If you want a delicious fall snack to eat with apples or grahams, this pumpkin dip is amazing – with hints of salt and the yummy taste of caramel!
While we wait for the beautiful leaves to change color and the cool air to swoop in, there is no better time then now to break out all things pumpkin spice. This yummy dip is an original I whipped up in an attempt to create pumpkin spice bars.
The consistency didn’t come out right then suddenly a light bulb went off. Fruit and cracker dip! Infused with cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of sea salt, this pumpkin dip recipe hits that fall craving right in between the eyes.
You’ll need these ingredients:
- 1 stick of butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 can sweet condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 can pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
You’ll get this beautiful chocolate-brown color. Stir in the sweet condensed milk. Bring the caramel to a boil then reduce heat to simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Add in the vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.
Slice some fresh apples or lay out crunchy graham crackers on a platter then scoop away on this pumpkin dip! I had a hard time not eating this by the spoonful by itself. With lots of holiday parties up ahead, this would be a great dish to bring. Create it in one afternoon and enjoy it for the evening!
Amazing Salted Caramel Pumpkin Dip
- In a medium saucepan on medium heat, melt the stick of butter. Add in the brown sugar and whisk to combine. It should be a beautiful chocolate-brown color.
- Stir in the sweet condensed milk. Bring the caramel to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer on low for about 5 minutes.
- Add in the vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.
- In a bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg and the rest of the sea salt. Mix with a large spoon. Pour in half of the caramel mixture and stir.
- Spread the mixture on the bottom of an 8×11 inch glass pan. Drizzle the rest of the caramel sauce on top.
- You can serve it gooey and warm as-is, or place in the refrigerator for about an hour if you prefer a cold dip. Either way it's delicious!
