Thank you Heluva Good! for sponsoring this post. Heluva Good! Dips are the perfect way to add flavor to any occasion.
If you have not noticed already, I am a Halloween fanatic. I have been my whole life! And since I had a little one running around the last few years, I have had to tone down the scary. But now that my daughter is in preschool, she’s starting to appreciate the holiday a bit more. So it’s time to whip out the spooky! To make our upcoming Halloween party extra eery, I have created the perfect seasonal dippers to pair with (my personal favorite party treat) Heluva Good! Dip. Who wants to sink their teeth into my Pumpkin Tombstones?!
Pumpkin Tombstone Dippers
Time: 30 min.; Yields: 12
- 1 1/2 cups of pumpkin purée
- 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup of panko
- 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 egg
- Preheat the oven to 425°F and either grease a silicone tombstone mold or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
- Spoon the mixture into the mold or form tombstone shapes on the parchment paper.

If you have never tried Heluva Good! Dips, then you are majorly missing out on one of life’s greatest joys. Seriously, it is up there with getting married and having a baby. Okay, okay, that is probably an exaggeration, but let me tell you this. One year, I forgot to pick up Heluva Good! Dips for a family party and there was such a fog of looming disappointment in the air that I had to leave to go pick some up. Only when I returned with the goods, did a guest finally crack a smile. It is absolutely divine! And with their irresistible, bold-flavored dips like French Onion, Buttermilk Ranch, Jalapeño Cheddar, and Bacon Horseradish, there is something for everyone. Luckily you can find all of Heluva Good! Dip’s seven flavors in the dairy aisle of your neighborhood supermarket. That leads me to why I now am obligated to create dippers for every family affair… my guests demand Heluva Good! Dip be served.
So now you know why I created a Pumpkin Tombstone dipper recipe for my upcoming Halloween. I do not want a Heluva Good! Dip revolt on my hands! And this recipe could not be easier to make. Don’t believe me? Check this out. Like all recipes, you want to preheat the oven to 425°F. Then you will either want to grease a silicone tombstone mold (easily purchased online) or line a baking sheet with parchment paper so you can hand mold the tombstones.
Next, just throw all of the ingredients into a big mixing bowl and then mix away. This is seriously the bulk of the hard work in this recipe.
Next, spoon the mixture into the silicone tombstone mold or form shapes on the parchment paper. Don’t be intimidated if you choose the hand-molding, the mixture is thick enough to easily shape.
Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the dippers are cooked through. Serve with Heluva Good! Dip and enjoy! And that is it, my little monsters. It is that simple. For a bit of extra fun, prop up the dippers with toothpicks… it’ll be sure to add a perfectly spooky finishing touch!
So make all the boys and ghouls at your Halloween festivities happy and have Heluva Good! Dip on hand. Made with real milk, and no oils or water, it certainly is my go-to dip for entertaining. Trust me, it is worth an extra trip to the store (even in full costume!). So pick up a couple of tubs and make Heluva Good! Dip your spookily delicious centerpiece. Happy Halloween!
