With all of the pumpkin recipes these days I could not help but think of one of my favourites, this caramel pumpkin cheesecake dip! Yes, that's right, all of the flavours of a caramel pumpkin cheesecake in the form of a dip that literally only takes 10 minutes to make! Cheesecake has to be one of these best desserts around and it only gets better when you add the flavours of pumpkin pie but lets face it, a nice cheesecake takes a bit of time and effort to make, and this dip takes almost no effort so you can whip it up on demand whether for last minute guests or just for yourself for some late night comfort cravings! When I make a pumpkin pie or a pumpkin pie cheesecake I like to use a gingersnap crumb crust because the ginger flavour goes so well with pumpkin so when I make this dip I add that gingersnap flavour either by using the ginger snap cookies for dipping or just crumbling them on top! If you're looking for a snack or appetizer for halloween or Thanksgiving, or for any time for that matter, you really can't go wrong with this caramel pumpkin cheesecake dip!
I like to serve this caramel pumpkin cheesecake dip topped with crumbled gingersnap cookies with sliced apples for dipping!
It's also great with gingersnap cookies for dipping!
Serve it in a hollowed out pumpkin for even more fun!
