Does your family enjoy watching sports together? I have to admit we don’t do it a lot unless it’s the play-offs, then we’re all over it. We cheer for our favorite team, wear the team colors, play our own play-off games and eat till we can’t eat anymore. We have so much fun spending time together as a family, it’s all about the memories and of course, the food.
College basketball is a great opportunity to bring family and friends together for fun and good food. REESE’S® and Walmart® have teamed up for an awesome promotion to help you make game day perfect. I am so excited that I am one of 32 bloggers participating in the REESE’S® Baking Bracket Challenge™. Just the name of the challenge sounds fun, right? You can’t go wrong with recipes using REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cups, other REESE’S® products and shopping Walmart® for their everyday low prices.
I’m so excited to share my Free Throw Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge with you. My kids love my fudge and by adding the REESE’S® products to my already family favorite fudge, it made it even more game day worthy.

For gluten-free fudge, simply leave the Reese’s® Pieces off.

Now I think we’ll go back to playing our favorite basketball spectator play-off game. We pick our favorite team, when our team gets to make a free throw so do we. At the end of the game the team with the most free throw points gets to chose what activity we will participate in that week. It can be hiking, bowling, going to the movies, miniature golf, etc. Sounds fun, right?
