Since 2011, this is the #1 highest traffic pin to my website. And for good reason -- this simple dessert is sure to please any crowd. It's the perfect app or dessert to bring to a party because it travels well, can sit out for a long period of time and there's no container to bring home (if you make it in a pumpkin)! I also love how light this dessert is. It's not super rich and even though it's definitely not the unhealthiest dessert, you can reduce the calories by using "light" coolwhip and serve with apple slices if you really want to behave.


  • 15 oz can of pumpkin
  • 5 oz box of instant vanilla pudding (just the powder, don’t make the pudding)
  • 16 oz container cool whip 
  • 1/2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 small pumpkin


  1. Mix pumpkin, pudding mix powder, cool whip and pumpkin pie spice together in a large bowl.
  2. Chill for several hours in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, carve out your pumpkin.
  3. Fill carved pumpkin with dip. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve with fresh apples slices, vanilla wafers or ginger snaps.

Note: consider sprinkling some mini spiders around your dessert for Halloween!

Hello, I have used this recipe for years! Everyone I make it for loves it! But I'm curious, how long do you think it'll last in the fridge in a sealed container? I made a batch and only used about half and I hate to just throw it out (I'll never eat it all myself!), so I'm wondering if I made it on a Saturday, will it hold through the following Saturday? Guess I'm going to give it a try either way, just wondered what everyone's thoughts were. Thanks!

I have tried it twice now. Second time I used white chocolate pudding. Got a ceramic pumpkin to put dip in. Pumpkin plates for ginger snaps and vanilla wafers. Next time I will add a bit more of the spices. I also used a brick of softened cream cheese.
