To make it safe to eat raw cake mix, we heat the cake mix in the microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. This allows for flour to heat which makes it safe to eat this delicious dip.

Grinch Dip Tips:

  • Cream Cheese – Make sure cream is softened to room temperature before mixing with the other ingredients. It will also make the texture smooth and creamy.
  • Mixing Ingredients – We recommend using a hand mixer or stand mixer to combine the cream cheese and whip topping for best results.
  • Milk – You can use any type of milk when mixing the ingredients.
  • Sprinkles – If you can’t find the red heart sprinkles, red sprinkles will work great.

How Long does dip last:

We recommend serving this dish within about 2-3 days. Make sure to not leave on the counter to long and keep in the fridge when not serving.
