Dunkaroo Rum Shake

Long before funfetti-everything took over Pinterest, Dunkaroos was giving kids direct access to the addictive rainbow frosting in the form of sugary snack packs. Sadly, the soulless execs at General Mills discontinued this ‘90s lunchbox staple in the U.S. in 2012. So we revived the dippable dessert as an extra-thick vanilla milkshake, served with cookies for dunking and spiked with rum for grownup enjoyment. While Dunkaroos can still be smuggled in from Canada, feel free to use any funfetti frosting for the garnish. The result will still be an undeniably delicious after-work indulgence.
