Red, White, and Blue Cake Batter Dip by Sugar and Soul

This recipe immediately brought my back to Dunkaroo days (although the portion size of this dip is WAY more realistic). This is super simple and easy to put in the middle of a fruit platter for a pop of color.

This Cake Batter Dip is made with just 4 ingredients and is ready in just 5 minutes! Change the sprinkles colors to customize it for any occasion like birthdays, graduations, the 4th of July!
