When to make pumpkin fluff

Pumpkin fluff makes a great dip to set out as an appetizer for a get together, or you can make it to eat all by yourself…I won’t tell. You can even serve it inside a cleaned out pumpkin to make it extra festive.

You can also use it in place of regular whipped cream on a piece of pie or to replace regular cool whip when topping a no bake dessert.

This recipe is about as easy as it gets! It uses just 4 ingredients and comes together in about 5 minutes.

1 – Mix together vanilla pudding mix, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice until blended.

Want to make it look extra pretty? Put it in a piping bag or ziploc bag (then snip the corner) and pipe it into a bowl for a fancier look.

What should I use for dipping?

You can use whatever you like but here are some delicious suggestions:

  • apple slices
  • ginger snaps
  • shortbread cookies
  • pretzels
  • graham crackers
  • teddy graham cookies

Can I make it ahead of time?

This dish is going to best when it’s pretty fresh. It only takes a few minutes to make. You can make it a few hours ahead of time but you’ll want to store it in the fridge.

The cool whip will begin to break down if it gets too hot or gets mixed too much.
