Im a sucker for dips. So here it goes:
Recipe for Pumpkin Pie Dip:
- One box of Vanilla Pudding Mix
- One tub of Cool Whip
- Can of Puree pumpkin
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
I bought the ingredients on monday for the party on friday, and decided to mix the ingredients early, that way it REALLY had a chance to soak up the flavors, you know dips are always better when you let the sit for a while.
The recipe called for pumpkin pie spice, but why waste the money for pumpkin pie spice, when you have a full spice cabinet? Heres how I made my pumpkin spice:
Pumpkin Pie Spice
- All spice
I guessed on mine, and just added a little bit of everything, but if you’d like one to store in your cabinet heres the measurements:
- 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons nutmeg
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground allspice
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground cloves
So I mixed one box of vanilla pudding, and my home made pumpkin pie spice and added it to a tub of cool whip. I placed the cool whip back in the freezer for the week- to be used later when I needed it.
I grabbed a pumpkin and hallowed it out, (kept and cooked the seeds yummy paleo snack).
Thawed out the frozen previously made cool whip and added the can of pureed pumpkin. I threw it all in the hallowed out pumpkin and looked super cute!
This dip was super easy to make and I enjoyed it because it didn’t have cream cheese, or sour cream or too many ingredients like other dips call for. It was just a nice light pumpkin dip and everyone really enjoyed it!
