Just a little something for a brand new TEACHER!

Today my daughter was invited to meet her new 5th grade teacher!  Kate was just a bit nervous about the meeting so we decided to bring Miss Haslam a little gift.  We decided on an apple...not just any ole ordinary apple but a big bright shiny Granny Smith apple with a mason jar of scrumptious caramel sauce for dipping.  


It was a yummy HIT!  In fact we decided that our principal, secretaries and last year's teacher needed a treat as well.  After the deliveries were made Kate felt much better about the brand new school year...and maybe even earned a few brownie points!  A little extra credit never hurts!  

(Thanks to Event Trender for this great idea and recipe) 


Another great caramel dip recipe for apple dipping
Creamy Caramel Apple Dip
8 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/4 C White Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
Toffee Bits to taste.
Mix cream cheese and sugars together till creamy then add vanilla and toffee bits.  Serve with your favorite apple.  

The kids are in school, PTA responsibilities are somewhat complete, house is clean (for a bit) and I'm a happy mom!

  5. Thanks for sharing! Am I right in assuming that this dip can be made ahead of time and refrigerated? It looks delicious. :)

    1. Yes, Sarah. it will last a few days in the fridge. Possibly longer!
