Valentine’s Bagels with 2 Homemade Spread Recipes

Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you celebrating? It will be pretty quiet here after we exchange cards and have a special breakfast. And somehow I got assigned to bring snacks for Caroline and Henry’s preschool teachers today. I’m not sure why the teachers need snacks. And on Valentine’s Day? Yeah, no pressure there.

Bagel Spread Recipes

On the snack menu: bagels and box brownies. But that seemed a little sad. A plain bagel? On Valentine’s? These teachers are putting up with Henry 3 days a week – they deserve something special! Admittedly I was a straight A student in school so the overachiever in me comes out when trying to impress teachers.

My first thought was, “Well, I’ll get them some yummy coffee creamer and cream cheese.” And my second thought was, “Wouldn’t those two things be even yummier together?!”

And the answer is, yes, in fact, they are. Gold star!

Raspberry Cinnabon Cream Cheese

1/4 cup cream cheese

3-4 tablespoons International Delight Cinnabon Creamer

2-3 tablespoons raspberry jam

Put everything in a bowl and mix well. If the consistency gets too runny, just add more cream cheese.

Raspberry Cream Cheese and Peanut Butter Chocolate Bagel Spread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Caramel Spread

1/4 cup peanut butter (I used soy nut butter because it is a nut free school. But peanut butter would taste even better.)

3-4 tablespoons International Delight Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel Creamer

1-2 tablespoons chopped chocolate chips

Put everything in a bowl and mix well. Since the peanut butter is thicker than the cream cheese you might need more liquid to get to an easily spreadable consistency. I added a bit more liquid after I took these pictures because it was looking a little thick.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Bagels

Cutting heart shapes in the middle of your bagels is optional. But it does add a festive touch, don’t you think?

    Bagels & cream cheese are one of my favorite breakfast indulgences. You are totally killing me with that peanut butter spread though. OMG! I don’t think it’s going to make it to a bagel because I’m just going to eat it with a spoon…

      Very true – I tried to get Henry to eat a bagel with some of that spread on there. He licked it off and had me put on more 3 times and never ate one bite of the bagel. Little stinker. :)

      You totally need snacks! I would be dead by 10am. This school is weird in that we (the moms) can’t bring snacks for the kids but we can for the teachers – probably some sort of state regulation thing. But I didn’t know you were a preschool teacher!
