teacher appreciation: an apple for the teacher.

Last week was teacher appreciation week at Cason's school.
Case just loves his teacher. 
With guidance from the PTA, we found ways to show her every day of the week, 
but this one was our favorite (and the yummiest☺).
Easy too. 

The PTA suggested bringing an apple for the teacher one of the days. 
It seemed like she would get TONS of regular apples, so I wanted to embellish a little.
My original plan was to make some caramel apples, but I ran out of time. 
So then I thought I would just go pick some up,
but the shop wasn't open in the window of time I had to go get them.
Time to improvise!
I had already stuck a No2 pencil in the apple as the stick in preparation for caramelization, 
so I thought I would just go with it and figure something out. 
I grabbed pint-sized mason jars (which I already had) and filled them with apple dip, 
then stuck some cute paper on top. 
It could have been even cuter with a little tag, but again-- no time.

My recipe for the dip just kind of happened based on what I had.
(and I don't really remember all the measurements, so you might want to adjust some based on personal taste)
But it turned out SO yummy.

Caramel Apple Dip

8oz cream cheese (one brick), softened
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Powdered sugar to taste

Mix all ingredients together until smooth and creamy,
then top with more caramel and a generous amount of Heath bar bits.  

It's never too late to thank those wonderful teachers!
