Cake Mix Dip for Dippers

Pat Duran


I made some vanilla cupcakes today and wanted to frost them with chocolate frosting , but had no cocoa or chocolate syrup, pudding, flavoring, sauce. What to do?
I did have a box of chocolate cake mix.
I looked to Bing and found this idea and tweaked it a bit.
So I added a bit of the dry cake mix to my powdered sugar mixture. and it turned out great. So what to do with the remaining cake mix. Make a creamy dip for some graham crackers or whatever. Hope you like this. You can use any cake mix flavor you like.
