I am so excited to add this fun treat to my Christmas collection of posts today!  Not only does this dip taste delicious (it’s similar to the other cake-mix-based dunkaroo dips that I have shared in the past!) but doesn’t it look absolutely FABULOUS?!

The color of this dip is a bright green (which you can of course make lighter or darker depending on how much coloring you use). As soon as I finished mixing this dip, the first thought that came to my mind was that cranky old Grinch from How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss. You can see some red accents in the sprinkles and strawberries to make it even more Grinch-themed. (Or these heart shaped sprinkles would look amazing as well!)

Of course, you can skip the Grinch references altogether if that’s not your jam!  You can simply hone in on the holiday colors and that can be that.  Up to you!

Grinch Dip Ingredients

We used a tin of holiday cookies and some fresh strawberries for our “dunkable” foods. Nilla Wafer cookies would also taste great. I’m sure there are many other tasty options out there. Feel free to drop us a comment and let us know what you love to use!

Note: if you are concerned about the possible E. coli risk from cake mix, spread the mix out on a baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes at 350°F (or until the mix has an internal temperature of 160-165°F. Let the cake mix cool and then add it to your dip.

Let’s get to it!  Time to make some Grinch Dip!
