Skinny Cake Batter Dip {Dunkaroo Dip}

My love for frosting started way back when I was just a little one.
My favorite lunchbox treat were Dunkaroos.  They were little packs of mini cookies with a side of funfetti frosting to dip the cookies in.  Forget fruit snacks and granola bars, I wanted Dunkaroos.   

This dip is a healthier version of my childhood favorite treat.  The base of the dip is non-fat yogurt . . . I used regular yogurt instead of Greek Yogurt, because I was worried the Greek Yogurt flavor would overpower everything else.   This dip is thick and creamy and does not taste "skinny" one bit.  Your kids will love it and it would make a great after school snack.

I loved this on days two and three, however, the extra sprinkles I added for a garnish started to melt in the dip.  Unless you are serving this to a big crowd, you will most likely have leftovers for several days.  It makes a ton of dip and could easily be cut in half if you'd like.

  1. What a neat idea! Edible cake batter sounds like a great idea to me :)

  2. Dunkaroos!!! I totally remember those. Great recipe!

  3. Thanks for sharing! This sounds delicious!

  4. I might eat the whole thing. I can't even have cake mix int he house (I'm not kidding). I'm not a cake person, but cake batter is something different. I just dump some dry in a bowl mix with some water and the perfect treat! I will have to try this, at least it would add some nutrition into it.
