The Chocolate Wows (cookies) look amazing and I can't wait to try this recipe out. One of my favorites is the Whoopie pies, which are two devil's food cookies with marshmellow filling. The Praline-topped brownies would be a surefire sale. The good thing about these brownies, is that you can make and ice them for up to two weeks in advance. For all you toffee fans, the Butter-nut Toffee Crunch is wonderful. There are all types of frosting recipes to top your cupcakes with. You can mix and match and make your on delicious creation. All the items are easy to make and easy to portion for your bake sale.
