Red Velvet Cake Batter Dip

Hey look!  I found something festive you can make for my most favorite holiday of all...

Valentines Day!  Yay.

Okay, I admit to the sarcasm if you didn't catch it.  Maybe you celebrate Valentines Day with gusto.  I however, tend to be the scrooge of Valentines.  With a big eye roll at all the pink and hearts.  The sappy poems and the PDA.

It's not that I don't appreciate romance.  I just appreciate it more on a day when people aren't reminded that they're supposed to be romantic.

You give me flowers and a sweet card on any random day?  Come get some sugar!

I'm looking at you, husband.

And I have plenty of sugar to give.  Just look at this delicious dip I'm sharing with you:

Cookie Mama's Notes:
* Make sure you use unprepared cake mix- the powder before you add the egg and oil!
* You can increase the powdered sugar if you want a sweeter dip- I don't think it's necessary.
* You can also decrease the milk for a thicker dip.  I think it's just right the way it is!
* The batter will be red without food coloring.  I added for more red punch.
* If you chill it, it will be harder to scoop, make sure you have sturdy dippers!
* Refrigerate what you don't eat.
* I should point out, I'm not normally a fan of Red Velvet.  The cake is weird. But trust me when I say this is good; my red stained lips don't lie.

- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 c. salted butter, softened
- 2 c. Red Velvet Cake Mix
- 2. c. powdered sugar
- 4 Tbsp. milk
- 2-3 drops red food coloring (optional)

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and cream cheese until smooth.  With mixer on low, add cake mix 1 cup at a time.  Increase speed and blend.

Add food coloring to milk.  With mixer on low add half the milk to cake batter mix.  Increase speed and blend until milk is incorporated.

On low, add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.  Add remaining milk and blend on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy.

Chill it before serving or eat right away!

Serve with graham crackers and assorted cookies-use your imagination!  My husband thought Oreos, and I thought it would be too sweet, but it was yummy!  Golden Oreos would be good too.





And if you're having trouble getting into the romantic mood, watch The Notebook.  Or maybe not.  I generally end up in a wheeping pile of emotional mess, wondering why my husband doesn't love me like Ryan Gosling loves Rachel McAdams.

Or you could just watch something with Ryan Gosling.  Like this:

Quiet Ryan - watch more funny videos


You're welcome.

  3. How much would you say this would serve? I'm heading to a Christmas party this weekend and planned to switch out the valentine sprinkles for Christmas ones but there's going to be about 25 people. Double you think?

    1. I would double it. This is a yummy dip and I'm sure people will go back for more! However, if there are lots and lots of other goodies there, you may have leftovers. But worse things can happen! ;)

  5. Yes, you'll want to refrigerate it before serving or eat immediately.
