This blog is dedicated to what we’re busy with. And lately for me, that’s been eating! (Good thing I don’t have any new year’s resolutions, huh?!) What have I been eating, you ask?
Cake batter dip!
It is SOO good. In fact, I was making it for a church potluck and had my husband taste test it. He had me make a whole new batch just for him! Well I won’t make you wait any longer. Here is the recipe.
Cake Batter Dip
- 1 1/2 cup funfetti cake mix
- 1 cup yogurt
- 1/2 cup cool whip
Mix together cake mix and yogurt until smooth. Fold in cool whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Simple, huh? It’s good with vanilla wafers, animal cracker, grapes, etc., but my favorite is granny smith apples!
What are you going to do with all that left over cake mix? Make cake batter rice krispie treats! I made these about a month ago to kick off a friend’s new diet (best way to do it, huh?). We loved them! I don’t have a picture though because we devoured them too quickly. Oops!
Cake Batter Rice Krispies
(From Gimme Some Oven)
- 3 Tbsp. butter
- 1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
- 1/2 cup funfetti cake mix (original recipe said 1/4, but I increased it to 1/2 and STILL thought it needed more!)
- 6 cups crispy rice cereal
- 1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in (dry) cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press (with buttered fingers) into a baking dish and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.
I know. You’re totally going to go pick up some funfetti cake mix. Go for it! And tell me how it turns out.
