Funfetti Cake Batter Dip

You know when you see a recipe, and say to yourself, “Oh my goodness, I NEED to make that TONIGHT,” but then you never actually do? No?? Well, maybe it’s just me.

So, I did what any crazed, sweet tooth driven person would do, hit up the grocery store on my way home from work, and whipped this up before I could even change out of my work clothes. And, I am not sorry about it! Not one bit. This was wonderful, and it’s made with nonfat yogurt and fat-free cool whip, so it’s practically health food right? Anyone still with me?
