How to Turn Pumpkin Dip Into a Thanksgiving Turkey You'll Be Sweet On!

Transform pumpkin dip and apples into a fun turkey for your Thanksgiving table. It’s so easy!

You'll need:

  • 1 tub (16 ounces) Cool Whip
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin puree
  • 1 large box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • assorted colored apples
  • lemon juice
  • water
  • 3 dried cranberries or cherries
  • 1 almond

Here's how you make it:

  1. Combine the pumpkin puree, pudding mix and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well.
  2. Gently fold in the Cool Whip until completely combined.
  3. Spoon the dip into a white bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Fill a small bowl with water and squeeze in some lemon juice.
  5. Cut the apples into wedges and dip them in the lemon water to prevent browning.
  6. Place the bowl of pumpkin dip on a larger round plate.
  7. Arrange the apple slices for the feathers.
  8. Insert two dried cranberries for the eyes (push them down so just the tips show).
  9. Lay a dried cranberry on top of the dip for the nose.
  10. Use an almond for the gobbler.
  11. Cut a thin piece of apple and cut out legs (as shown). Place at the bottom of the bowl.
