What is Shamrock Dunkaroo Dip?

Dunkaroo’s were a huge hit in the 90’s and they’ve made a little bit of a comeback lately.

It’s a creamy icing flavored dip that usually has some kind of rainbow sprinkles included and it usually comes in a little plastic kit that has two sections, one for little graham cracker cookies and one for the dip!

Dunkaroo dip is basically a replication of that flavor and texture so you can enjoy this creamy, sweet, indulgent treat anytime! I particularly like making this dip for parties and family gatherings because it’s always a hit and is super simple to whip up.

Can I make this with other sprinkles?

You can make this with any kind of sprinkles you like! Or you can totally leave the sprinkles out. I think they add a little bit of fun and whimsy to the recipe and a nice little texture, but feel free to leave them out if you don’t have any on hand.

Another option is to match the sprinkles to the theme of your party or gathering…or whichever holiday is coming up! You can make a rainbow variety with regular old rainbow jimmies if you want.

What do I need to make this tasty dip?

You will need just a few ingredients. You can find the full amount in the list in the recipe card at the bottom of this post. For your grocery list you’ll want to add some shamrock sprinkles (or whatever kind you like), a vanilla cake mix, cream cheese, milk, and whipped topping.

I also usually add a variety of plain cookies like Nilla wafers, along with some fresh fruit like strawberries or apples for dipping. If you want to get really crazy you can throw in some graham crackers or Teddy Graham’s!

Pretzels will be a nice salty and sweet type of flavor combo and they are super easy for dipping in this shamrock dunkaroo dip!

Kitchen Essentials for Cake Mix Recipes:

If you are trying to pick out some of the best supplies to stock your kitchen for cake mix recipes and baking in general, these are some of our favorites and must have items.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!
