One of my favorite childhood memories was the announcement of an upcoming bake sale. I not only loved purchasing fresh baked cookies, cupcakes and brownies but I loved being given the opportunity to sell these yummy baked goods. Such fun memories. So when asked by Mc Cormick if I would participate in a virtual bake sale blog tour. I couldn’t answer YES fast enough.
The McCormick Bake Sale will include six teams of six bloggers who will share recipes and compete against each other to WIN via our Pinterest boards.. This is where you the 24/7 MOMS come into play - We (I ) need your votes to win this bake sale competition. Plus you can WIN an amazing McCormick prize package as well.

To start off the Bake sale competition I headed to the recipe collection over at the McCormick Kitchens where I discovered some amazing cookie recipes just perfect for your next Bake Sale. I choose the Vanilla Rich Chocolate Chip recipe to inspire me in creating my own version of Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies being I love caramel on just about every dessert I can think of – so why not add it to my cookies.
Here is the recipe I came up with for the McCormick Bake Sale
Gooey Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Set aside. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips, walnuts and the Kraft Caramel bits.
- Drop by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

Looking for away to raise money for your child’s school this year? try your hand at hoisting a School Bake Sale with a few of my tips:
Bake Sale Tips
Use zip-loc bags and plastic storage containers to pre-package bake sale items in individual and larger portions.
Price your items to sell. Most bake sale shoppers are willing to pay $1.00 for an individual item .
Provide napkins, forks and spoons if necessary for walk away eating.
Have adequate change on hand in a cash box so you can easily make change for those who pay with larger bills.
Advertise ahead of time to get donations as well as shoppers. Be sure to post sign son day of sale so shoppers can find you.
What is your Bake sale tip or memory?
