The flowers are in bloom and the birds are singing! Spring is nearly here and with that comes bright flavors and colorful recipes like this delicious dip. With a few simple ingredients, you’ll be sunny days, spring showers and Easter Sunday ready!
Cake batter anything is one of my favorite flavors. You name it, cake batter ice cream, truffles, cereal, macaron, candy, I’m in! That last of the cake batter left in a mixing bowl is gold. One day as I was enjoying a scoop of my favorite Blue Bell Confetti Cake ice cream, I had the idea of creating a cake batter dip loaded with sprinkles!
My mom makes a yummy fruit dip that combines cream cheese and marshmallow fluff. With that in mind. I wanted to create a similar look and feel, and after just a couple trials, I found the perfect combination of flavors.
I love the texture, tartness and protein addition of vanilla Skyr or Greek yogurt in this dip. Reduced-fat cream cheese lends a cohesion that the dip needs with less fat and calories. The rest of the ingredients I used regular versions of, but there are lower calorie and lower fat whipped toppings that can be used. Another healthy bonus, fresh fruit pairs perfectly with this dip! It’s delicious to the last dollop!
You'll love this cake batter sprinkle dip for so many reasons! It's colorful, creamy, and calorie-free...well...not that last one! At least there are some substitute options that lighten its overall fat and calorie amount. It's yummy enough to eat with a spoon, but you'll have fun getting creative with dippers to serve on the side.

How to Make Cake Batter Sprinkle Dip

Tips and Substitutions
- Skyr is strained whole milk yogurt. Siggi’s is the brand I prefer because I like its balance of tartness and sweetness. Any regular or low-fat vanilla Greek or regular yogurt can work in this dip. It will slightly change the texture and the level of sweetness
- Get creative with dippers! I made this geared towards celebrating Easter, but you can easily adapt it to any holiday or festivity by changing up the sprinkles and dippers. Here are my go-to accouterments:
- Fresh Fruit (berries, grapes, apples, bananas, peaches)
- Honey Graham Crackers
- Chocolate Graham Crackers
- Animal Crackers
- Vanilla Wafers
- Funfetti Cookies
- If you don't want to use the cake mix straight from the box to the dip, you can spread it out on a sheet pan in an even layer and bake at 350°F. for 5 minutes.
- Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
- This dip doesn’t freeze and thaw well due to the varying dairy components.
