If you are a follower of Savory Experiments, you’ll know I am not a huge Halloween person.

I like seeing the stream of cute, dressed-up baby faces on my Facebook feed, but I am far from one of those people who decks out the house with Halloween decorations and starts planning 6 months ahead.

I also don’t really care for blood, guts and ghouls. So any Halloween dessert I make is generally of the cutesy variety, following a color scheme instead of donning skeletons and brains.

Easy desserts are my favorite for all occasions, which is why I love this Halloween Dunkaroo Dip so much. It can literally be made in minutes!

Dessert dips have honestly become one of my go-to desserts for any time I want something quick and easy just because they’re so simple but delicious.

One trick for this Dunkaroo Dip, or any dessert dip recipe made with cake mix, even regular ole cake, is to sift the mix. It will get rid of the large clumps that become so challenging to beat out.

You’ll even hear it called cake batter dip or cake mix dip sometimes.

For this cake batter dip recipe, it is vital that you use a WHITE cake mix. Why? Because if you use yellow and add orange food coloring, the color might be off. It really depends on the mix.

I love using chocolate animal crackers, especially for Halloween. I even think one of the shapes is an arched back cat, or maybe I just made that up to feel more festive.

Kid Friendly

One of the things I love about this Halloween Dunkaroo Dip is that it’s a dessert appropriate for all age groups.

Kids love it because it’s festive and fun – especially served with animal crackers – and adults love it because it’s yummy.
