with bulletin board paper in my favorite team’s color. I hung an over-the-door basketball hoop over the top of the foam board.

A few basketball player silhouettes complete the backdrop. You can print them out below. Be sure and use card stock. Just cut them out and glue them to the backdrop.

Keep the Food Simple and Easy to Prepare

The spread for my Nothing But Net Party needs to be a winning basket, so I serve all our favorite snacks. Here’s my menu for the Big Game Watch Party:

Nothing But Net Menu - OREO Cookies Parfait Recipe

After I complete my simple menu, I head to Target to stock up on all my favorite party foods and drinks. I love that I only have to make one stop for my recipe ingredients, snacks, and tableware.

I love that my favorites are so easy to find at Target.

Whenever I’m hosting a basketball viewing party, I try to incorporate all my family’s favorites. Not only do they ask for my White Chocolate and OREO Cookies Parfaits, but they always request my Raspberry and Brie Topped RITZ® Crackers. These are super easy to make.

Top the RITZ Crackers with a small slice of Brie cheese. Top with Raspberry Preserves. You have to taste these to understand how delicious they are.

I think it’s a nice touch to add place cards to the food table to let everyone know what they’re about to eat. Some food items are easily recognized, but some are not, so it’s nice to let your guests know what everything is. And, when they ask for the White Chocolate OREO Cookies Parfait recipe, they’ll know it by name.

OREO COOKIE PARFAITS

Do as Much as Possible in Advance

I always set up my food table and decorations the day before my party. I also make my White Chocolate and OREO Cookies Parfaits a few hours ahead of time and let them chill in the fridge. Right before serving, I top them with OREO Cookies. This is a favorite with all my guests!

How to Make White Chocolate and OREO Cookie Parfait

I use mini parfait glasses and this recipe makes approximately 10 parfaits. If you need more, just double the recipe.

Crumble OREO Cookies and set aside. (Save a few OREO Cookies to top the parfaits).

  7. Basketball watch party?! Why hasn’t our family ever thought of that?! Also, this recipe totally had me at Oreos… and then parfait. Can’t wait to try it out.

  8. Everything looks so delicious! Can’t wait to try the parfait. I know the kiddos would love this. It would be great to add to their school lunch as a nice treat or even dessert.
