Cream Cheese Pumpkin Dip is a creamy dessert dip perfect for the Fall holidays. Dip with gingersnaps, pretzels, and vanilla wafers.

One thing that sets this recipe apart from other pumpkin dip recipes is that I use fresh whipped cream instead of cool whip. Whipped cream is simply heavy cream and sugar whipped. It gives the dip a better and fresher flavor and texture. Just in case you were unaware there are Cool Whip Haters out there. They are very passionate about their dislike for the stuff. If you know any Cool Whip Haters share this recipe with them. Nothing makes them more happy than a recipe that uses fresh whipped cream.

This dip is perfect for Fall parties like office Thanksgiving and Christmas potlucks, Halloween parties or holiday cocktail parties. Speaking of holiday cocktail parties I need to get on that! Planning is always the fun part! Anyway dessert dips are always great to have at any social gathering. They are sweet and you just can’t get enough! Plus they are easy to make. There is no cooking involved. Anyone, no matter the experience level can handle making this recipe. This cream cheese pumpkin dip is easy to eat and pretty damn addictive. It will be gone before the night is over.

My favorite thing to dip is ginger snaps. I love ginger snaps around the Fall and Winter. For Christmas one year I dipped ginger snaps in melted chocolate and they were amazing! Here is my Chocolate Dipped Ginger Snap Recipe. I even put crushed ginger snap crumbs over the top of the dip for a textured garnish.

Since it is not socially acceptable to eat this with a spoon here is a list of dippers. If you think of anymore more dippers please comment below. We would love to see it.
