Trying to come up with fresh ideas for teacher's gifts at the end of the year is a little challenging. Last year I totally blew it and didn't do anything. I always give out cookies, so I thought about maybe doing Rice Krispie Treats.
And then I remembered these Froot Loops treats I did awhile back and tried to think if there's any teacher appropriate cereal out there that would work when it hit me - Alpha Bits! Perfect!
I used the classic Rice Krispie Treats Recipe (3 tbl butter melted with 4 cups mini marshmallow and 6 cups of cereal), doubled the recipe and poured at all onto a greased cookie sheet. I greased my hands and compressed the cereal goo to give me high and dense treat bars.
When cool I use a long sharp knife to cut into squares and managed to squeeze in 2 layers of nine treats in each of these adorable jars scored at TJ Maxx ($7.99! Total steal!) The came with chalkboard labels that I wrote our message on, tied them up with a fat yellow polka dot bow and voila! Teachers gifts!
