Teacher Appreciation Week, Day 3

It is now Day 3 of Teacher Appreciation Week, and my kids have another DIY gift to give to their teachers.  This time it is a small jar (4 oz) of caramel cream cheese apple dip with Heath bar bits and a green apple.  This project is very simple.  Below are the materials needed and directions to follow. 

Here is the final product:

Apples and dip wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with ribbon and raffia.
And......I got to make labels again!

Label for the bag.

Recipe for Caramel Cream Cheese Dip:
(Makes 4 jars that are 4 oz each)
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (15 oz) tub of caramel apple dip
1 bag of Heath bar bits (I found this in the baking aisle)

In a small mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese and 4 spoonfuls of caramel.  Use a hand mixer to blend well, until creamy.

Materials Needed:
  1. Cream Cheese dip (recipe above)
  2. Caramel apple dip
  3. Heath bar bits
  4. Green apple
  5. 4 oz Mason jar
  6. Medium-sized cellophane bag
  7. Ribbon
  8. Raffia
  9. White card stock to print out labels
  10. Printer
Final product of the Caramel Cream Cheese Apple Dip with Heath Bar bits.

  1. Make the caramel cream cheese apple dip using recipe above.  Spoon mixture into 4 oz Mason jar until the jar is about 3/4 full. 
  2. Carefully wipe any dip off of the jar that spilled.
  3. On top of the cream cheese and caramel mixture, drop a healthy spoonful of caramel.
  4. Top caramel with Heath bar bits (see picture below).Place lid on top of jar and close tight
  5. Make labels on white card stock for the top of the jar by using Microsoft Word.  Draw a circle and type in a text box inside the circle: "Caramel Cream Cheese Apple Dip with Heath Bar bits." Print.  Cut out circle and, using double stick tape, place on top of the jar lid.
  6. Make rectangle labels on white card stock by using Microsoft Word.  Draw a rectangle and type in a text box inside the circle: "A good teacher deserves and apple.  You deserve the whole tree!"  I used an apple clip art to add to the label.  Last, type your "to" and "from" information.  Print.  Cut out labels and punch a hole with a hole puncher in the top left corner so that you will be able to run the ribbon through it.
  7. Place jar in the cellophane bag and top with green apple.
  8. Using the ribbon and raffia, tie the bag shut (be sure to attach the label with the hole to the ribbon before tying in a bow.
  9. Give to teacher.
