Oh, and I guess some dippers like the ever popular animal crackers. Although, if you’re like me and ran 12 miles right before you whip this up, a simple spoon will do. 😉
But if you’re feeling ambitious and/or adventurous, I’ve got two other uses for your new & improved Funfetti dip…
First, we’ve got these mini Funfetti cupcakes. Once baked, fill them with Funfetti dip, then spread your favorite frosting on top (I used a simple vanilla pudding/Cool Whip frosting here).
But if mini cupcakes are too much work, you can always make a…
Yes, it is as good as it sounds. Perfect for celebrating once-every-four-years days like Leap Day!
