For the fall edition of the challenge, I decided to try a new autumny recipe. And boy, I’m glad I did. It will definitely be in my holiday rotation from now on. I pinned this pumpkin dip recipe several weeks ago from the blog Carolina Charm. It is so easy and fast to make, and delicious to boot. Five ingredients and dippers. That’s all you need.
16 oz. container of whipped topping
15 oz can of pumpkin puree
5 oz package of vanilla pudding mix
1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
Things to dip: graham crackers, Nilla wafers, apple slices, whatever you like
Gotta love my dear husband for being thrifty and going with the store brand.
Let the whipped topping soften a little so it’s easy to stir and not too firm in the middle. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Don’t make the pudding, you just need the mix.
Then you whip it. Whip it real good. Either with a mixer or by hand.
Spoon your dip into a serving bowl and cover, then put it in the fridge to chill for a little while. After it’s had a chance to set for a bit, take it out and dig, or dip, in.
Isn’t that gorgeous? This dip is a little sweet, a little spicy, so smooth and creamy, and healthy, you know, because of the pumpkin! It is great as both an appetizer and a dessert. Or just straight off a spoon right before bed. This is one of my new favorite recipes and I am confident that it will be a big hit this holiday season.
Did you participate in the fall Pinterest challenge? I’d love to see what you’ve been working on!
