Easy Holiday Snack: Pumpkin Spice Dip Recipe
It can be loads of fun having holiday guests but it can also be stressful. Unless you and your guests eat out three times a day, you’re going to have to cook or at least prepare a snack. Whether it’s Fall or Winter, this Pumpkin Spice Dip is my one of my tried and true favorite snacks to serve. It takes less than ten minutes to prepare and guests can easily serve themselves.
For this recipe, you will need the following:
- 8 oz cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
- 1 cup of LIBBY’S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
- 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
- 8 oz container of whipped topping
- 1/2 cup of NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels (semi-sweet)
- package of graham crackers
I picked up my ingredients at my local Dollar General because a) my local store is less than 5 minutes away b) it’s easy to get in and out of the store c) their prices are competitive and d) I can use digital coupons.
After creating an account on Dollar General’s website, I was able to save $5.50 on the following purchases:
NESCAFÉ® TASTER’S CHOICE® Instant Coffee
NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Liquid Coffee Creamer
DIGIORNO® RISING CRUST® Pizza
NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels
Pizza is a great item to have on hand when you have guests. Add a salad, chicken wings, or garlic sticks and you have an easy meal on hand. In addition, I always stock up on coffee creamer whenever I find a great price because it’s an item I use daily. I like buying this particular creamer from Dollar General because it does not need to be refrigerated until you open it.
If you don’t have the ingredients you need for Pumpkin Spice Dip, at least you know you can find them at Dollar General and save money in the process. Now, let’s get to work!
In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth.
Add the pure pumpkin, powdered sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice to the cream cheese. Mix together until smooth and blended.
Fold in the whipped topping and then add the semi-sweet morsels.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
Next, separate the graham cracker sheets into smaller rectangles. This will make them easier to use and eat.
Finally, serve the Pumpkin Spice Dip in a large bowl or transfer it to smaller serving containers (like jelly jars, etc.,). I used the Depression-era glasses my mother passed down to me.
Garnish with additional semi-sweet morsels, a dash of pumpkin pie spice, and graham crackers.
It wouldn’t be complete without a hot cup of coffee and some delicious creamer. At least it wouldn’t be for me. 😉
Do you think it’s okay to eat this for breakfast??
If my guests request it for breakfast, I may have to sacrifice for them. Instead of graham crackers, we’ll dip apple slices. 😉
