Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip, one bite and you'll understand why it's such a popular fall treat!

So there are times on the blog that I make a recipe, and it could be MONTHS before you ever see it here. Not that it’s a “bad” recipe, I just have so many to share, there has to be a certain “order” to how I share my recipes. And then, there is the moment of taking one bite of a recipe and I know I need to share it immediately.

Today’s recipes was one of those, “OMG you NEED this in your life, yesterday” recipes.

Wednesday I was planning on making a cheesecake. But, I only had one block of cream cheese. I also had a small bowl of pumpkin in my refrigerator, leftover from making some Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer.

After much thought (about 1 minute) I decided to make a cookie dough dip. They seem to be wildly popular here on Shugary Sweets. This Reese’s version went viral immediately, and still is made and enjoyed by so many of you!

Last year I made a healthy pumpkin pie dip that was so creamy and good…I knew today’s recipe would be a winner.

Using this Chocolate Chip Cookie dough dip recipe as my guide, I whipped up a pumpkin version that will knock your socks off people. I actually was sampling it in front of my husband (who is NOT a pumpkin eater, I know…tragic)…and I kept murmuring “I am a genius. A food genius.”

Then I googled pumpkin cookie dough dip and realized there are LOTS of geniuses out there. Kudos to you all!

A couple of things to keep in mind with this dip:

  • Keep your saucepan on low when melting the butter with the brown sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin. You don’t want to BOIL this mixture, just whisk until melted and smooth
  • Heating the pumpkin and cinnamon instead of adding them in with the cooled cream cheese mixture results in a much creamier texture. Trust me.
  • Allow the pumpkin mixture to cool COMPLETELY before adding it to the cream cheese. It will never set up if you add it warm.
  • Refrigerate dip for two hours (more or less). It allows the flavors to mingle, and gives the cream cheese time to firm up again with the pumpkin mixture.
  • Serve with gingersnaps. You will LOVE the tasty snap of the cookie with the pumpkin dip. Also good dippers include pretzels, apples, Nilla wafers, and graham crackers.
  • Have a big crowd? Double the recipe. You’ll thank me later!

Now, go make a batch of this Pumpkin dip and let me know if you think I’m a genius too! ha!

    this looks delish!! Any thoughts on using coconut oil in lieu of butter?? Think that’s an okay sub?

    I wouldn’t have been able to wait to post this, either. What is better than dipping cookies into cookie dough dip? PUMPKIN?! You are definitely letting your baking madwoman out here. Loving it!

    Pumpkin and cookie dough…yummy! Ginger snaps are my favorite dippers too for pumpkin dips.

    This weekend brought with it the first of many chilly mornings, and even chilly days, and man do I wish I had this pumpkin dip to curl up with this past weekend! Why bake cookies when you can shovel cookie dough dip in your face, right? 😉

    You’re right, I needed this in my life yesterday, and this morning, and this afternoon and right now and probably tomorrow too.
