A friend of mine is planning to sell baked goods at a local craft fair. She asked me for suggestions on how many goodies to make. I havent done a bake sale in 20 years (I was 5 at the time, LOL! Or maybe I just acted like a 5 yr old, I don't remember LOL!), so Im no help. Any thoughts?

So far shes thinking of pumpkin spice muffins, choc chip cookies, choc dipped marshmallows and RK Treats. She also thought about selling bottled water. Thanks for any suggestions.

You could sell cupcakes or mini cupcakes as well. Or possibly offer some cookies decorated with RI. Or pretzels dipped in chocolate.

I think selling water is good idea as well.

Are you asking how many she needs to make total or how many different types?

If she is wondering how many she needs to make she needs to find out what her foot traffic will be like. The person running the fair should be able to give her an estimate of attendees. Also, will there be other bakers there? How many? Where will her location be? Location, location, location. She needs to start with the factual numbers and go from there.

I thought of some more. What about brownies or pieces of fudge?

Chocolate popcorn or kettle corn is good. I did kettle corn at a bake sale and it sold out (we put a small bowl with samples). We packed them in the 2 sizes of baggies (the kind you have to tie closed); the sandwich size is good for one person and the larger one is good to share.

The Kettle Corn gets made in a Whirly Pop popper; the instructions come with the popper.

For the chocolate popcorn, just melt some candy melts, drizzle over the already popped corn, spread on wax paper to cool, then break apart and package. Do different colors separately, then you can combine them in the bags.

Chocolate covered marshmallows are good too.
