Whether you're a L.A. Dodgers fan or a Houston Astros fan or just a baseball fan (or just a party fan!), you still have to have all the right snacks to make your World Series party a grand slam! Peanuts and popcorn might be ballpark stables, but they don't compare to these sure-to-please-everyone eats. You'll be the M.V.P. of the day (no matter who wins!). 

Hot Dog Bar

This is one stadium snack that's super easy to recreate at home! Grill up the hot dogs and buns ahead of time (make sure you account for seconds!), chop up onions, set out the relish, make sure you have enough Ketchup and mustard, and you're good to go. If your party guests are feeling a little spicy, you can add extras like jalapeños and horseradish. Oh, and don't forget a little nacho cheese.

Pretzel Bites

Just like the ballpark soft pretzel, but bite-sized! With just a few ingredients, you can recreate the experience of biting into that warm, salty bliss. Check out the recipe here!

To step up your game a little, have nacho cheese, spicy mustard, and horseradish available for dipping. 

Babeball Pizza

Put your design skills to work with this (maybe a little kitchy, but definitely) tasty twist on pizza. This is an easy one: either get a frozen pepperoni pizza or make your own from scratch, then arrange the pepperonis to look like red baseball seams on the white mozzarella. Show it off, then slice, and serve. It'll be the best tasting baseball anyone has ever eaten. 

Baseball Diamond Veggie Tray

Speaking of elaborate setups, nothing says, "I'm going to win Best Looking Snack at this party" like a veggie tray designed to look like a baseball diamond! Use broccoli and celery for your infield and outfield, stacks of cucumber for your bases and pitching mound, and little cherry tomatoes for the lines between bases. Not a fan of veggies? Use fruit, but no matter what, make sure there's a dip handy to make everyone happy!

Homemade Cracker Jacks

They don't sing "buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks" for no reason! The sticky sweet popcorn has been part of baseball culture since the beginning. You can make your own in your kitchen using this recipe, but be warned, this version doesn't come with a prize in every box. 

And don't forget no World Series party is complete without beer, gear, and your best cheer!
