Okay, so I will be the first to admit it- this dessert dip looks gross, folks. But no worries because it also happens to be deliciously gross! And it is for Halloween. I mean, on what other day of the year can you get away with making a dessert dip that looks like vomit and actually impress your party guests- am I right? ;) I actually made this dip for my parents' costume party last Halloween. At first, the adults were a little hesitant to dig right in. But after they tried it, this dip disappeared pretty quickly. And the kiddos at the party immediately loved it & thought it was the best thing ever right from the get-go! (Shocking, huh?)

This dessert dip comes together pretty quickly- in less than 10 minutes. The carving of the pumpkin can take a little more time, but it is still pretty easy. I picked up a smallish medium white pumpkin (like the Cinderella variety) and had it scooped out and a carved in about 15 minutes. You can totally use an orange pumpkin for this if you can't find a white one, but I just love how the paleness of this pumpkin worked so well with the theme of the dip. ;)
