The cookie is the vessel by which the silky smooth frosting is delivered to your mouth. Choose wisely. We recommend a simple vanilla wafer or graham cracker.

The kangaroo shape might not have affected the flavor, but it surely added to the Dunkaroos mystique. Choose your favorite animal-shaped cookie cutter to make this snack your own.

Dunkaroos basic vanilla or chocolate is simple enough to reproduce with an easy-to-make buttercream. For a twist on the classic, experiment with other flavored frostings, like cream cheese or peanut butter varieties.

Adding sprinkles to frosting is a classic Dunkaroos pairing, but dress up your favorite buttercream by folding in chocolate chips, butterscotch, or your favorite nut.
