I need to bake 5 recipes for a bake sale, and would like to make creative desserts that will sell well. Anyone have some unusual recipes? Smiley

Are you looking for things to sell as individual servings? Or as a whole, like a whole cake or whole pie?

For individual servings I know it sounds done, but kids really like rice krispy square. You can jazz them up, add diff candies, dried fruit, nuts, or use diff cereals. Mix fruit loops & cheerios,  or rice krispys & lucky chrams, or trix.

My mom used to use the basic rice krispy recipe on the box, but use puffed rice cereal & added a couple tablespoons peanut butter to the marshmallow then added mixed diced dried fruit & very finely grated carrot.

Cup cakes are great 1 serving treats too, again just jazz them up, add citrus rind or flavor extracts to the batter.  Try Lemon Extract in the batter with little vanilla frosting & a single lemon drop candy on top.

Or make them in the ice cream cones, the cake ones that are flat on the bottom. add sprinkles to the batter & citrus zest sprinkled on top of the frosting, just a pinch.

For whole pies or cakes try an apple pie with a pastery flaky crust & a crumble top (mix butter,brown sugar & granola for the top.)

Added: I just noteced your user name, while not technically baked, I'd buy Choclate covered Straberrys at a back sale !!

If you don't have to worry too much about allergies, you can try this:

Get some brownie mix (make it easy on yourself!).  Mix it up as usual, but add 1/2 to 3/4 cup Nutella, plus some chopped toasted nuts.  I make a homemade version if I'm not feeding a crowd, but for something like a bake sale, I would just buy the mix.  It's really tasty.

Oh, and I make cereal-marshmallow squares with Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs cereal, but Cocoa Crispies would be good too.

I've heard of doing the rice krispies treats with fruity pebbles instead.  Those might go over well because of the bright colors.  Is the bake sale near any holidays? maybe you could play off that...

When I was a kid my mom's cupcakes were always a hit! For easier and faster baking, use boxed mixes. My mom used to make 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 vanilla. Than put frosting on the cupcakes and add a gummy worm on top...it used to sell out so fast! Something so simple is good because you have to make 5 desserts!

Chocoate Dipped Pretzels, Baby!!! 

Technically, there's no baking required for these - but you can sell the crap out of them! We made them to sell for the Heart Association Heart Walk last month, and sold a ton! 

All you do is buy some super cheap large pretzel rods, chocolate chips (or that bark stuff), and some toppings.  We put a light coat of peanut butter on the pretzels, then dipped them in melted chocolate. Lay them on waxed paper and sprinkle your toppings - candy sprinkles, coconut, more chocolate chips, m&m's, basically anything you have lying around the house! 

We've also made them by melting caramel and dipping them in that before chocolate. They take a little while to make, but you can churn out a bunch at one go. And - most importantly - you can sell, sell, sell them! Good luck.....

I WIST I had all these super cool things!

See you in the clouds, sweet little Jackson.

Cupcake cones were always a huge hit at my sons bake sales, so were cookies with popsicle sticks baked into them.

My mother-in-law used to bake cupcakes and once they were cool, she would cut a cone shape out of the middle with a sharp knife and put three mini marshmellows inside and a dab of frosting. She replaced the cone shape and frosted as usual. So when you bite into it, the gooey marshmellows and frosting would make ur tummy say yummy.

She also made chocolate brownies and frosted them with chocolate frosting...all homemade of course...no mixes for this woman!!

I would make Five Layer Bars, look on www.recipezaar.com. They are rich and delicious and easy to make. Chocolate dipped large strawberries are a hit. Good Luck!

One moment can change everything!
