Tips for making pumpkin dip

This pumpkin dip recipe takes just a few minutes to whip up! All you need is a food processor, though you can also use other tools to get the job done. Here are a few tips for making this simple dip recipe:

  • Use a food processor or stand mixer. The best tool for the job is a large food processor. You can also try it in a stand mixer or with an electric hand mixer.
  • Soften the cream cheese first. You can let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to soften, but we often don’t have the time for this. Here’s a trick: simply microwave it for 5 seconds. Just don’t do it any longer because you don’t want the cream cheese to melt!
  • Blend and serve immediately. Some pumpkin dip recipes require refrigeration but why wait? Take one bite of this creamy, fluffy dip and you’ll want to devour it immediately.
