These homemade dunkaroos are the BEST. Dunkaroo Dip (Funfetti Dip) tastes just like real dunkaroos when paired with these homemade graham crackers!
I’m always on the hunt for sweet and savoury recipes that are great for entertaining. Things that are simple to make and that your guests can snack on throughout the evening. When it comes to sweet things I like to keep the portions very small. That way, even someone with a mild sweet tooth will have just one, and somebody who loves sweets can have 10! Mini cupcakes, mini cookies, mini tarts…that sort of thing. This week, I wanted to make mini cookies with a twist. The first thought was mini cookies with some sort of dip and then it occured to me…’hellooo, that’s a dunkaroo!’ So here they are: my take on homemade dunkaroos! A delicious and simple dunkaroo dip (aka. funfetti dip) paired with amazing homemade graham crackers.
Did you ever eat dunkaroos when you were young? Admittedly, I only had them a couple of times but what’s not to love? I keep calling these ‘adult dunkaroos’ but it’s only because I’m at that age where baking anything at home still feels very ‘adult’ to me (in denial grown up/typical millennial). Keep reading for the best dunkaroo dip recipe!
In true dunkaroo fashion, I went for graham crackers and a funfetti dip. I adapted this homemade graham cracker recipe from one on Smitten Kitchen.
This recipe makes approximately 150 1″ round homemade graham crackers. Half of the batch is shown in these photos and I found that half was a good amount for the dip. You could certainly make half of the cracker recipe or double the dip but these crackers are so delicious that I may recommend making the full recipe of them regardless!
Homemade Graham Cracker Ingredients:
-2 1/2 cups flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-3/4 teaspoon salt
-1 cup brown sugar
-1/2 cup unsalted butter cubed and chilled
-2 tablespoons vanilla extract
-1/3 cup milk
-1/3 cup honey
Dunkaroo Dip Ingredients
-2 cups plain greek yogurt
-1 cup whipping cream slightly whipped(1 small carton)
-1/2 bag Betty Crocker Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix (aka funfetti cake mix!)
Combine thoroughly all of the dry ingredients in a bowl – the salt, baking soda, and sugar. Cut in the cubed butter until the mix is consistent. Combine in a food processor or with an electric mixer. Like always, I kept things very 1910 and I cut the butter in with two knives and then used my hands to combine completely. One day I will buy a food processor, I promise, but for now I’ll remain a good example of how to do things even in the most modestly supplied kitchen! Regardless of mixing method, ensure that the mixture is consistent.
In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients – honey, milk and vanilla. Once combined, add in the dry ingredients and mix totally. The mixture will be soft, sticky, and smell delicious!
Flatten the dough into a rectangular slab that is approximately 1″ thick. Cover it with saran wrap, and chill. Once chilled, roll out the dough on a floured surface. This dough is quite sticky and I found that I even needed a fair bit of flour on the top so that the rolling pin did not stick. Once your dough is rolled out it is time to cut your shapes.
I wanted my crackers to be small for perfect dunkaroo dip dunking. I used a shot glass as my cookie cutter…continuing with my ‘use what ya got and make it work’ kitchen trend. Yes, it worked perfectly! Evenly space your crackers on a cookie sheet that is either lightly greased or has a layer of parchment paper. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and bake your crackers until golden. The cookies were well cooked in under 10 minutes because they are small, so carefully watch! Keep the remainder of your dough chilled until you want to use it. I even chilled the cookie sheet with the cut forms on it for 15 minutes before baking them. Chilling is very important with this recipe!
Whip 1 small carton of whipping cream. The whipped cream does not have to be fully whipped and just slightly thickened is fine. Obviously (do I even need to say it at this point?) I did this with a whisk, you can also whip the cream with a hand mixer. Combine the yogurt, cream, and cake mix in a bowl and stir until combined. Chill the dunkaroo dip for an hour before serving. If you’re feeling fun – top it off with sprinkles ;). Serve these homemade dunkaroos at your next party and wait for the nostalgic childhood lunchtime stories to come out!
