adapted from 

1 (16 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
1 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
In a large bowl, mix together instant vanilla pudding mix, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Fold in the thawed frozen whipped topping. Chill in the refrigerator until serving. Serve with ginger snaps, vanilla wafers, cinnamon graham crackers or animal crackers.

let's face it... cheap budget friendly:)
just scoop out a pumpkin, line it with a pretty napkin
and fill it up with chips.
