When it comes to bake sale recipes, or potluck recipes or any gathering where people bring food to share, it’s always a good idea to choose crowd-pleasing recipes that are also easy to transport. Here are some types of recipes that are sure to be a hit at your next gathering:

Classic desserts

Time-tested desserts like chocolate chip cookies, brownies, blondies and rice krispie treats are always popular choices. They’re easy to make in large batches and appeal to a wide range of tastes.

“Mini” treats

Mini versions of classic desserts, such as mini cupcakes, cake pops or bite-sized brownies, are perfect for sampling and sharing at gatherings.

Bars and squares

Bar cookies and squares or pan baked squares are easy to portion and transport, making them ideal for potlucks and bake sales.

Fruit desserts

Fruit-based desserts such as fruit crumbles, cobblers or fruit skewers with a yogurt dip are a refreshing and lighter option for those who prefer something less sweet.

Decorated sugar cookies

Decorated sugar cookies are not only delicious but also versatile for any occasion. Use cookie cutters to create shapes that match the theme of the event, and decorate them with colorful icing or sprinkles.

Savoury baked goods

Don’t forget about savoury options! Savoury baked goods like cheese scones are a welcome addition to any potluck or bake sale spread.

Whichever bake sale recipes or potluck items you choose, be sure to label your baked goods with ingredients and any potential allergens (including nuts and eggs). And don’t forget to bring along copies of the recipe to share with anyone who asks for it!
