Pampered Chef: Fundraiser Fundraiser food ideas

    Hi everyone!

    I'm attending a fundraiser that will be a trade show like event with some home based businesses there selling to raise money for a school. I'll have a table to display product, but there won't be a cooking show, so I'm trying to think of what to have that would demonstrate some products, and make a good impression

    I was thinking of a big urn of hot cocoa and people could sprinkle the Sweet Caramel sprinkle on with whipped cream, or have cookies there with the decorator bottles filled with icing that people could try since it's the guest special.

    Can anyone think of any other ideas? I won't have access to electricity, so it has to be stuff I bring and leave out for a couple hours.

    Thanks!

    I have a feeling lots of kids would be interested in cocoa and playing w/the icing. You could make a batter bowl filled w/batter bowl brownie mix (ribbon on top)for display...looks good. If you have extra batter bowls, you can even sell them as ready made gifts. The crinkle cutter w/carrots is easy. I sometimes just get some choc. kisses and put them in a SA bowl to draw people in. I usually give away a gift certificate (files can be found here for them).

    How about the garlic parmesan dipping oil and french bread? That is quick, easy and does not require electricity.

    Your give away food if you feel you need it can be anything you want. For your easy to demo items. Just bring some potatoes or zucchini and then you can chop them, grate them, press them, slice them, micro-plane them....

    Fund-raisers are a terrific way to bring new business into your client base that is not related to existing customers. A good investment of time now would be to call small clubs and organizations and ask if they need a free speaker or a fund raiser. Both will generate sales, bookings and recruits. Don't say you are not a public speaker because if you do home parties then you are!
