Maggie Monday: Pumpkin Dip

Pumpkin is generally seen as such a seasonal item but it really can have a greater impact to your guests when they are not inundated with it. Check this out below…

Super easy, super yummy! This is a quick and simple dessert- great any time of year, and something really different. I’ve made this twice already this season.

This recipe makes 4 cups, so it is great for crowds. You can also cut it in half.

We had a horse show for which we had to sell concessions, and this was packaged in little take-away sauce cups with lids, with a few ginger snap cookies in a snack size zip bag. Great little snack!

I’ve been asked to share the recipe several times already, so keep this on hand. This is perfect to take to a party during the busy holiday season if you don’t have much time, but want bring something pretty and unique.

Enjoy! This is delicious!!
