Today is the first day of spring break and while we were supposed to be at Disneyland today, we’re at home because of delays to our kitchen remodel. As sad as I am, I’m trying to take advantage of these extra “free” days and getting a jump start on Easter baskets, spring cleaning, and teacher appreciation gift ideas.

I’ve joined forces with some of my favorite creative bloggers to bring you a plethora of fabulous ideas for showering the teachers in your life with appreciation and gifts.

I couldn’t resist the opportunity to make one of my all-time favorite candies – peanut clusters! This recipe is insanely easy and results in the most buttery-chocolate peanut cluster you can imagine.

As you can see, I don’t hold back with regards to the size. My feeling is one big cluster makes me feel less guilty than eating two or three small clusters, but, you can make them as big or small as you like. Don’t leave out the toffee though! The addition of toffee bits takes them over the top!

I use lightly salted roasted peanuts for my clusters. I think all the richness from the chocolate needs a little salt to offset it. Perfection!

They make the perfect gift whether you fill a small canning jar with them or a cellophane bag. Tie with a pretty bow or flower and you’re all set. I love that these clusters provide a punch of protein and a whole lotta chocolate – exactly what every teacher (and mom!) needs at about 2 p.m.

  29. Auntiepatch says:

    Mrs. Marston was my 4th grade teacher. She was my favorite even though she failed me in reading. It was 1957 and I read more books than the rest of the class combined. She called my mom in for a parent/teacher meeting and told my mom that I was failing reading because I wasn’t turning in book reports. When mom got home from the meeting, she told me that I needed to make book reports. When I asked why I had to do the book reports, she said Mrs. Marston needed a report when I finished a book to know what the book was about. I told mom that if Mrs. Marston wanted to know what the books I was reading were about, she should read them herself. I wasn’t being “cheeky”, I just didn’t want to take the time to write a report when I could move on to the next book. So, I spent one weekend writing 25 book reports to make my favorite teacher happy. It changed my “F” into an “A”.
    Many years later, I was called into my son’s 4th grade teacher’s class for a parent/teacher meeting. You guessed it: my son was failing reading because he wasn’t writing book reports. I laughed and told his teacher my story of failure in the 4th grade for the very same reason. When I got home, and told my son that he needed to write book reports or he would fail reading, he looked up from his book and said, “I don’t have time to do book reports.” Then he went back to his book. He was tested at college level reading in the second grade, and I really felt for him, but I made him fill out 15 book reports to give to his teacher. I told him my story and we both laughed about it. I can’t wait to see if my grandchildren will be lax with their book reports!
