Funfetti cake batter dip

I have been eyeing up this recipe on Pinterest for quite sometime now. I was just turned off because I really don’t like using box cake mixes. I decided to substitute the plain non-fat yogurt for french vanilla organic yogurt, and the regular cool whip for a natural brand of cool whip (one with no HFCS or hydrogenated oils). Then I used a box of plain white organic cake mix and just added the sprinkles myself. I would say it turned out to be a tasty success! I would be curious to know how this turns out using cake batter made from scratch though…anyone tried it?

You will need:

  • 2 cups vanilla (or plain) yogurt
  • 1 cup cool whip
  • 1 box cake mix (funfetti or white)
  • sprinkles (optional)

Whip it all together and serve with animal crackers! Delicious! My kids love this!
