Here is the recipe and instructions for the super cute Teacher Gift Idea from my Good Day Sacramento spot today. Here’s a link to the video.
Teacher Gift Idea
Cupid Chow Recipe
1 box crunchy cereal (I used Crispix, but you could use Chex)
1 bag milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter (we eat the all natural stir stuff, but for this I bought Jiff because it has a sweeter flavor)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 bag Valentine’s Day M&Ms
Put the peanut butter and chocolate into a microwave safe dish. Nuke it for 45 second intervals (stirring each time) until it’s fully melted and combined. If it starts to get a weird clumpy texture try a tablespoon of butter. Butter makes everything better, LOL. Pour your cereal into a large bowl. Then pour the chocolate and peanut butter mixture on top and stir stir stir. You may feel like your crunching up your cereal, but it’s all good. I promise. Next add your powdered sugar to the bowl and stir stir stir again until it’s all coated and looking tasty. (Some really awesome people put the chocolaty covered cereal into zip lock bags and shake with the powdered sugar in batches. This mama doesn’t like to dirty up or use up too many things. And mine came out pretty good….Just sayin’) The add the M&Ms, stir again and place into the fridge to chill.
Let’s put this gift together! I bought a cute little 2 cup size measuring cup at the store. I filled up a bag with the Cupid Chow and tied it up with twine. I found this awesome Free Printable, printed it out, punched a hole in the corner, and had Ms. Lou write her name. I also added a gift card for her teacher. I hear not all teachers like coffee, so this teacher gets a gift cert to the liquor store. I kid, I kid…but I really did buy her a gift card for a wine shop. Lyla’s teacher is cool like that. Enjoy and warning, this mix is very very addicting.
