A Fall Favorite! Yummmmmm

As the leaves change colors

and the warm air turns crisp and cool

and we bring out our scarves and hats.......

I can't help but start to crave one of my Fall Favorites!

It's a Pumpkin Dip! mmmmmm it's sooo good and perfect for this time of year!

So i thought i would share this super duper easy recipe with you all!

Ok ready???

All you need is:
  • 1 can (16oz) of plain pumpkin (though you can use the pumpkin pie filling, but i find its loaded with stuff you just dont need)
  • 1 120z tub of cool whip ( i do the lite version)
  • 1 pkg of Vanilla Instant pudding mix
  • cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

sounds good so far right??

  • All you do is mix together the pumpkin and pudding mix together first. I usually only use half a pkg of pudding mix. i find it can be too sweet otherwise.
  • Then fold in the Cool Whip. Again its kind of to taste, but i usually only use about 3/4 the tub.
  • Sprinkle in Cinnamon and Nutmeg to taste. (i prefer more cinnamon....)
  • Let chill for at least an hour.
  • To serve, use Ginger Snaps! yummm ... or Graham Crackers!

♥ For a slight variation: use a pkg of Cheesecake Instant Pudding Mix instead of the Vanilla!

Soooooo good! Even my mom who doesnt care for pumpkin loved this!

Let me know if you try it!

What's your Fall Favorite???

wow looks really nummy :O)

My fall favorite is very simple.
Take one or two packages of any brand cream cheese, let set at room temp for a bit to soften, then start blending with milk until just smoother than chip dip, then add garlic powder and salt to taste. Here's the catch, you MUST use your fave reg chip to test for saltyness, otherwise you will end up with too much. I know I've done it. LOL My kids always LOVED this recipie.

Hi Miss Knits. What a cute post! I do indeed love pumpkin, but had never heard of a pumpkin dip. You're quite convincing when you mention ginger snaps.
