School Market Day Ideas Help please?

My daughter has got her school market day in 3 weeks and she must have homemade goodies to sell.
Last time I ended up making lucky packets, cupcakes and homemade lemonade.
It cost me a fortune and she ended selling the stuff at a loss because she got tired.

Any ideas for cheap homemade goods she can make would be welcome!
I'm broke as hell so no expensive goods.
Lemonade is out, we would have to buy bottled water and the lemons are out of season and expensive right now.
My oven is also not great for baking.

Best Banana Bread I've Ever Had!!!

You could do cookies/muffins in a jar. There are lots of recipes for the same on the Internet. Our dog rescue group did dog biscuits in a jar for a breed specialty. We made 100 jars--they sold out over three days.

Chocolate Pretzels Recipe : Robin Miller : Recipes : Food Network

You could probably get this stuff from the dollar store?

the earlier post.. I guess I had halloween in my head!

OR.....Just a cheap box of brownies would work. People love brownies!
Tha banana bread would be good. When we did a breakfast for the facility I work at, my co- workers banana bread was the star of the day! (Assuming your oven could handle that stuff!)

Snip, I get brownie mix and delvis food cake mix on sale about 1.88 then with the cake mix I add mayo instead of oil and put them into a 13x9 cake pan, cut into 26 pieces and then into baggies from the 1.00 store all things I get there you come out ahead the brownies I add cinnamon,espresso powder, milk instead of water cut as i do the cake you will need to decide. But if you have a dollar store go there you'd be suprissed at what you 'll find. If you would like the recipes I'll PM you with them as well as the rose water, saffron ice cresm I've been hunting for.

Snip?

How many goodies is she required to bring?

Any type of restrictions? We know how p/c schools are now. Some food items are banned at a few schools around here. We can't have the food police after her.

No particular amount. It's part of her exams. She must just bring homemade food items to sell and she gets marked on her marketing skills and the profit she makes etc.
She's in a SA government school, as long as the treats don't contain razor blades she'll be allowed to sell them

Rice krispies treats are always a hit in our area. They are easy and cheap to make. Cereal, butter, marshmallows. I've seen them made with coco krispies as well as cheerios for variety. One year for preschool, I was responsible for snacks starting with the letter R. I made these and added some red food coloring to the mallow mix and made them red. With this in mind, you could maybe add some color and make them in her school colors or use the colors from your flag. If you'd like, I can post a recipe for some peanut butter/butterscotch ones too.

Thank you This sounds like a good idea, please do send the other recipes.
I buy brand name cereal for cheap at the factory. They sell the cereal with damaged boxes for less than half the price. I have a contact there. it's all Kellog's.
