Hey y’all! So I’ve been whipping up some goodies lately. I had a few flops as well as a few successes. This particular recipe I’m excited about because it turned out great. I took a simple box cake mix and switched up the ingredient measurements. I then topped it with a frosting that any 90’s baby would love. Yes. Dunkaroos frosting.
For anyone not familiar, Dunkaroos were really popular when I was growing up. You weren’t cool if you didn’t have any in your lunch box. They consisted of cookies and this unforgettable icing that you dunk the cookies in. Well I heard they were back in stores now, but the recipe for this icing has been floating around for the past couple years. I must say that it is pretty spot on. The ingredients are so simple. Luckily for me I had all the ingredients already, and there was no need to run to the store.
You mix together plain or vanilla yogurt, Cool Whip, and Funfetti cake mix.
And…voila — you have Dunkaroos frosting. Ridiculously easy right?
- ½ a box of Funfetti cake mix
- 1 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt
- 2 ounces of Cool Whip
- Mix all ingredients together until you have a frosting consistency.
The texture of these cake bars is similar to brownies. They are super-moist and very rich. You don’t have to use Blue Velvet cake mix for this recipe. Pretty much any cake mix will work.
- 1 box of Duncan Hines Blue Velvet cake mix (You can use pretty much any cake mix flavor)
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- ¼ cup milk
- Pre-heat oven to 350F
- Mix together the cake mix, egg and vegetable oil in a bowl.
- Add in the milk and mix until lumps are gone. Batter will be thick.
- Pour and smooth the batter in a greased 8X8 square pan.
- Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes until top crusts. (Center won't be firm)
- Let cake bars cool in pan for 30 minutes before cutting or frosting.
- Once cake bars are cooled, spoon on frosting.
- Store cake bars in the fridge.
