Birthday Cake Dip

This recipe has been floating around Pinterest for some time, and I finally had the perfect excuse to try it. Between birthday parties and picnics and more picnics, I actually had WAY more than plenty of excuses. I made it once and it flew out of the bowl, so now I've tweaked the recipe and made it about four more times. In other words, the idea is a keeper. Kids especially seem to like it, and I pretty much always have the ingredients on hand, so it's easy to throw together in a hurry.

Birthday Cake Dip

1 6 oz container vanilla yogurt
1/3 cup Cool Whip or whip cream
1/2 cup Funfetti cake mix

This is going to be terribly complicated, so I hope you can stick with me. Place the yogurt, Cool Whip, and cake mix in a bowl. Stir them up until they are well mixed. You're done.

I know, you're exhausted just reading that.

For best results, make it at least an hour before you need it. The colors in the cake mix become more vivid once they've sat around for a little bit.

You can top it with some rainbow sprinkles to make it a little more colorful, if you want. Serve it with animal crackers. The dip tastes *exactly* like cake batter, just minus the whole I-don't-know-anyone-who-got-salmonella-after-licking-the-mixer-beaters-but-if-I-eat-the-whole-bowl-of-raw-batter-that-would-probably-be-bad guilt issues.

Hunh. I have a feeling this will save me tons of money on those silly 'personal brownies' that I've been buying for bad days at work and eating raw (the ones that come in a single serve bowl with a packet of chocolate frosting or whatever) though I'm not quite sure how I'm going to explain it to the boss. Maybe I'll just hide it in the back of the fridge... *ponders*

This looks awesome! Thank you, Recipe Guru.
Added bonus for me is that I have dairy-free substitutes. Score!

While my teeth seem to cringe and possibly break off at the thought of how sweet that is, I'm keeping it on my too make list for birthdays this year. High five.

It probably doesn't taste like it, but this makes me think of Dunkaroos. Remember those? I've seen it on pinterest, and I think I am going to serve this at the baby shower I'm hosting next weekend.
