This pumpkin cream cheese apple dip is ridiculously easy. The original recipe I found at Deliciously Sprinkled. I like her recipe, however I found that the cool whip overpowered the dip causing it to be a little to bland for my liking. With a few tweaks I got it packed with flavor, so much so you might just lick the bowl when you are finished.
While I have your attention, I wanted to remind you of a very important task you need to do. Check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. While you’re at it go ahead and change the batteries.
Look at all those delicious ingredients. The perfect balance of sweet and savory.
You’re probably wondering why I asked you to check your detectors and change the batteries. I’ll tell you, last week my parents neighbor’s carbon monoxide detector started going off in the middle of the night (only a few days after she had it serviced). When this happened my neighbor, Nancy, decided to go sleep in her car to be on the safe side till morning when she could fully investigate what was going on.
While she was asleep in her car she accidentally set off her car alarm. My mom happened to hear the alarm going off and decided to make sure everything was ok. She saw Nancy in her car and went over to ask if everything was ok and when Nancy told her what was going on my mom invited her over to the house.
They decided to call the fire department to come out to make sure there was an actual leak. Luckily, there wasn’t, it ended up just being the battery.
umm yes please! Who doesn’t love powdered sugar?!
When my mom told me this I asked her why they wouldn’t have just checked the battery before they called the Fire Department in the middle of the night
My mom told me they thought the same thing after they had already called. However, once the Fire Department got there they said they were glad they called. And to never check a carbon monoxide detector if it is going off. You should always leave the house immediately and call the fire department. She continued to say that by the time you checked the detector (if there were a leak) you would pass out and likely die.
So with the holidays near and the increase use of our gas fireplaces and stoves it’s always a good idea to check your detectors and even change the batteries. They say that fall back (which is quickly approaching) and spring forward are perfect reminder times to change your batteries to the detectors in your home.
Can you see how stinkin’ easy this dip is?! Just mix everything up in a bowl, lick the spoons and enjoy with crispy apple slices.
