Recipe Review: Pumpkin Dip w/ Ginger Snaps & Vanilla Wafers

This past weekend, I was on Pinterest (LOVE!!), looking for a sweet treat to serve for some friends that were coming over for dinner.  I was looking for something fun and festive and stumbled upon a delicious Pumpkin Dip. It is uber quick and easy.  The men that were over LOVED it! They even asked if they could take some home. That same evening my girlfriend texted me for the recipe, per her husbands request, I guess it was hit!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, if you are looking for an easy alternative to pumpkin pie, or yummy appetizer that is sure to be a crowd give it a Try!

Pumpkin Dip with Ginger Snaps and Vanilla Wafers

*1(15oz) can of pumpkin
*1 (5oz) box of instant vanilla pudding
*1(16oz) container of cool whip
*1 small pumpkin (Optional. You can also use a cute festive bowl)
*1/2 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
*1/2 tablespoon Cinnamon
*Apple slices, gingersnaps, vanilla wafers

Cookware & Supplies you will need:
*Large bowl
*1/2 Tablespoon
*Mixing Spoon/Spatula
*Saran Wrap
*Knife and spoon if you are 
going to use a pumpkin to serve dip out of
*If not using a pumpkin to serve dip in, a festive fall bowl 

*By hand, mix pumpkin, vanilla pudding, cool whip, and pumpkin pie spice together in a large bowl.
*Cover with saran and let chill for a few hours
*If you are going to serve in a pumpkin, carve it while you are waiting for dip to chill.
*Once you are ready to serve, scoop dip into pumpkin or festive bowl and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve with gingersnaps, vanilla wafers & apples.
I can promise that at least one person you are making this for will love it :)  If you do end up making it, let me know how it turns out!
