- Heavy Cream: Helps thin the mixture to a dippable consistency.

Variations on Pumpkin Pie Dip
This pumpkin cream cheese dip is easy to jazz up with just a few simple additions. Try adding some chopped pecans and a drizzle of maple syrup; a swirl of melted chocolate, white chocolate, marshmallow fluff, or caramel sauce; or a dollop or two of Greek yogurt!
To make this dip a bit healthier, swap half of the cream cheese for plain or vanilla Greek yogurt, and opt for reduced-fat cream cheese for the rest.
If your dip turned out runny, you may have added too much heavy cream. You can remedy this by adding a bit more cream cheese or pumpkin puree and blending until it thickens back up.
