There are some who feel it’s a little too early to start sharing pumpkin recipes. Well, my answer to that is MOAR pumpkin recipes, of course. Kudos to you if you get the reference, if not, just pretend I typed more. Now, let’s move on to the real reason you have decided to visit us.
If you follow our blog, then you know we love dips! They are easy to prepare, delicious to devour and encourage people to mingle at parties. Everyone crowds around a great party dip. It’s kind of like the old water cooler at the office. You can spend time chatting with friends while enjoying a great dish.
I’m not going to spend too much time going into the details for this recipe. I mean, it’s a pumpkin pie flavored party dip. The recipe and the pictures speak for themselves. This dish can be served as an appetizer or dessert as it’s not overly sweet.
Furthermore, the party dip has all the spices you would expect in pumpkin pie. From cinnamon to nutmeg and everything in between, this offering screams classic Thanksgiving pie. Additionally, I added ginger because that’s my little twist on a pumpkin pie spice.
I went ahead and included a link to my spice recipe just in case you are curious about its ingredients. In closing, I wanted to mention the video. You will probably notice we didn’t add the canned pumpkin to the party dip right away. There’s no particular reason, simply put, I forgot to prep it. However, we felt the video didn’t suffer as a result and decided to share it. Before I say goodbye, I want to wish you a long life, love everlasting, and a tummy full of spiced pumpkin.
