Posted By Tipnut On September 7, 2011 @ 12:20 pm In Recipes | 7 Comments
Looking for some inspiration on what to make for a bake sale? This is the list for you!
If you have children in school, involved with team sports or support local community groups and churches, chances are you’ll take part in this popular method of fundraising.
Here are dozens ideas that I’ve handpicked from around the net with many that are quick & easy to whip up.
I’ve also tucked in a few suggestions for packaging (including a few free printables), you’ll find those at the bottom of the page. Have fun!
Brownie Pops : Simply cut squares of brownies, add a stick and dip in chocolate and sprinkles.
Chex Lemon Buddies : Made with Rice Chex cereal, white vanilla baking chips, butter, grated lemon peel, fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar.
Lollipop Cookies : A batch of dough is divided into thirds to be tinted in the colors of your choosing then stacked and rolled together before baking.
Pink Peanut Butter Hugs : Based on a peanut butter ball, dough is tinted with red food coloring, coated with pink sugar and topped with a Hershey’s hug.
Tie-Dye Bars : Includes both recipe for the bars & instructions for frosting, these are done in a jelly-roll pan then sliced into bars.
Frog Bites : Two-bite brownies are placed in paper liners and decorated with frosting, sprinkles and candy pieces (held in place with toothpicks).
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies : Mini-peanut butter cups are pressed into each ball (when hot from the oven).
Lemon Coconut Crackles : Made with a box of cake mix and Cool Whip, dough is shaped into balls and rolled in powdered sugar before baking.
Layered Bars : A 5-ingredient recipe (uses a fudge cake mix), miniature candy-coated chocolate and caramels.
Mini Whoopie Pies : Made with Devil’s Food Cake Mix, filled with cream cheese and vanilla frosting.
Peppermint Bark : Always a hit and so easy to make! Here are a few different versions to try.
Deluxe Caramel Corn : A colorful crunchy snack made with popcorn, miniature pretzels, salted peanuts, gumdrops, Skittles and more.
Sugar Cookie Bars : Easy to make and they look pretty too!
