coconut milk & chocolate chip pumpkin dip

I’m fairly certain we can do this.

Coconut Milk & Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Dip

It’s going to be real easy.  Trust me.  All I ask is that you pay attention to me for a few short minutes. Come on, we can totally rock this.

I had wanted to make Jessica’s white bean spread.  Sadly, I didn’t have oranges.  I didn’t have beans. Annnnnd I didn’t have orange juice.  But I did have pumpkin.  Annnnnd chocolate.  I always have chocolate.

This pumpkin dip is blended in an food processor with a shiny blade before it’s mixed with coconut milk and sugar and cocoa powder.  Then I add the chocolate chips…  Cute, adorable morsels of sweet, rich little chocolate droplets.  Oh, how they make my eye lashes batter and my heart beat 352,546,534 times per second.

I’m glad this recipe doesn’t involve frying.  I’m glad it doesn’t involve hot, spattering oil.  Or boiling water.  Or preheated skillets that burn my fingers.  Or sharp knives.  I need a break from all that…  It’s enough for me to not totally spill this stuff all over my cute boots just pouring it into a serving dish.

This spread…  Or dip…  Whatever you want to call it, is good.  Dang good.  It’s a nice balance.  It’s neither too bitter nor too sweet thanks to the unsweetened cocoa powder and the sugar.  Yay, balance.

Pumpkin is pureed with cinnamon and nutmeg and combined with coconut milk.  Come on.  What’s not to love?

It’s good warm…  If you are impatient like me.  But it’s also good cold….  If you are a patient person unlike me.  I’m obsessed.  I also say the same thing about Orlando Bloom, homemade Oreos, and really good jazz music.  So stop judging me.

Just do me a favor?  It’ll only take 5 minutes?  Make this dang thing.

  1. Why haven’t I ever made this? WHY?

    Ahh this is making me freak out cause it looks so good! I’ve seen dips like this made with beans and stuff (and I’ve been….curious). But this I can definitely handle. Pumpkin transforms everything to awesome, in my opinion. I don’t even care that its “spring” and pumpkin is a winter thing. Boo.
