Ever contributed to a bake sale?? *UPDATE*

 There's a bake sale fundraiser going on for the kids' school this weekend and I've been asked to supply some baked goods, pre-wrapped and labeled for sale, to the cause. Last time, we were able to send prepackaged, store-bought goods, but this time it's taking place in front of a supermarket so everything must be homemade and I'm at a loss as to what to make.

I'm not one of those Pinteresty moms who wants to go overboard with everything, lol. I just want to do something cheap, tasty, easy to bake, and easy to sell.

Any ideas for what to make and how much to price it for a school fundraiser?

*UPDATE* I wound up making brownies and Oreo cupcakes and pricing everything for $1. Everything sold out quickly and customers clamored for more. It was a huge success with the bake sale earning nearly $600! Thanks for all your ideas! :)

No bakes.  Super easy and absolutely delicious.

Do some rice krispy treats on a stick, dipped in chocolate with sprinkles.  They could sell for $1 each.  And they are easy, fun to make, and will sell like hotcakes.

You can always cheat and buy the grocery store bakery cookies and repackage them. Put two or three in those cellophane goodie bags with some ribbon in the school colors. Or make s'mores sets. Use the cellophane bags and package up a marshmallow, piece of a Hershey bar and 2 graham crackers. We did a few bake sales for our cheer team in the fall and the s'mores were big sellers. One of the other big sellers was the cupcakes or cookies made with the boxed Reese's mix. They are yummy.  I love to bake from scratch, but those Reese's cookies are delicious and taste homemade. Put whatever you decide to bring in a nice basket or cutesy box to give it the homemade feel, even if it's not.

Cake mix cookies. It doesn't get any easier and they are really good. Do out of the norm flavors, they always get a lot of attention.

I make cookies every August for the school supply fundraiser my church does. Just regular cookies. Sugar, oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip, peanut butter and then I make a batch of vegan cookies with craisins (half have dark chocolate)

Brownies or cookie bars are always a good bet.
