Let’s be real for a second. Every self-respecting ’90s kid ate Dunkaroos purely for the icing. Yeah, you got a nice, small stack of cinnamon cookies, but they merely served as a tool to scoop up the glorious funfetti frosting that can only be described as the childhood version of crack. Dunkaroos were a staple in the average ’90s kid’s diet, alongside other nutrient-packed superfoods like Gushers, Air Heads, and processed cheese that came out of a spray can.

Even though it is somehow already 2016, which is scary, the ’90s will never die thanks to this recipe. These quick and easy cinnamon sugar donuts are generously filled with the Dunkaroo funfetti dip that once ran through your very veins. There’s no need to take out your Easy-Bake Oven for this one; the dip itself requires only three ingredients, and all you have to do is stir them together. It’s so easy that you legitimately could have made it when you were an actual child in the ’90s. But no matter. Write this recipe in your Lisa Frank notebook and whip up these Dunkaroo Donut Bombs for a truly delicious blast from the past.

    Mix that all together to unlock your childhood dreams.

    Note that this recipe leaves you with a lot of Dunkaroo dip, so you can double up on the biscuit dough, cinnamon and sugar to make more donuts. Ooooor just scoop up the remaining dip with graham crackers, a spoon, or even your donuts for an endless amount of sugary #nostalgia.

  • Step 9

    Place the dough ball into oil that has been heated under a low to medium flame. Let cook for four minutes total, flipping the donut every minute. You can cook several donuts at a time.

    #SpoonTip: Keep the dough balls in the fridge while the oil heats up for best results.
