Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip
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!

This dip sounds awesome! My kids would love this with apple or pear slices. Thanks for sharing :o)

I would snack on this all day on Thanksgiving! I love the idea of dipping ginger snaps. You could even serve this as dessert!

the blissful baker said...

i love pumpkin anything, and this dip looks so creamy and delicious! gingersnaps and apple slices would definitely be great for dipping, but i could probably just eat it by the spoonful too!

Such a great idea, and it looks great served in the little pumpkin!

Meister @ Eat This Neighborhood said...

This is my first year actually attempting to use fresh pumpkin and making my own puree, and I love the idea of presenting the dip in a hollowed-out pumpkin!

So charming, and I bet the dip goes great with ginger snaps.

Great on cookies and great on bread. We've made something like this, and it was amazing on crostini. Nice!

Laura Keller said...

What a simple and delicious dip! A great idea for fall entertaining!

Dom at Belleau Kitchen said...

such a great idea Kevin and I love the fact that you've used the pumpkin for the bowl... i've seen this done with soups before but never with dips so I can now 'borrow' this from you and show it on my blog in the UK and wow everyone! It's halloween coming up soon and there are plenty of pumpkins around! Thanks again for a great blog x

Bigarade said...

Jenn from Much to My Delight said...

Ooh, that sounds pretty heavenly. And you just can't beat a hallowed out pumpkin for an autumnal presentation.

Angie said...

I may need to make this for an upcoming harvest dinner! Thanks!

Jennifer said...

Fabulous dip! I loved how you served it!!

dasunrisin said...

Very cute! I bet it gets messy once you've gotten to the bottom of the pumpkin-- hard to get all that goodness out :).

Thank you for sharing.

By the way, I've added you to my blogroll.

Ana Powell said...

So original, what a lovely centre piece ♥

Patty said...

What a very clever recipe??! Pumpkin dip? To be used with gingersnaps?! Brilliant idea indeed. We are having a party at my daughter's school, so perhaps I'll try this dip! Thanks for the inspiration!

esdelope said...

My mouth watered at the sight of this! I'm so excited by fall flavours!

Janet Croft said...

I just made this and it's delicious! May I suggest, though, that it turns out better if you first process the cream cheese till very smooth, them cream in the sugar, then add the other ingredients. Also, if you want to reduce carbs or are out of brown sugar, you can substitute 1 C Splenda plus 2 T blackstrap molasses.

HereBeDragons said...

This looks incredible! Especially displayed in a pumpkin! I might have to try this tonight for a pre-Halloween party!

Melissa Sue said...

I made this yesterday! Turned out great and got a ton of compliments. Served with apples and cinnamon-sugar cookies :) Thanks for posting the recipe!

Tami said...

This is just plain amazing. We had gingersnaps and sugar cookies!

hmmm... said...

I still want to try this, but I was craving something savoury the other day so I made a pumpkin dip with cream cheese and curry powder. Oh man, was that amazing!

Shelbyrlff said...

I tried out this recipe and did not enjoy it. I think it may have called for too much ginger, it did not remind me of pumpkin pie. To anyone making this, I would try out just 1/4 tsp first.

We Are Not Martha said...

Ohhh my gosh- I want to eat an entire pumpkin filled with this! Delicious!!
