What You Need To Make Pumpkin Dip

The kitchen tools you will need to make pumpkin cheesecake dip are:

  • An Electric Hand or Stand Mixer
  • A Large Spoon- I usually just use a large kitchen spoon. 
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons
  • A Large Bowl- Any large bowl will do! Just make sure it is large enough to accommodate all of the ingredients. 
  • Serving Tray This is great if you are wanting to serve this pumpkin dip at a party. A platter helps display the dip and dippers all together. This is completely optional and you could just eat the pumpkin dip strait out of the bowl!

The ingredients you will need to make pumpkin pie dip are: 

  • Cool Whip or Whipped Topping- It can be off brand or name brand, either way the pumpkin dip will be great!
  • Brown Sugar
  • Canned Pumpkin Puree
  • Cream Cheese
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice– I like to use my Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice, but you can use a store bought one as well!

Note: Make sure you are getting canned pumpkin for this pumpkin cheesecake dip, NOT pumpkin pie filling.

How Do You Make Pumpkin Cheesecake Dessert Dip

This pumpkin cheesecake dip recipe is so, so SIMPLE! I am obsessed with desserts that come together quickly with little effort and are delicious. This no bake pumpkin dip requires zero baking and only needs a few ingredients and kitchen tools.

Making Pumpkin Dip 

  1. Place softened cream cheese and whipped topping in a large bowl. Using a hand or stand mixer, whip them together until creamy. 
  2. Add in the canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and brown sugar. Continue to whip the ingredients together until combined and fluffy. 
  3. Enjoy the pumpkin cheesecake dip immediately with suggested dippers or store in the fridge for later.

What to Serve with No-Bake Pumpkin Dip

I love going with more dessert themed dippers for this pumpkin dip. You can of course go rogue and try whatever you wish, but if you want some direction here are my ultimate favorites!

  • Vanilla Wafers
  • Graham Crackers
  • Animal Crackers
  • Apple Slices
  • Gingersnap Cookies
  • Pretzels

Also, if you were curious, the winner for family favorite in my house and the ONE dipper that has to be present with this pumpkin cheesecake dip is the vanilla wafers. Seriously, the pumpkin dip and wafer combo is a match made in heaven. 10/10 do recommend. 

How to Store Leftover Dessert Dip

Store leftover pumpkin cheesecake dip in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. I like use my glass Pyrex containers. When ready to eat you can enjoy the pumpkin dip strait from the fridge, or let the dessert pumpkin dip come to room temperature for 5-10 minutes so it isn’t as firm. 

I DO NOT recommend freezing this pumpkin dip recipe. The cream cheese will do some weird stuff and the texture will not be as good. This pumpkin cheesecake dip is super quick to make, therefore it is easy to just make on the fly when you would like to have it.
