Best of 90s Food: Dunkaroos

This year, the Baltimore Sun's Mobbies is asking each blogger to blog about the thing that she would like to bring back from the 90s. Being that this is a food blog, I went straight for everyone's favorite snacks from the 90s. Earlier this week, I posted a recipe for Hot Pockets, and below is a recipe for the beloved Dunkaroos. Up next will be some DIY Lunchables and Pudding Pops. Enjoy!

In making this recipe, I realize just how much sugar is in these, and they fed this to us as kids! This is supposed to be a "skinny" recipe, but when you're making something with cake batter and whipped cream, there are only so many calories that you can save. This recipe makes a ton of dip and is based off of the recipe from Oh So Pretty.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: none

1/2 box of Funfetti cake mix -- or use your favorite cake mix. You can even make it gluten-free, if necessary.
1 cup of fat free vanilla yogurt -- I used Greek yogurt, since it is vegetarian
1/4 cup of heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon of granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract (for whipped cream)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (for frosting mix)
Handful of colored sprinkles -- use at your discretion!
Graham crackers for dunking

In a mixer, pour the heavy cream, sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Mix on medium-high until you make whipped cream and set aside. If you don't have a mixer, you can do it by hand, but it is tiring.

In a large mixing bowl, pour in the cake mix, the yogurt, the whipped cream and the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Mix completely until it has become a heavy frosting dip.
Fold in the sprinkles.

Top with remaining sprinkles and put in your fridge for at least 10 minutes.
Serve with graham crackers and enjoy!
