Ingredients Needed for this Pumpkin Dip
- Cream Cheese- Softened cream cheese is easier to blend, but you do not want to leave it at room temperature for longer than 2 hours.
- Powdered Sugar- You could use store bought powdered sugar or you can make your own homemade powdered sugar
- Brown Sugar– Use light or dark, but I prefer light. You can also make your own. Be sure to pack it into your cup
- Pumpkin Pie Spice- – Pumpkin pie spice is going to give these cupcakes tons of flavor. Pumpkin pie spice is a combination of ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and ground allspice. You can find the exact measurements of each in this recipe
- Pumpkin Puree– Make sure you get pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
- Whipped Topping– You could use a container of whipped topping (aka Cool Whip) but I think it’s worth the extra few minutes of making your own homemade whipped cream. Make sure it is thawed.
- Ground Cinnamon– This is used to top off the dip. But you could just sprinkle on more pumpkin pie spice.
