It's pretty much a fact that any good Olympics party needs a good Olympics-themed snack. So consider this yours from the opening ceremony through the closing one — and for every exciting event in between.

A Fruit for Every Color

The five colorful rings of the classic Olympics symbol are represented with five colorful fruits. Of course, take these as suggestions: If you prefer raspberries instead of strawberries for the red ring, no one is going to fault you for that. Make sure to serve this on a large white platter to really make each fruit ring pop.

But you're not just serving a giant platter of fruit here — it's the sauce that really makes this special. Serve this sweet and creamy mascarpone and yogurt sauce alongside the rings for your guests to dunk and drizzle.

Blue

Of course it has to be blueberries — carefully form them into a circle. These little guys make for a pretty blue ring that stands out.

Black

Thank you, blackberries, for being one of the only black fruits out there. They're plump and juicy and big enough to be dipped right into the tangy sauce.

Red

Strawberries are always a crowd favorite. Let your guests pour the mascarpone sauce right over the berries on their plate, or just dunk a strawberry right into the bowl.

Yellow

Tropical pineapple keeps things extra fun. Cut the fruit in chunks and form it into a ring to make the first bottom ring.

Green

This is underdog kiwi's time to shine. Peel the fuzzy fruit and overlap slices in a ring to form the last bottom ring. Again, dunking is encouraged (notice a trend here?)

What snacks are you planning to serve opening night of the Olympic Games or while watching any of the events?
