Skinny Funfetti Cake Dip

I wanted to make a lighter dip for our New Year’s Eve Party and had two recipes that I couldn’t decide between so I just made both.  The first was a healthy cookie dough dip.  I was skeptical when I saw it was made with blended chickpeas (seriously, what was I thinking?) but gave it a try anyway.  
I literally almost gagged when I tried it.  It tasted like hummus with some peanut butter and chocolate chips mixed in.  Bleh.  Before I tossed it out I figured I’d let my husband try it and YOU GUYS,  he actually liked it!  And then I told him it was healthy and he went and ate the entire thing of it (over the course of a few days).  Then again, he’s never been a picky eater and he’s a health nut so ate it right up. 
But this skinny funfetti dip on the other hand, I loved.  And so did my husband.  And so did our friends (right friends?).   
I should’ve known Funfetti was the way to go, as long as it tastes like cake batter I don’t think you can go wrong.  I saw this over Eat Yourself Skinny and had to give it a try.  I love all of Kelly’s skinny recipes:) 
This stuff is thick, creamy, and oh so cake-battery.  And only requires three ingredients:  Funfetti cake mix, plain nonfat yogurt, and light cool whip.  
Then just dip your way through it with some low fat vanilla wafers or graham crackers, or pretzels, or a spoon. 
I’ll chunky dunk my way through this skinny dip any day!

    YESSSSS!!! I love dips. Can’t wait to try this version and avoid the healthy other dip. GAG

  2. Skinny Funfetti Dip are three words that I need in my life right now. skinny recipes of any kind, funfetti EVERYTHING, and I’m a suck for any kind of dip. this is right up my alley Kristy!! I’m pretty sure everything is better with sprinkles. Chunky dunk- yes!

  3. Oh, I have to try this soon! I love dessert dips!

      The Dip is Awesome! Also good with Animal Crackers!!!

  4. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust January 8, 2013

    I love this! I need to make some skinny dips. Then when I eat the whole thing I’m not upset, lol. And I’m with you…the chickpea thing freaks me out a little…

    Simple and looks fabulous !

  6. Deborah January 9, 2013

    Yeah – chickpeas don’t belong in a dessert in my opinion! But this – I’m sure I’d love it!

  7. Natalie January 15, 2013

    recently made this, and loooooved it!

    ps. good to know about the chickpeas, I’ve seen that before and wondered!

    • Kristy Denney January 15, 2013

      i’m so glad you liked it!!

      • Danah March 2, 2015

        could I use plain greek yogurt?

        • Kristy March 3, 2015

          Yes, absolutely!

  8. Cary B. February 1, 2013

    Can’t wait to make this for Super Bowl on Sunday! And another *agree* on the chickpeas. The ‘healthy peanut butter fudge’ I recently made with chickpeas was awful!! :( This, on the other hand, looks fabulous!!!

  9. Anonymous February 6, 2013

    I also made the chickpea dip recently and had the same experience. I just kept adding brown sugar until it tasted good! But that probably took away from its “healthy” status. :)

  10. Molly Tobias February 15, 2013

    I’ve made this dip and it is super tasty! I’ve seen the recipe for the chick pea dip and wondered how it would be…I make chocolate chip cookies that have whole chick peas in them and my family really likes them. Good luck on bringing more chick peas into your desserts :)

  11. jhays84 February 24, 2013

    Just made this! Its wonderful!

    • Kristy Denney February 24, 2013

      Glad you liked it!! thanks for taking the time to tell me:)

    I made this and really liked it. My faux pas was that I used nonfat vanilla yogurt instead, thinking it would be tastier. It made it super sweet. So the plain is definitely the way to go.

    Incidentally, I liked the cookie dough dip I tried a while back, but it is off-putting when you KNOW its chickpeas. I think if someone gave it to me and I didn’t know, I would really like it.

  13. Latoria Green March 22, 2013

    This looks yummy, but how is this a skinny dip when it has a whole box of cake mix in it?

    • Kristy March 22, 2013

      Well, it’s “skinnier” than what it could be….that’s all really!

    • celia husmann June 17, 2013

      Totally agree. It’s def not a “clean” dip that’s for sure…

      • Kristy June 17, 2013

        It’s just a lighter calorie cake batter dip…i know it’s not really healthy or “clean” and I didn’t mean to portray it as such. But some people do like lighter calorie recipes like these.

  14. nicole March 26, 2013

    I make mine with greek yogurt and I add in cream cheese. I really just make the dip to my tastes I don’t measure anything.

  16. Ashley April 14, 2013

    Made this last night (thanks to Pinterest for the find). Delicious!! Can’t believe how light it is looking at the calories of all the ingredients! Pretzels were a great dipper :)

  17. Daphne April 21, 2013

    I haven’t made this, but want to! Would it be good with low fat vanilla yogurt? Or should I stick to plain? Does the cake mix add enough sweetness and flavor?

    • Kristy April 21, 2013

      Yeah the cake mix adds enough sweetness, I think at least! And you can use low fat vanilla yogurt, it would probably taste even better!

  18. Cait April 22, 2013

    So good! I used animal crackers and decided to try sandwich-ing and then freezing them, everyone loved the cool treats!

  19. The Captain's Wife April 30, 2013

    Boxed cake mix contains raw flour which carries the same risks as raw eggs (salmonella). You’re doing your visitors no favors.

      BOOOO…Debbie Downer…

  20. Sheila May 24, 2013

    Hi! This looks delicious, and I can’t wait to try it, but I was wondering on what the shelf life might be for it, as in, do you make it right before serving, or is it something I can put in a jar as a gift as long as it stays refrigerated?

    • Kristy May 25, 2013

      We refrigerated it for a few hours before serving and kept it in the fridge for a couple of days in an airtight container and it’s great!

  22. Question May 31, 2013

    What would you substitute if you don’t like yogurt or do you think it would be fine without it?

  23. Rachel June 6, 2013

    I got vanilla yogurt, do you think wil be ok or too vanilla-y?

  24. katie June 17, 2013

    This is good for special occasions like a kids birthday, but it is definately far from ‘skinny’. Especially with pro essed cake mix….

    Oh my goodness this is amazing! I made this instead of a funfetti cheese ball to try to stick to weight watchers during a cookout where I will have little control (2 points per ounce for this one!)…my husband, who used to eat cans of frosting in college but is now a super health nut, said this tastes exactly like frosting you could use on a cake! Thank you for sharing this recipe with the world!!!

  30. Amanda September 7, 2013

    If you really want it to taste like cake batter try adding 1tsp vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp almond extract.
