Miss Priss earned kindergarten Star of the Week last week. Since all students receive this prestigious award at one point during the year, I am not so sure it is a terribly big honor, but she was excited. Requirements? Send in several pictures of your family (= work for me). Send in special show and tell (= monitoring from me). Send in special snack on Friday (= opportunity to get carried away for me).
If you read about the Dill Dip, you know that I take kindergarten snacks very seriously, and my daughter has a much better sense of what is appropriate. Nevertheless, she was Star of the Week, and I thought it deserved something special– Heath Bar Apple Dip with pretzels and apple slices. The first time I tasted this stuff, I practically fell down. Let me know if you think it is as delicious as my family does.
- 1 8-oz block cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 3/4 c. brown sugar
- 1 t. vanilla
- 1/2 bag Heath toffee bits (or crushed Skor bar)
- Apple wedges (I like Granny Smith apples, peeled)
- Snyder’s Dipping Stix or Snaps (optional)
- Cream together cream cheese, sugars, and vanilla
- Stir in Heath bits with a spoon
- Serve with apple wedges and/or pretzels
- Note: cut apples into pineapple juice to keep from turning brown
Sounds like the perfect snack for my Brownie troop! I can’t wait to try it.
If you don’t have any nut allergies, another great dip for apple slices is 3 T. peanut butter, 2 T. honey, and 1 T. apple juice. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir until smooth. Can be doubled, tripled, etc.
Yeay, go Miss Priss! And yum.
I love this. And it’s given me an idea. I’ve been languishing for chart rewards for a couple classes. I don’t want to waste time with silly movies that are out of curriculum. I think this is an awesome recipe:)
You can’t go wrong with food rewards! I have also given out “no hassle” bathroom passes. I tried not to let my HS students leave to go to the bathroom (ie they were bored). If they had a pass, I would take it and not say a word!
That’s awesome, too.
I can’t ever make this because I WILL eat it all. Sounds delicious!
It is addictive for sure!
