End of year Teacher Gifts 2013

Jack made a robot card for his teachers.  The back of the plastic candy cup is tin foil for the teacher to pierce through. 
Here are the gifts for Ilana's teachers.  My favorite chex mix, ok the only chex mix, I like.  It is beyond addicting.  

Chex Mix Recipe:
 Judy's Chex Mix
  Crispex Cereal (1 Box)
  Large jar of Plantars roasted peanuts
  Small bag of pretzel sticks
  1 Box of light brown sugar
  2 sticks of salted butter
  1/2 cup light Caro syrup (you can find it right by the pancake syrup)
  Mini baking M & M's
  A cheap throw away turkey roasting pan.  If you get the really big one it just makes clean up way easier.
  Put: cereal, peanuts, 
and pretzels in the roasting   pan.
  Put: sugar, butter, and syrup in a pot and bring to a boil. 
          *it needs to be a FULL boil (center and  edges)  for 90 seconds.  If you don't do it long enough then  the  chex mix will end up sticky and if you do it too long it will be really hard.  So watch the clock.  
Pour: over dry mixutre and stir it up.  
 Put: in the oven at 350 for 8 minutes.  Stir itagain and put   it in for another 8 minutes.
  Spread  over tin foil (the new non-stick kind is best) on the  counter  to cool.  You will need a lot of counter space  so clear it off  before hand.  Add the M & M's as  soon as you can.  They  will melt a little bit and stick  to the mixture.  That is okay  because otherwise they  would all fall to the bottom of the container  and you don't  see them again until you have eatten it all.
  As the mixture cools it can  
all lump together.  As it cools I usually go around and spearate it a little.
