Amazing Salted Caramel Pumpkin Dip Recipe

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.

First it was the chocolate pumpkin bread, then it was the icebox cake. Shortly thereafter came the donut holes and then the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I decided it was time to try some bars, and add yet another pumpkin dessert to my repertoire.

The consistency didn’t come out right for the bars, then suddenly a light bulb went off: pumpkin dip!

You know, the kind you eat with apples or ginger snaps. Or crackers. Or drywall. Kidding about the last one, but it’s so good I’d consider it!

Does this harden in the fridge or is it still 'dip-able' after being refrigerated? Does it keep overnight?
