Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip

Happy last Sunday in September! I’m super excited for October. October to me is the month of cozy foods, getting together more with friends, and fun moments of hosting.

When it comes to gratitude, my goodness, do we have so much to be thankful for!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip

Just in time for fall hosting, prepare a small pumpkin, by scooping out the insides, and fill with a Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip!

This pumpkin dip has tons of “pumpkin-y” flavor, and it’s fluffy and light and great for dipping! And it only takes minutes to make!

Let’s get started …

BEST Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip

Preparation for making pumpkin dip

This is the perfect recipe to make if you’re already cooking or baking with canned pumpkin! If you’re like me, you sometimes don’t use the entire can, and you hate to toss it. 

  1. Before you start making the dip, about an hour before, remove the cream cheese from the fridge to soften.
  2. You can also prepare the mini pumpkin for the dip.

How to scoop out a small pumpkin

Use a sharp knife to cut the top of the pumpkin (stem part) off, to make a lid.

Using a small melon baller (or scoop), scrape out the insides and discard.

How to make pumpkin pie dip

Beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar with an electric mixer, or stand mixer, until smooth and creamy. Then mix in the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice and set aside.

Whip the heavy whipping cream. Add the vanilla and caramel sauce, and gently stir.

Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Mix together and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Love in action

I like to think that people are grateful when they are invited into our home (I know that we are, when we get a dinner invite), because it shows love in action, a spirit of kindness, that we would extend ourselves and cook a meal, share our space, and want to know people who we chit-chat with at church, or in our neighborhood, in a deeper way.

The spirit of kindness is real, it’s action.

How to serve Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip

Here are some great ways to serve this dip, and host in October!

Serve with:

  • apples
  • pretzels
  • cookies
  • biscotti
  • fresh fruit

With a spirit of kindness in mind, how about making some delicious drinks, serving this dip with fruits and snacks? Make a big pot of chili, having your guests bring the bread, and then pulling out of the oven these caramel rolls or THIS festive cake.

I also think this pumpkin cream cheese dip would work well as a no-bake mousse in a graham cracker pie crust as well! YUM!

Happy hosting!
