In school, everyone loved the daily break in the lunchroom. So if you’re going to throw a flashback shindig, you must bring back the cafeteria classics! Create your own version of these time-tested treats, provide lunch trays for your guests, and let them load up on all their faves from back in the day.
- 1 box Funfetti® cake mix
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- ½ (8 ounces) tub whipped topping
- Animal crackers or Teddy Grahams
- In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, yogurt, and whipped topping until it’s completely combined and there are no more lumps.
- Cover with plastic wrap, and allow to chill in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.
- Remove from refrigerator when guests arrive, garnish with sprinkles, and serve with animal crackers or Teddy Grahams.
