Funfetti Cake Dip is a super fun, super delicious cake batter dessert dip waiting to be dunked with graham crackers, pretzels, fruit, or Nilla Wafers.
While we did blog Funfetti dip recipe a few years ago, recently it has gone viral on TikTok as a Dunkaroo Dip so if you are visiting from TikTok, welcome! Grab those sprinkles and let’s get dipping and dunking!
Why this Funfetti Dip works!
Funfetti dip, known as Dunkaroo dip from the 90’s, is super simple to make, done in pretty much minutes and is addictive bite after bite. You will love the readily available ingredients, the thrown back dessert dip, the many ways to make it your own from sprinkles to chocolate chips and the variety of dippers that just flatter this dip.
Because this dip version has no cream cheese, it stays fluffy and light, making it perfect as a sweet appetizer for a potluck or party.
Funfetti cake batter dip is so easy to make and makes you want to dip those wafers, pretzels, and dippers over and over again! Kinda like old school Dunkaroo snack dippers, this dip recipe is so quick to whip up, maybe taking 5 minutes of your time, and is a perfectly simple recipe to make and sit on the counter pre-snack at a birthday party.
Here is a quick glance ingredient list. Once you have verified that you have all ingredients, simple scroll down for full measurements and instructions.

How to make Dunkaroo Dip
It’s so easy to make this dessert dip! Dense and thick, with a consistency like a frosting, this appetizer dip makes for perfect “no fall” dipping! While my particular cake batter of choice is Funfetti, you can also use brownie mix or flavored other cakes that are seasonal like strawberry, pumpkin, and chocolate! Another recipe where this technique is used is no bake Christmas cookie dough dip.
- In a large mixing bowl, add dry boxed cake mix, whipped topping and yogurt.
- Beat all together well until fluffy.
- Fold in 1/4 cup of jimmies or sprinkles.
- Spoon cake batter dip into a bowl for serving and sprinkle with remaining sprinkles before serving with vanilla wafer cookies, fruit, or pretzels.
- Dessert dips like this with dairy are best stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
This cake batter recipe makes tons of dip! I’d say 4-6 cups of dip, meaning you will never run out and is perfect for a large party. Make sure you buy 2 boxes of wafers or have lots of dippers so you don’t run out. I would easily say it serves 12!
Just like eating raw cookie dough, there is always a small risk that raw flour could contain salmonella bacteria. If this risk is a concern for you, put flour on a baking sheet and back for 10 minutes on 350 degrees prior to adding to dessert dip. This will not change the flavor of the dip. Additionally, there are cake box mixes that already have pre-baked and heat- treated flours if you check the box.
Yes! Dips like this work really well and can be made a day in advance.

Raw cake mix? Won’t that make someone sick?
Hi Stephanie, cake flour, just like raw cookie dough, has a small risk of Salmonella. In fact, many people dont realize it, but nut butters, salad and fruits all have a slight risk. I noted in the drop down how to heat-treat the cake flour, but you can also purchase boxed cake mix that is pre-treated. I realized after your comment it might not be as noticeable in the drop down, so I added it in bolder letters. You can cook the boxed cake mix for 10 minutes on 350 in order to use it raw in dessert dips.
