No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Dip



  • 1 brick (8 oz) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 small box (3.4 oz) instant pumpkin spice pudding mix
  • 1 container (8 oz) Cool Whip, thawed
  • Graham crackers or assorted fruits for dipping


  1. Prepare Cream Cheese Mixture:
    • In a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, add the softened cream cheese.
    • Using the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  2. Incorporate Sweetened Condensed Milk:
    • Gradually pour in the sweetened condensed milk while continuing to mix until well combined with the cream cheese.
  3. Add Pumpkin Spice Pudding Mix:
    • Sprinkle the instant pumpkin spice pudding mix over the cream cheese mixture.
    • Mix on low speed until the pudding mix is fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Fold in Cool Whip:
    • Gently fold in the Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture until evenly combined.
    • Be careful not to deflate the Cool Whip too much; you want to maintain a light and fluffy texture.
  5. Transfer and Store:
    • Spoon the cheesecake dip mixture into a clean Cool Whip container or any other airtight container for storage.
    • Refrigerate the dip for at least 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld and the mixture to set.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve the pumpkin spice cheesecake dip chilled with graham crackers for dipping or alongside a variety of fresh fruits.
    • Alternatively, enjoy the dip straight from the container or by the spoonful for a deliciously indulgent treat.


  • Feel free to adjust the amount of pumpkin spice pudding mix to suit your taste preferences. You can also use other flavors of instant pudding mix for different variations.
  • For a fun twist, consider garnishing the dip with a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice before serving.
  • This dip can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. If the dip becomes too firm after chilling, allow it to sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving to soften slightly.

Here are some helpful tips to make your No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Dip even more delightful:

  1. Enhance Pumpkin Flavor: Boost the pumpkin flavor by adding a tablespoon or two of canned pumpkin puree to the cream cheese mixture. This will intensify the pumpkin taste without affecting the texture too much.
  2. Adjust Sweetness: Taste the mixture as you go and adjust the sweetness to your preference. If you prefer a sweeter dip, you can add a little powdered sugar to the cream cheese mixture. Alternatively, if you prefer it less sweet, reduce the amount of sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Layered Dip: For a visually appealing presentation, consider layering the dip in a clear serving dish. Alternate layers of the cheesecake mixture with layers of crushed graham crackers or ginger snaps for a delicious textural contrast.
  4. Spice it Up: Experiment with additional spices to enhance the pumpkin spice flavor. Add a pinch of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or cloves to the cream cheese mixture for a more complex and aromatic flavor profile.
  5. Toasted Pecan Topping: Sprinkle chopped toasted pecans over the top of the dip just before serving for added crunch and nuttiness. It complements the pumpkin spice flavors beautifully.
  6. Serve with Wafers: Instead of traditional graham crackers, serve the dip with cinnamon sugar pita chips, gingersnap cookies, or vanilla wafer cookies for a unique and delicious twist.
  7. Drizzle with Caramel: Before serving, drizzle the top of the dip with caramel sauce for a decadent finishing touch. The combination of creamy cheesecake, pumpkin spice, and caramel is sure to delight your taste buds.
  8. Chill Properly: Allow the dip to chill in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together and the dip to thicken slightly, resulting in a smoother texture.
  9. Decorative Garnishes: Garnish the dip with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice just before serving for an extra pop of flavor and a beautiful presentation.
  10. Make Ahead: This dip can be made a day or two in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Just give it a quick stir before serving to ensure it’s well combined.

By incorporating these tips, you’ll elevate your No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Dip to a whole new level of deliciousness, perfect for any fall gathering or dessert spread.
