Bake Sale Recipes

I shared yesterday that Pinterest helped me with my recent panic in needing to provide some treats for a bake sale.  It armed me with a bunch of recipes, but I ended up going with these:

truffles with words

I know the latest craze is those cake balls on a stick.  These are a really simple NO BAKE version.  You can find the recipe here.  I couldn’t find the special lollipop sticks, but discovered wooden coffee stir sticks work just fine.

cake batter truffles

They are really sweet, so I made them small.  The recipe calls for dipping them in white chocolate, but I opted for Jersey Milk Milk Chocolate bars instead.

And while I had chocolate and sprinkles already out, I also made these:

rice krispys with words

They are the original Rice Krispy Treats recipe (found here) dipped in the same Jersey Milk Milk Chocolate bars, with sprinkles sprinkled over the top.  The nifty little square ziploc bags were found at the Dollar Store.

Now I would LOVE to know what your go-to recipes are for Bake Sale treats.  Could you drop me a quick note in the comment section if you have a minute?  We’re not allowed to provide treats with peanut butter due to severe allergies.  That trips me up every time.

Thanks in advance for your inspiring ideas!Smile

    Rita, my friend Kristin runs the Bakeshop at our Market. She is a registered dietician and baker-extraordinaire…she says these always sell well. She leaves out the walnuts due to expense (but says they add a nice flavor), and she slightly under bakes them to keep them moist. She sold them on plates of two, maybe 2-1/2 to 3″ square, for $1.50. I like how you packaged your rice krispie treats individually…maybe the economy is even better up there. 🙂 You, as always, are amazing. I think I might just need to bake some of these today for lunches. Why don’t you come for coffee this afternoon???

  2. One of my faves are Nitey Nites. Simple meringue recipe that you just mix and drop on cookie sheets (use parchment or foil). Best part is you don’t need to watch it, just place in pre-heated oven, turn off the oven and go to bed! When you wake up, you just place the cookies in containers. Best part is you can add candied fruit, chocolate chips, nuts or whatever you have on hand. You can even dye them for different holidays.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    2 egg whites (room temperature)
    3/4 Cup sugar
    1 teaspoon Vanilla or Almond extract
    1 Cup chocolate chips *
    1 Cup chopped nuts (optional)

    Beat egg whites until foamy and slowly mix in sugar until well mixed (stiff peaks). Fold in by hand your extract, chips and nuts.

    Drop cookies onto foil or parchment lined sheets and place in preheated oven. TURN OFF HEAT. Leave in closed oven at least six hours (overnight is best) and DO NOT OVPEN THE DOOR.

    Peel cookies off parchment or foil and garnish as desired.

    You can use: butterscotch, crushed peppermint, M & M’s (minis are the best), candied fruit, different types of nuts. They’re easy to dip in melted chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint or sprinkles.

    Quick and easy and you definitely can’t eat just one!
