Don't throw away your Halloween pumpkin yet - turn it into a creative container to hold your dip instead. I served this pumpkin dip inside of a hallowed out pumpkin at my Halloween party yesterday. This recipe was posted on pinterest by allreicpes.com. It was a big hit at my party and for those of you who requested the recipe - here it is.
Fold together 1 (8 oz) container of cool whip, 1 (3 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding, 1 cup pumpkin and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice.
My dip still had some white streaks - better to undermix than overmix this dip.
Serve dip inside of a hollowed out pumpkin.
I served cinnamon and honey graham sticks alongside the dip - for dipping of course.
It would also be good with apple slices or fresh strawberries.
You could certainly use this pumpkin container for any kind of dip that you like. If you don't want your dip to taste like pumpkin, cut the opening so that you can fit a small bowl inside of the pumpkin. This would be a great, eye-catching way to serve vegetable dip and fresh veggies.
