Destination: Inspiration Link Party #22 & Cool Teacher Gifts

I hope you had a great weekend! Ours was jam packed with tons of fun and I have some great pictures to share. I had a wonderful guest blogger lined up for today but our days were so crazy here that I didn't give her time to complete the interview questions so I decided to hold off on a featured blogger for the week. 

Instead, I am re-posting this easy teacher gift. I also took this as a hostess gift to my friend Krissy's Labor Day weekend party! It is a cool twist on giving the teach an apple. 

Caramel Cream Toffee Dip

I borrowed this idea from Event Trender on Pinterest. It is a twist on an apple for the teacher. Who could resist carmel apple with chocolate toffee dip? Super easy to make an inexpensive too!

- one package cream cheese, softened
- one package Marzetti's carmel dip
- green apples
- Heath chocolate toffee bars 

- 2-4 half pint mason jars
- natural colored raffia ribbon
- cellophane bags
 - decorative ribbon

Mix cream cheese and some caramel in a bowl to taste. This tip here is to not make this bottom layer too sweet as the carmel and candy layers will do that work for you! Smooth about a 1/2 to inch thick layer in the bottom of the mason jar. Wipe edges clean with a dry paper towel. 

Add a layer of caramel. Chop toffee bars into chocolate chip sized pieces. I use a kitchen knife for this. Layer toffee on top. Seal jar. Wrap jar and green apple within celeophane bag. Seal with ribbons. 

*Make sure recipient knows to refrigerate due to the cream cheese layer. 

If you are interested in guest posting or being featured here send an email to teaganstravels@yahoo.com. It would be great if you include a picture as well and a blog button, if you have one. 

Alright, we are off to another great party. 
Share as many inspirational posts as you like!
