Sometimes homemade food gifts aren’t the best ones to give – it’s sad but we live in a world where people do crazy things and if you don’t know someone really well, store-bought treats might be the best way to give them something you know for sure they will eat. That said – if you happen to know a teacher well enough that they would eat something homemade from you, this crockpot caramel apple butter looks downright drool worthy!

On that same note above — if you would love to give a teacher the gift of homemade baked goods, but aren’t sure it’s the best idea, just try this DIY teacher gift instead! From scratch brownie mix in a jar – decorate with a cute tag and there you have it.
