Apple Treats in Three Seconds

Apples are every where this time of year.  We will go apple picking, cook with apples, craft with apples, and today we made a treat for our teachers with apples.

It is super simple and a great way to love on your teachers.  We used our family favorite, Honey Crisp Apples.  Then we purchased individual caramel sauce.  Stick them in a bag and tie it up with some ribbon.  You are finished.

Whit loved giving these treats to his teachers this morning.  And his teachers enjoyed a fun, yummy snack after school.


White Chocolate Popcorn (Valentine’s Style)

Everyone needs a little treat they can pull together without thinking.  Tomorrow is William’s Valentine’s party and we needed a sweet treat for his teachers.  Several years ago my Aunt Loree entered this tasty sweet into our family’s recipe box.  The truth is that White Chocolate Popcorn is extremely addictive.  I believe it is necessary to sample to make sure your batch is perfect!  Hopefully these bags of popcorn will last until tomorrow morning! -AF

A Treat for Our Teacher

 White Chocolate Popcorn

2 bags microwave popcorn (My sister and I swear by the natural pop, no butter)

1 pkg. white almond bark

*bonus- colored Wilton Candy Melts

Pop popcorn according to package directions.  Place in a very large bowl.*  Remove all unpopped kernels.

Melt almond bark in microwave. When completely melted, pour over popcorn.  Toss to coat evenly and then spread popcorn on wax paper.

Here’s the bonus: if you want to add a splash of color, melt 6 candy melts and drizzle over coated popcorn.  Add red for Valentine’s, green for St. Patty’s Day, etc.

Let cool completely.  Add some flair with almonds, M&Ms, pecans, etc, if you are feeling it.  Store in an airtight container.

Great for little gift bags.  Pour popcorn into clear cellophane bags and top with a coordinating bow.

*I use a plastic cake carrier.  Pop the lid on and you can shake the popcorn and almond bark for the best coating.

Drizzle with LOVE
