Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

Now that we are a week away from Halloween, there are pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! Pumpkin recipes, pumpkin patches, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough dip. Wait, say what? Cookie dough dip? With pumpkin? Oh yes, I so went there. If the name alone sounds amazing, here’s what my coworker said about it: “You aren’t actually going to share this with anyone but us, right?” Right. It’ll be our little secret.

I don’t think I’ve ever went to a pumpkin patch and picked a pumpkin before. If I did, I don’t remember it. This year, I wanted to pick a pumpkin and see how Murray would react to it (yes I’m one of those people). His reaction wasn’t very exciting though:



Oh hey what’s this?


*pose*


Are you done yet?


I’m leaving.


This cookie dough dip is cream cheese dip meets cookie dough. It’s similar to a cheese ball but not firm enough to roll. I made this version up to fit the season by adding pumpkin, cinnamon, and clove to regular cookie dough dip. Pumpkin adds fiber to the dish, so between you and me, it’s healthified ;) As far as dunking, you can use graham crackers, apples, pretzels, a spoon, or your fingers. You can even use it as a spread on quesadillas for dessert. Spray the outside of the tortillas with cooking spray (or brush with butter) and sprinkle on cinnamon sugar before frying.

Wouldn’t this dip make a great appetizer for Thanksgiving dinner? Is there a rule that appetizers have to be savory? You only live once. Go ahead. Break the rules.

Warning: this dip will cause you to go crazy. Another coworker was complaining about how bland her chicken soup was, so she added a scoop of this dip. Um yea, please don’t do that (although it actually wasn’t *that* bad because it added some needed sweetness). I can’t believe I just typed out that last sentence. Let’s just stick to spoons, ok?
