I’ve been on a copycat recipe making spree.
With the pandemic, I haven’t gotten out much. I don’t go out to eat, I rarely order takeout, and I limit my grocery shopping trips. Because of all that, I’ve been trying to recreate my favorite restaurant recipes at home. So far, I’ve attempted recipes from several chains (Piccadilly, Cheddar’s, Cracker Barrel) and some local restaurants that I adore as well.
This is my first venture into the copycat grocery store item.
I used to be obsessed with dunkaroos when I was a kid. They disappeared from store shelves in the early 2000’s, but I could still find them up until high school at Dollar General stores.
They’ve been gone for several years now, much to my dismay.
Recently, though, they’ve made a comeback. You can find them at some 7-11 stores. I haven’t been able to get my hands on them, though, so I decided I’d just make them myself.
This recipe is pretty straightforward and self-explanatory. I know you’re not supposed to eat raw cake mix, but I’ve had a ton of these little cups of dunkaroo dip and have been fine. It’s such a lovely flavor mixed in with the yogurt and whipped cream.
Don’t make your own graham crackers. Just use Teddy Grahams! They work beautifully with this knockoff dunkaroo dip.
