We Love The 90s: Easy DIY Dunkaroos Dip Recipe!

Sharing is caring!

Oh how I miss the delicious snacks of the 90s! One of them being the incredible Dunkaroos. While many of my friends LOVED the Chocolate dipped version, I couldn’t help but always steer towards the Cinnamon Graham Dunkaroos. I’ve always thought they were discontinued forever, but according to the internet, They are very much still being made in the Canada factory that manufactures them. Being that I’ve searched everywhere and refuse to pay $13 for a pack of 5 Dunkaroos, I’m here to bring you an Easy DIY recipe for the Dunkaroos Dip with the one ingredient that makes it super sweet and many others miss!!

First off I’d like to state that I tried this recipe the regular way with the “3 Ingredients” that everyone writes about, but I did NOT like the taste. I mean it was good, but did not give me that nostalgic feeling that I was hoping for. So I thought “why not experiment?” Being that almost EVERYONE has Vanilla Extract in the kitchen, I grabbed ours. We bring ours straight from the Dominican republic. I don’t know if there’s a difference, but it’s what we’ve Always Used! The results? Oh So Nostalgically Sweet!

What You Need:

  • Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 1.5 – 2 Cups of Plain Yogurt
  • Half container of Cool Whip
  • Teddy Grahams (Any Flavor you desired will work)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • Sprinkles 
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Mixing spoon

1) Grab the mixing bowl and mix the Funfetti Cake mix, plain Yogurt and Cool Whip together. Be sure to mix until smooth leaving No Lumps ! (except the obvious Funfetti “Sprinkles)

2) Cover the bowl and place in your refrigerator. Let it cool for 4 hours.

3) After it has cooled, take it out of the fridge and add the Vanilla Extract. Mix. Taste. If you love the keep as is. If you want it a little sweeter, add another 1/2 teaspoon. 

Voila! Now you’re ready to put it in a nice dipping bowl and dip your Teddy Grahams in. Nothing will ever be as amazing as the original, but this is surely a CLOSE 2nd. My daughter Loved the snack and I was happy to have a Trudeau FUEL Snack & Dip on hand so that she could take it to school.

  1. My kid would love this for sure. As for getting him to make it, PSHT! Looks like you have a great daughter 🙂

    Most of the snacks I ate in the 90s I still occasionally eat today. Ding Dongs. But I also ate those in the 70s and 80s too. They are my favorite!

  2. My mom NEVER let me have these when I was growing up. She was a dental hygienist, it definitely put a damper on the sweet snacks 🙂 I do miss all the music though! Grunge right through to bubblegum pop!

  3. My brothers loved this snack growing up. I always thought the frosting was too sweet..I was that weird kid that didn't like super sweet snacks. My 5 year old would love this!

  4. My daughter loved Dunkaroos as a kid. They were for special occasions only and so she didn't have a lot. We did buy them for her soccer team once. We were pretty much heroes.

  5. I grew up in different country so i'm new to dunkaroos. It would be great fun for kids with they could prepare their own snack dip. I'm sure my daughter would enjoy it! Thanks for sharing.
