HOW TO MAKE THIS PUMPKIN DIP RECIPE

PRO TIP:

This sweet dip can be made ahead of time. Just leave off any toppings such as whipped cream until you are ready to serve.

STEP ONE: Using a medium-sized mixing bowl and an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the softened cream cheese for 1 minute until smooth. Use a silicone spatula to scrape down the sides.

PRO TIP:

Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t have any lumps in your dip.

STEP TWO: Lower the mixer speed to low and add the canned pumpkin puree, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Increase the mixer speed to medium and continue mixing for 1 minute, then scrape down the sides of the bowl.

STEP THREE: Lower the mixer speed to low, add the pumpkin pie spice, ground cinnamon, and ground ginger. Increase the speed to medium and mix for a further 30 seconds.

STEP FOUR: Tightly cover the pumpkin dip and let the dip chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.

HOW TO SERVE

The fluffy dip can be served using a small serving bowl in a hollowed-out pumpkin. Add a scoop of Cool Whip on top of the dip and a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra fancy presentation.

You can serve the dip with gingersnap cookies, vanilla wafers, graham crackers, pretzel sticks, apple slices, pear slices, or even pretzel thins.

This easy dip would be a great idea for an after-school snack. It’s a fun way to get your kiddos to eat a little bit of fruit while satisfying their sweet tooth.

This dip is also a great option for Halloween parties or another fall gathering. Serve a scoop of the dip in individual small bowls for a playdate and it will be a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftovers of this creamy dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
