Dunkaroo dip is a homemade version of the classic childhood treat you’d stick in your lunchbox. Easy, 3-ingredient funfetti flavored dip that’s perfect for animal cracker dunking, and loaded with sprinkles!
A little over two years ago (!) I made this Dunkaroos Pie and my coworkers at a previous job went NUTS for it (apologies for the very old, yellowish, embarrassing photos). They raved about how good the animal cracker crust was, but several people commented that they’d rather just dunk animal crackers into it like a dip.
I agreed with them for two reasons:
- It would be a heck of a lot easier to throw together than having to bake the crust (as delicious as it may be)
- And it would be a heck of a lot easier to serve at a party!
… and then I promptly forgot about it until a week ago.
Since my present-day coworkers had never experienced this sprinkle-filled, cake batter flavored 90s nostalgia, I decided one day to whip some up in the office. You may have seen my post on Instagram about how my coworker went on an Amazon Prime Now spending spree and I further indulged his new addiction and asked him to add the ingredients for this dip.
Side note: Amazon Prime Now is AMAZING. We paid the little bit extra to have it delivered in an hour, and it showed up to our office in Boston in 30 minutes flat. And it was a really, really weird assortment of stuff. A computer monitor cable, ice cream, Cool Whip, funfetti cake mix, yogurt, pudding, a fan… there may have even been a rom-com and a little of puppies in there, I don’t remember. But I’m fairly sure that the guy delivering our order assumed it was for a female computer technician who was PMSing, having hot flashes and going through a breakup.
While I am an Amazon Affiliate and earn a commission if you purchase items from Amazon through ads or links on my site, this isn’t a sponsored post with Amazon. This is just a complete tangent where I’m just telling you – from the bottom of my cold, black heart – that Prime Now is MAGIC. If you live in one of their eligible delivery areas, you have got to try it. With that said puts affiliate hat on for a moment, if you’re not already an Amazon Prime member you should give it a shot with a 30 day free trial (affiliate link) – it’ll change your life.
Alright, back to this dunkaroo dip – which is ALSO magic. My desk neighbor dunked a cracker in it and tasted it, grabbed another cracker and tasted it again, and then frantically searched for his own bowl to pile dip and crackers into while muttering, “You are a WIZARD”. I don’t use Snapchat, but evidently he also snapped a picture of it all with a caption to that effect as well.
Another coworker just kept repeating, “How does this taste like cake batter? I mean, I know what’s in it, but… HOW? HOW IS THIS SO GOOD?!” every time he took a bite.
Others gave me some serious high fives, fist bumps, and a lot of almost NSFW moaning and groaning. When it was almost gone, I dared my office manager to lick the bowl. While I didn’t actually see her do it, that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen…
So… yeah. I’d say this is a winner winner,
chicken cake batter dinner dessert.
I tweaked it a little from my original pie-form recipe to account for the lack of buttery crust that accompanied it. I also wanted to make the quantities easier: a whole box of funfetti cake mix, a whole container of Cool Whip. When I made this in the office, all I had was one of those little 6 ounce single serving yogurts and it worked out just fine – so if you don’t have a full cup of yogurt, I promise everything will be okay.
Go make a batch of this dunkaroo dip and just watch a mass of people come flocking toward you. These are your new best friends – treat them well, and make sure you have a plentiful supply of animal crackers!
I’m serious, order them in bulk (affiliate link). You’ll thank me later.
