Ingredients for Pumpkin Butterscotch Dip

This dip recipe I’m sharing today is the crazy amazing cousin to this Pumpkin Dip recipe. Super similar but also made with a few different ingredients, so gather up these things to start making Pumpkin Butterscotch Dip.

  • Heavy Cream – this is whipped up to make a light and fluffy texture.
  • Pumpkin Puree, Cinnamon, and Pumpkin Spice – this is where the pumpkin flavor comes from. Plus the seasonings help enhance all the deliciousness going on.
  • Milk and Instant Butterscotch Pudding Mix – these two are mixed together and then refrigerated to create a thicker butterscotch flavored mixture to mix in with the pumpkin mixture.
  • Pecans – these are used as a garnish and are optional.

Cinnamon Sugar Twists

And here is what you need to make these SUPER easy Cinnamon Sugar Twists:

  • Puff Pastry – when I said “easy” I wasn’t kidding! I used puff pastry to create the perfect dipping option.
  • Melted Butter – this is brushed onto the puff pastry so that the cinnamon-sugar mixture will stick.
  • Cinnamon and Sugar – a subtle but amazing mixture that brings some spice and sweetness.

  3. Twist the strips and bake. This is pretty much the hardest part.
  4. While those are baking, make the Pumpkin Butterscotch Dip (see below).

How to Make Pumpkin Butterscotch Dip

For full details on how to make Pumpkin Butterscotch Dip, see the recipe card down below!

  1. Whip some cream and fold it together with some pumpkin, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
  2. THEN, in another bowl, whip some milk together with some instant butterscotch pudding. Let that sit for a minute or so to start setting up and then fold that into the pumpkin mixture to get your creamy pumpkin butterscotch dip. It should keep thickening for another minute or two. Then you can eat it with a spoon put it into a serving bowl.

    It is so hard to eat right when you are sleep deprived! My kids are 5 and 2 and I still feel like I’m sleep deprived some nights! This dip looks amazing! I could probably eat the whole thing!

    Ugh is this his first tooth? The first ones are always the worst. I lost so much sleep too because my daughter wouldn’t sleep unless she was on my chest! Hang in there.

    Sleep deprivation is the worst…..mine didn’t sleep through the night until they were 2 years old…my 25 year old still has trouble sleeping. At least she doesn’t disrupt my sleep any longer. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

    I love how the twists make it kind of like pumpkin pie without the pie. if that makes sense. 🙂 I hope you make it through the teething – that is seriously the worst!!
