Welcome to my Holiday Bake Sale to raise money for Team In Training!
As you probably know, Mal and I are training for the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon in January with Team In Training. We’ve already raised $6,500 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (thanks to many of you!), but we know we can do better. Our goal is $8,000!!
I hope your sweet tooth is ready! Listed below are a bunch of delicious treats, contributed by CNC readers, which are ready to be bid on and shipped straight to you to enjoy!
Before you start bidding, please review the Rules & Logistics. All funds raised from the Holiday Bake Sale will go directly to Team in Training to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Let the bidding begin!!!
Tina’s Peppermint Mocha Fudge
Winner can choose Chocolate, Blonde or Super Roon (maca, cacao nibs and goji berries).
Laurie’s Chocolate Chip, Coconut, and Pecan Pie
This delicious pie features the holy trinity of baked goods: Pecans, Chocolate, and Coconut. Enough said, right? It’s tastes even better topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Amanda’s Gluten Free Nut Butter No Flour Chocolate Brownies
These brownies are made with an entire jar of nut butter instead of any kind of GF flour. Sweetened with agave nectar, cocoa powder and dark chocolate chunks, these treats are enjoyed by people who aren’t gluten free too!
One dozen of Mara’s cupcakes
The highest bigger will choose from any of Mara’s cupcake flavor combinations. (She can attempt vegan cupcakes, but there are no guarantees!)
Winner can choose from peanut butter or Christmas varieties.
Sugar-dusted peanut-y ball cookies
Shipping: US & Canada
Steph’s (my sister) Rolos on a Pretzel with a candy topping
Eggnog lovers, gather round – the season’s best flavor in a cookie form! These cookies smell of eggnog and spice and everything nice – perfect for enjoying with a mug of hot cocoa or double the pleasure and dip them straight into a glass of eggnog! (Recipe inspired by Eggnog Pie recipe.)
Joy’s Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies with Red Hots and Chocolate Chips (dairy-free)
Shipping: US & Canada
These delicious vegan treats are a crowd-pleaser, husband-approved and packed full of heart healthy ingredients. Winner can choose between pumpkin chocolate chip banana (pictured) or cinnamon apple raisin.
Liz’s Holiday Fudgy Bon Bons
What happens when you wrap rich chocolate cookie dough around a Hershey’s Kiss? You get a delicious fudge-like cookie! If that’s not fun enough, you get to choose the Hershey’s Kiss flavor — milk or dark chocolate, caramel, cherry, mint — it’s your call!
Heather’s Peppermint Delight Cookies
A little bit sugar cookie, a lot bit peppermint, these cookies are a perfect treat for the season! (P.S. they’re vegan-but don’t taste like it!)
Sheena’s Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Rods
Dipped in milk chocolate and decorated with red and green chocolate and many different toppings. The winner can give topping requests (candy, mints etc.) Packaged in small portions (4-6 per bag), so that the winner can use them as gifts.
Tami’s Whoopee Pies
Winner picks the flavor (chocolate, pumpkin, oatmeal, or gingerbread). Those with food allergies should not bid on this item.
Beautifully festive with crushed peppermints on top. Can be made vegan by replacing peppermints with powdered sugar.
