Hello all, Esther here with a cute gift idea for your childs favorite teacher!!!
A little bit of an upscaled twist on the old "apple for the teacher"!!
To make this cute gift I used one of our new files, #65667 Gift Tote For Pint Jar. Although I used a smaller jar, I also included an apple, so it made my treat a little larger than a pint jar. Therefore I enlarged the file, once I had downloaded it, so that it would be about 5 1/4" tall.
On the inside I enclosed a jar with homemade carmel apple dip, along with an apple.
I found this recipe on Pinterest at the blog Jo and Sue, and I will pass it on to you.
I used 4oz. canning jars for my dip.
Apple with Caramel Cream Cheese Dip
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
10 pkgs (2 oz ea.) caramel dip (*note - I substituted a 16oz tub of caramel dip)
2 Skor candy bars (I substituted Heath candy bars)
8 (1/2 cup each) mason jars
Mix softened cream cheese with 4 oz caramel dip (2 pkgs of the 2 oz pkgs). Mix until smooth. Divide evenly amongst the 8 jars. Wipe rims. Spoon remaining caramel dip into jars (1 each if using the 2 oz pkgs). Crush up both Skor bars. Sprinkle Skor crumbs evenly amongst the 8 jars. Place lid on jars. Top each jar with an apple. Wrap in cellophane and tie with ribbon. Keep refrigerated until ready to give.
I don't guarantee an automatic "A', but it sure can't hurt LOL!!!
