I simply cannot believe that my very first baby is turning 5 today. In honor of my sweet little guys birthday I wanted to share with you a super simple recipe that he LOVES!
This was a fun recipe that I found on Pinterest via Tasty Kitchen . The very first time I made this we were all head over heels for it. It is so quick and easy to throw together and makes a great treat for any occasion. My son and husband especially couldn’t get enough of it. It makes a pretty good amount of dip, so I usually take one batch to a function and freeze the other half for another special occasion. Then when I need a quick treat I can pull it out of the freezer and thaw it and I have an instant crowd pleaser. I was worried that it wouldn’t freeze well because of the yogurt so I did a little research, and found out that it was a-OK to freeze yogurt. After freezing it tasted great. The original recipe says you can use any type of cake mix, but I really love the flavor that the party rainbow chip cake from Betty Crocker gave the dip. It also already has little colorful sprinkles in the mix, so no need to add any to the dip. It is a great alternative since the color runs if you add sprinkles after and refrigerate it . I just top the dip with a few extra sprinkles before I serve it!
- 1 Box Betty Crocker Party Rainbow Chip Cake mix
- 1 1/2 C. Plain Yogurt
- 2 C. Cool Whip
- Stir first two ingredients together in a large bowl until combined. Fold in Cool Whip. Chill for at least one hour. Cover dip with sprinkles before serving. Stores in the refrigerator for 3 days and can be frozen.
Since the birthday boy is in charge of providing the snack for his preschool class today I let him choose what he wanted to take, and lucky me, he decided he wanted cake dip! We made a quick batch together and then put a couple spoonfuls into little containers so each child had their own little helping. We filled clear plastic party cups with animal crackers and put the cake dip on top. We added the treat to a little bag with a raffia bow and were done. I thought this would make it easier for the teachers to hand out to the kids and a super special birthday treat for Kyle to share with his friends at school.
I am so happy to have made this fun treat with my little guy to celebrate his 5th birthday. He has made every single day of the last 5 years of my life the most amazing yet, and has moved me beyond words with his kind heart and precious smile.
