Ingredients

  • 8 ounce cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin, canned
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Whipped Cream
  • 2 medium apple, Granny Smith
  • 2 cup grapes, green
  • 1 cup grapes, red
  • 1/2 medium bell pepper, red

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, vanilla, and honey. Start at low speed until the ingredients are incorporated and then mix on high 2 minutes. Start with ½ teaspoon cinnamon and then add up to ½ teaspoon more to taste.
  • Gently fold in the whipped cream (or whipped topping) for an even fluffier fruit dip. This step can be omitted if you wish.
  • With a mandolin, slice the apples to ⅜" thick. Cut the apples in half and then use a small circle cookie cutter to cut out the center seeds and core. Store the apple slices in water with lemon juice until ready to serve to discourage browning.
  • Fill a small round serving dish with the pumpkin dish and place in the center of the platter.
  • On a large round platter, place a few rows of apples around the whole outside of the platter.
  • Fill in the center of the wreath with green grapes.
  • Place red grapes, in bunches of 3, around the wreath to look like berries.
  • To complete the wreath, tie a bow with a strip of red bell pepper and place at the bottom of the wreath.
  • Serve any additional fruit in a tray to the side.
