Easy as 1-2-3 Funfetti Cookie Dip

Today's post is a quick one!  I have a lot going on around here today, but I wanted to be sure to get this posted before I started my busy day! 

With so many holiday parties to attend in the next week or so, I think this recipe will come in handy for when you need something to take with you, something that won't take a lot of time and energy! 

I don't know about you, but I love cake batter!  I love to lick the bowl when I make a cake.  I even save a little extra batter at the bottom for myself!  I know, we've all heard how bad raw eggs in cake batter can be.  But, I've been licking the bowl since I was a kid and I haven't gotten sick yet!  That being said, I would NEVER imagine letting Grace eat cake batter with raw eggs!  I'm one of those "do as I say and not as I do" type moms! 

So, when I saw a recipe over on Pinterest for 3-2-1 Funfetti Dip, I just knew I had to make it over the holidays! 

The original recipe calls for plain yogurt.  I didn't have plain yogurt, so I made mine using the low fat vanilla yogurt I had in the fridge.  Mmmmm!  Perfect! 



It's in the fridge, chilling until we head out to a house warming party for Joe's brother and sister-in-law.  Can't wait for everyone to try it! 



So, do you want a quick and easy recipe to whip up for family and friends during this busy holiday season?  Well, here it is: 

Easy as 1-2-3 Funfetti Cookie Dip

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 2/3 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/3 cool whip
  • extra sprinkles, optional
Directions:
  • With a hand mixer, mix the cake mix, yogurt and cool whip, until well combined.
  • Chill for a couple of hours until ready to serve. 
  • Transfer to a serving bowl or chip and dip bowl and top with extra sprinkles!

Notes:
  • In a pinch, this dip is good un-chilled.  I think it tastes more like cake batter, straight from the bowl that way! 
  • Serve this with a combination of cookies, graham crackers and pretzels.  I plan to pick up a box of 'Nilla Wafers and Animal Crackers on my way to the party!  (Nothing like last minute, huh?  It's been a crazy week.)
  • This dip can easily be doubled or tripled.  Just remember to use the 3-2-1 ratio:  3 parts cake mix, 2 parts yogurt, 1 part cool whip.  The original recipe states how to make single-serve portions, for those I-really-need-some-cake-batter moments! 

Grace saw me taking the pictures for this post and immediately wanted some!  I gave her a tiny bit on a spoon and added a few extra sprinkles!  That kid loves her sprinkles!
