Dunkaroos Have Returned!

In basically every “You know you are a 90’s kid if…” list you find the infamous dunkaroo snack. There is no explaining why these graham crackers dipped in a cake frosting substance captured our 12 year old hearts but they certainly did. If I opened my lunch to find one of these amazing snacks my whole day would be just a little brighter.

Sadly, I have been unable to find these snacks in the last few years. Doing some internet research I find that they are still sold in select stores but they have yet to cross my path. Desperate for a dunkaroo fix to bring me back to my childhood years I went to Pinterest. Low and Behold a recipe awaited me to make this fantastic snack right at home. And whats better? Its only three ingredients!

This recipe didnt give exact portions for a large batch so it was kind of a trial and error type thing. We started with the three ingredients lined up and ready to go:

All three ingredients!

All three ingredients!

Then we put them all together in a bowl and mixed them up:

After we stirred for a bit with a spoon we decided the consistency just wasn’t quite right. The main site gave little direction for this so we decided to try blending the ingredients:

Blend it up!

This did the trick! The dip worked out just perfectly! Brought me right back to my days in grade school. The last thing to figure out was what to dip in it. After some debate we settled on Honey Flavored Teddy Grahams 🙂

Yum!

Yum!

And there you have it! A quick and easy snack the whole family will love!

So bloggers is there a snack from your childhood you would like to re-create?

Cake Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches!

After a little hiatus I have decided to return to this blog with some focus. Instead of running a random blog I have decided to run a blog focused on the home. Ideas for you to do, to eat, and to watch. With a new header comes a new chapter for this blog and I am excited to get started. I plan to do some interview with up and coming artists looking to bring some entertainment to the home, share some exciting new recipes, and share some DIY projects. Come back to the blog every Monday and Friday to see whats next!

For my first post back I decided to share an awesome recipe we ran across on Pinterest. This recipe is for Cake Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches. The original recipe can be found here: http://www.cometogetherkids.com/2011/07/cake-ice-cream-sandwiches.html.

1) Make the cake batter according to the box- be sure buy all the ingredients for the cake mix you chose!!

2) Pour the cake batter CAREFULLY into the waffle maker- we learned the hard way…

4) Place the ice cream of your choice between two waffles and viola! You have made Cake Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches!
