Caramel Apple Gift in a Jar by My Sisters Suitcase

Posted by  ·  September 28, 2013  ·  Last Updated: September 28, 2013

Hey there, Skip to My Lou readers! We are Nat & Holly of My Sister’s Suitcase, and we’re so excited to be here today! We have followed Cindy’s blog forever and it’s a huge honor to be here. Our blog features DIY projects, home decor, gift ideas and printables. Today we’d like to share our Caramel Apple To-Go gift!

This gift in a jar is perfect for apple season! You can easily put a Caramel Apple Kit together for friends, neighbors or teachers in just a few minutes.Everything I used for the kit I grabbed on a (late-night) trip to the grocery store!

You will need:

  • apples (small size)
  • single-serving caramel dip (found right by the apples – convenient!)
  • candy bar such as Skor – optional
  • wide-mouth quart jars

I’ll admit, I was pretty excited when I found I could fit two apples in my little jar! This is why you must get the wide-mouth jars.

The snack size container of caramel fits in there perfectly, too! The candy bar can be crumbled up on top of the dip for an extra treat.

Don’t worry, we’re not leaving you without a cute printable tag! You can print the PDF of 4 tags (found HERE) or right-click to save this image (already sized at 4×6 inches) and print at your local photo printer! I have been doing this a lot lately because it’s cheap and the color quality is much better than my printer at home.

You can cut the circle out by hand – yup, even if it’s crooked – because it will be hidden by the lid’s ring once you tighten it. I didn’t glue it to the lid so that the jar can still be re-used. 

 You can also punch it out with a 3″ punch and tie to the jar with twine or ribbon. I love using flattened cupcake liners to decorate the lids of jars! It’s an easy alternative to cutting out paper or fabric.

Do you know someone whose day could be brightened by a little sweet treat to go? We hope you’ll come see us at My Sister’s Suitcase for more gift ideas! Here are two other simple gifts with printable tags that you can use this fall/Halloween!

    Absolutely love this idea! So simple, but so cute! And anyone who gives me a Skor candy bar will be a friend forever - one of my faves :-) Pinned!

    Super cute. We have tons of apples from apple picking. I think these might be perfect for some fall teacher gifts.
