    Do you remember Dunkaroo Dip? I think it hit the peak of popularity in the 90’s, but honestly I was never allowed to have it.

    I had one of those healthy moms. No Twinkies. No HoHos. No Ding Dongs. Once a year on our birthday we were able to select one special treat for school lunch. I also wouldn’t eat the school lunch, but that was of my own volition, not my mother’s doing.

    As an adult, I have discovered that some of these treats and delicious and some might have just been perceived as delicious due to my fantasizing about having them. Dunkaroo Dip falls into the “this is DELICIOUS” category.

    Unfortunately, they don’t make Dunkaroo Dip anymore! I have no idea why, this stuff is tasty. But I guess I don’t need to be eating little packets of creamy deliciousness all the time and neither do my kids.

    Now we just make Dunkaroo Dip on special occassions. The recipe is simple and it is easy to customize to any occasions or holiday. You can also check out my Halloween Dunkaroo Dip and tri-colored Christmas Dunkaroo Dip.

    How to make Dunkaroo Dip? Just 3 ingredients and food coloring is all it takes to make your childhood come alive. One of those ingredients is nonfat Greek yogurt… so I rationalize these aren’t as bad for you as the old school favorite.

    White cake mix, vanilla Greek yogurt and whipped cream is all it takes! You’ll be amazed at how easily it comes together and what a hit it is at your next party.

    I like to serve my St. Patrick’s Day Dunkaroo Dip with different types of cookies. They usd to come with Teddy Grahams, but I like this version with Nilla Wafers for Animal Crackers. You can use anything you want.

    Do I have to use white cake mix? You can use other flavors, but if you plan to add food coloring be mindful of the color of the cake mix and the colors you are adding. White cake mix is the perfect base to make any hue you desire.

    Chocolate, of course, will be delicious, but won’t be green.
