My first bake sale contribution

My oldest daughter started kindergarten a couple weeks ago and it is a completely new world for the both of us. I am still getting used to the homework, piles of papers that come home everyday and all the upcoming school activities that need parent participation.
Tonight is back-to-school night and the PTA asked the parents to donate items for the bake sale. I originally planned on mini cheesecakes but we are going through a heat wave and I didn't feel like turning on my oven when it's 108 degrees outside. In addition, I imagined a table already filled with several types of brownies, cookies, muffins, cakes and pies and figured I'd try to contribute something other than those. Did I mention we've had triple digit weather all week and I did not want to turn on the oven?
I decided to turn to my beloved chocolate candy melts and I just happened to have some pretzels handy. I didn't feel like I had enough pretzels so I went out and bought cookies and dipped those as well.

I printed out circle tags from Paper Glitter and attached them to the pretzel and cookie bags. She has a couple free school themed circle tags and I chose the pencil design. You can download it here.

So here it is, my first contribution to a school bake sale. I'm sure this will be the first of many in my adventures through my kids' education.


  1. Those look great!! I never think to dip cookies in chocolate. And thanks for the tip on the tags!
