Pumpkin Dip

On my last post here at Portland Mama I shared that one of my favorite fall combinations is apples and caramel.

I especially love to dip my apples into this yummy caramel dip. So good!  You must try it.

Well, I found another yummy combination – pumpkin and apples.

At my recent Mummies Night Out Party I served my favorite caramel dip but I also served today’s recipe for pumpkin dip.  The caramel dip is much sweater than the pumpkin dip so it was nice to have the balance and maybe, just maybe, it is a bit healthier since there is pumpkin in it??

It would make a perfect appetizer for Thanksgiving dinner.  I like to serve it with an assortment of apples – red, green, yellow.  It makes for a prettier picture.

What’s your favorite thing to dip apples in?
