Valentine’s Day is almost here! Are you celebrating? It will be pretty quiet here after we exchange cards and have a special breakfast. And somehow I got assigned to bring snacks for Caroline and Henry’s preschool teachers today. Teacher snacks on Valentine’s Day? Yeah, no pressure there!
On the snack menu: bagels and box brownies. But that seemed a little sad. A plain bagel? On Valentine’s? These teachers are putting up with Henry 3 days a week – they deserve something special!
Admittedly I was a straight A student in school so the overachiever in me comes out when trying to impress teachers.
Say goodbye to plain bagels with these simple 2-ingredient spreads. Gold star!
Raspberry Cream Cheese
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 2-3 tablespoons raspberry jam
Put everything in a bowl and mix well. If the consistency gets too runny, just add more cream cheese.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (I used soy nut butter because it is a nut free school. But peanut butter would taste even better.)
- 1-2 tablespoons chopped chocolate chips
Put everything in a bowl and mix well. Since the peanut butter is thicker than the cream cheese you might need more liquid to get to an easily spreadable consistency.
