How to make cake batter dip

Making cake batter dip is as easy as adding a few ingredients, mixing, and dipping!

First, a word about food safety. Some Duncan Hines  boxed cake mixes were recalled because of salmonella contamination. In the past, dry flour mixes have been recalled because of e. coli contamination.

So, before you use the boxed cake mix in this recipe, you’ll want to kill off any potentially problematic bacteria. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to do this. You just need to microwave the cake mix in a microwave safe bowl until it reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

To start, microwave the cake mix in a microwave safe bowl until the mixture reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don’t have a thermometer, microwave for one minute and 30 seconds on high, stirring at 15 second intervals, and being careful not to burn the mixture.

Then, add cake mix, cream cheese and whipped topping to a medium bowl.

Beat until smooth. We use a hand mixer as it makes this dip light and fluffy, but a whisk will work, too!

Add milk and cake batter flavoring and beat for 1 minute.

Add to a serving dish and add sprinkles! We used fun holiday sprinkles, but you can use any kind you like! You could make a cute funfetti cake batter dip with these Wilton rainbow sprinkles. Get them on Amazon now.
