Every time I need to provide bake sale treats, I always bake the same old boring chocolate chip cookies. It’s like my creative side goes dormant when I need it most!
I decided it would be a good idea to preserve a list of go-to bake sale ideas on the blog so I can reference it whenever I need to make something to sell.
I’m thinking a good selection of cookies, cakes, and cupcakes that I can portion individually are in order.
Best Fundraising Bake Sale Ideas
I asked a few of my blogging friends for suggestions, and boy, did they come through!
Here are some of their best recipes. I found a good variety, so I never have an excuse to be boring again! 🙂 I think there’s a good variety of easy to make desserts, non-traditional bake sale recipes, and even one no-bake option (great for hot summer days).
If you are brainstorming bake sale treats with others, don’t forget to share this list with them. Good luck with your fundraising efforts!
