I recently helped out with a bake sale with the teenage girls at church to raise money for summer camp. We received so many generous donations from our congregation, and our fundraiser was a huge success! One of the girls’ grandmother donated two large trays of rice krispies treats. We’ve all had them, right? So good, and so simple, and they really don’t need any embellishments. HOWEVER, the ones she brought were thick, spongy, and so incredibly good. They were one of the first items to sell out and I made sure to buy one for my girls to share before they were all gone! These spongy rice krispies treats have changed my life—maybe that’s an exaggeration. They definitely changed the way I make the iconic treats and are SO MUCH BETTER.

How much should I sell the Rice Krispies treats for at a bake sale?
I’d say these could easily go for $1.00. They are large, individually packaged and are a great value.
Can I make these Rice Krispies treats ahead of time?
You can make these a day before and wrap them to keep them fresh.
What sells best at bake sales?
Presentation is everything. We recently went to a dessert auction for our local scout troop. I brought jumbo chocolate chip cookies, individually wrapped, and placed in an inexpensive $2 basket. I made a quick label and wouldn’t you know? That basket of cookies was auctioned off for $50 when plates of cookies next to it went for $10-$15. Were my cookies better? Probably not, but they were packaged to sell vs. set on a paper plate with plastic wrap.
Large cupcakes, big cookies, jumbo Rice Krispies treats.
Desserts dipped in chocolate:
Chocolate strawberries, chocolate dipped marshmallows, chocolate dipped cookies. These looks fancy and will go quickly as well.
