Ingredients and Substitutions:
- white cake mix: I prefer the white cake mix since it is the lightest in color. This allows the sprinkles to pop. You could use a yellow cake mix if you prefer but the color will obviously be different.
- cool whip: one 8 oz container, thawed. I used a classic tub of Cool Whip, but you could opt for an extra creamy version, light or even fat free if preferred. Any should work well in this funfetti dip.
- yogurt: I went back and forth on this one and landed on vanilla yogurt. This cake dip is very sweet. I wanted to add a plain yogurt to balance the sweetness slightly, but felt that it didn't quite do it for me. The vanilla yogurt added a bit more flavor. I opted for a vanilla yogurt that only had a small amount of added sugar for less sweetness.
- vanilla extract: A touch of vanilla rounds this all out.
- sprinkles: red, white and blue for all of the patriotic perfection! You can also find some star sprinkles. By all means, change up the sprinkles colors as desired.
Before making this red, white and blue funfetti dip, bake the cake mix if you are concerned about eating raw flour. Just bake it on a sheet pan at 350°F for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool before mixing into the recipe.
Add the cooled cake mix, cool whip, yogurt and vanilla extract to a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until smooth and creamy and fully incorporated. (steps 1-2)
Gently fold in the sprinkles. Try not to stir too vigorously so that the sprinkles don't bleed into the batter. (steps 3-4)
That is it. Nothing else required other than a little chilling!
Serve this funfetti cake dip with:
- 'Nilla Wafers
- animal crackers
- graham crackers
- teddy grahams
- actual Dunkaroos!
- The CDC recommends you do not eat raw flour. I bake the cake mix for about 5 minutes at 350°F. It is meant to reach 165°F in order to kill any bacteria.
- Chilling this cake dip is ideal for everything to set and the texture to be nice, thick. and fluffy. I also think the flavor once it's chilled is better--it needs some time fo the flavors to meld together.
- If you don't like to consume food dyes, there are many dye-free sprinkles available. These Red, White and Blue dye free sprinkles are a great option.
