We all have nostalgia from our childhood. One of mine is the few occasions I was allowed to have the packaged sweets like Ho-Hos, Ding Dongs and Dunkaroo Dip. 

Make sure you PIN Chocolate Dunkaroo Dip

Do you remember Dunkaroo Dip? It came in those little blue packages with dip on one side and wafer cookie sticks on the other for dipping. I don’t think they make it any more, I haven’t seen it in ages.

But I supposed that is even more reason to make it myself. And you know what, homemade Dunkaroo Dip couldn’t be easier! It literally only uses 3 ingredients: cake mix, whipped cream and yogurt. That’s all! 

You could turn any flavor of cake mix into Dunkaroo Dip. Use funfetti cake mix for a funfetti dip that would be the perfect dessert for a birthday party.

Use strawberry cake mix for a delicious and festive Valentine’s Day dessert. You could even use a white cake mix and food coloring to customize your dip for any party or occasion. The options are endless!

PRO TIP: Sift powdered cake mix to remove any clumps. 

However, this time I was craving chocolate! For Chocolate Dunkaroo Dip, you’ll need a chocolate cake mix. I like to use Devil’s food, but if you have another flavor you prefer, you do you.

I use vanilla Greek yogurt and plain whipped cream topping, but if you are lucky enough to find either of these in a chocolate flavor, I advise you use them. Bring on the chocolate-y goodness. YUM!

PRO TIP: Use Greek yogurt for this recipe, as opposed to regular yogurt. Greek is much thicker and it will impact the consistency of your cake mix dip.
