This past weekend I went to a high school friend’s bachelorette party and was in charge of coming up with the menu and food for the brunch portion of the party. Since we are entering fall and I know a lot of people love anything that involves pumpkin I decided that one of the things I would make is Pumpkin Dip. I had a hunch that everyone would like it and I was right!
I think it was one of most popular things at the brunch.
Pumpkin dip is a great snack or appetizer for a group. I served it with cut up apple slices but you could use a variety of dippers including other fruit (maybe bananas), cinnamon pita chips or even vanilla wafers (a friend gave me that great idea!). You might think you will only take a few scoops of this dip but I guarantee that you will be back for seconds!
This dip only takes a few easy ingredients (pumpkin puree, low-fat cream cheese, brown sugar, maple syrup and cinnamon) and a couple minutes of mixing in the mixer and you have a party-ready dip!
- 6 ounces ⅓ less-fat cream cheese, softened
- ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
- ½ cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
- ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
- Combine the first three ingredients in a mixer on medium until well combined.
- Add the syrup, cinnamon and continue to beat until smooth
- Cover and chill for at least 20 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve with apple slices, cinnamon pita chips, vanilla wafers or other fruit slices.
