Dunkaroos

Do you guys know what Dunkaroos are? It is a packaged snack / dessert that contains dessert-like crackers with a frosting- either vanilla or chocolate frosting, and I used to LOVE that frosting- the chocolate was good, but the white was just out of this world. So I looked it up and it seems that the frosting ingredients are vegan- but the crackers have honey! So my question is, do you guys who are familiar with this product know of any other frosting products, or even recipes, that taste similar? Thank you!

Ah, Dunkaroos! I remember begging my mom for them when I was a kid! According to a variety of sources, this should do the trick:
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 T milk (substitute)
1/4 tsp. Vanilla extract
Sprinkles

There are other recipes out there that I'm sure are delicious (a number of them call for funfetti cake mix, which I'm not sure is vegan- you are supposed to mix it with yogurt and cool whip, and by the time you'd made all the vegan substitutions, I'm not sure it would be very good).

You can also always go the easy route and buy Duncan Hines vanilla frosting, which is usually vegan.

I used to eat that stuff out of the can. I love the vanilla. And if you refrigerate it, the chocolate tastes like fudge.

The OP was saying the frosting was vegan but the cookie had honey!

I remember buying a can of chocolate fudge frosting and putting it in the freezer. I'd have a spoonful as is and it was just like fudge! I can't find it without transfat though, thats why it went in the freezer

I have discovered many more packaged cookies seem vegan (barring of course the undetermined sugar) Aldi chocolate chip - the Benton brand- are vegan and probably the best packaged chocolate chip cookies I've had. Many off brand sandwich cookie I saw at Dollar Tree looked vegan

Anyone remember which graham crackers are vegan? What about vanilla wafers? I think most of those are

Theres a product I haven't heard of in atleast 15yrs! Although I would only get to enjoy them over friends or family's houses since my mother wouldn't buy sugary stuff like that for snacks

I believe Nabisco's regular/plain ones are vegan but I'm pretty sure the other flavors of them atleast contain honey. Sounds like vanilla frosting and graham crackers could be added to this week's food shopping list for homemade dunkaroos!

I've done this! Frosting + organic vegan chocolate teddy graham rip-offs = heaven! I felt like I was 8 again.
