Pumpkin Dip and Chips

For special snack today we made a pumpkin dip. 
You can find many different pumpkin dips on Pinterest
and the one I chose came from Carolina Charm.

This recipe is super simple and delicious.

Mix cool whip and pumpkin in a bowl.
Sprinkle on vanilla pudding mix and cinnamon (I forgot to bring pumpkin spice).

Stir it altogether and it’s ready to eat.
(Note: we only made half the recipe and that was more than enough
for the 25 children that attended this morning).

But before you run out to grab those ingredients,
check out these pumpkin shaped tortilla chips that I made to go with the dip.

Stack about 6 tortillas and press the cookie cutter through.
Spray pan and place the tortilla shapes on it.
At this point you can spray the shapes again and then sprinkle with a
cinnamon sugar mix.
But because it is a sweet dip I decided to skip that step.
Bake at 350F for about 6 minutes.

One bag of small tortillas will make a whole pile of chips.

Now back to the snack table.

I provide sliced apple, carrot and green peppers with the chips to dip.

Today's snack got a big thumbs up of approval.

  1. Did you bake the pumpkin chips? At what temperature?

    1. Oh yes, sorry I forgot to put that in.
      Bake at 350F for about 6 minutes.
      They will firm up more when they cool.

  2. I love it that you made your own pumpkin shaped chips! Thanks for sharing and the great photos. I can't wait to make some myself.
