How to make 8 Popular Garage Sale snacks in ONE pan (recipe/video)

Make 8 Popular Desserts in One Pan!

What if you could easily make an entire menu of popular desserts to sell at your upcoming garage sale — in a single pan? Well, you can!  I have the recipe and a video to share with you that shows how!

Selling baked goods to boost garage sale earnings is practically foolproof. Hungry shoppers hardly think twice about shelling out a buck or two for a snack and a cold cup of lemonade to keep them going.  This recipe can help you free up time to make that happen.

Stop me if you've seen it.

Garage Sale Lemonade Stand Tips - Make 8 popular desserts in ONE pan! (Recipe/Video)

8 Desserts in 1 Pan

The video I'm about to show you is BuzzFeed Tasty's, "8 Desserts in 1 Pan." It made quite a stir earlier this year (and by 'stir' I mean 3,271,836 + Views on YouTube) with a clever recipe hack that makes: Chocolate Chip Cookies, M&M Cookies, Chocolate Brownies, S'mores, Banana Bread, Cheesecake, Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie — all in one pan.

Doesn't that sound tailor made for a Garage Sale Lemonade Stand?

It's bound to be a crowd-pleaser. Not only is it a good variety and number of selections, but every dessert in the recipe is also on more than one internet Top 10 list of America's Favorite Desserts. (Ranker, LadyBehindtheCurtain, Hoosierhomemade and TopTeny, just to name a few.)

Throw in a trendy flavor of refreshing lemonade and you have a money-making menu for your next Garage Sale Lemonade Stand.

Basically, all you need is a box mix for each dessert, crust, marshmallows, an 11" x 17" baking sheet and...  drum roll... an hour and a half.

That's it.

YouTube celebrity Chef Steve Owens (8 Desserts 1 Tray - Can it be done?) clocked prep time at just 30 minutes and the recipe calls for you to bake the entire tray of desserts for an hour.

The video is very entertaining, too.

Take a look:


Yields: 20 servings


2 cups of chocolate chip cookie dough
2 cups of cookie dough, m&m
2 cups of brownie mix, prepared with half of the recommended water
8 sheets graham cracker
4 oz of chocolate
1 cup of mini marshmallows
3 sheets pie crust
2 cups of apple pie filling
2 cups of pumpkin pie filling
2 cups of banana bread batter
2 cups of cheesecake batter


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).
  2. Spray a baking tray with cooking spray, then line it with a piece of parchment that extends past the sides. These will be the handles to lift out the dessert.
  3. Visually dividing the pan into 8 equal rectangles, shape the chocolate chip cookie dough into a flat, even, rectangular shape that fits the divided section in the top left corner, making sure the edges are as straight and sharp as possible.
  4. Shape the m&m cookie dough into a similar rectangle in the section diagonally across from the chocolate chip cookie dough.
  5. Break the graham cracker sheets along their seams into pieces that are just as long as the cookie dough rectangles. Press them to form a wall in the bottom left section.
  6. Place 2 full graham cracker sheets in bottom of the section.
  7. Layer the chocolate evenly on top.
  8. Spread the marshmallows across the chocolate.
  9. In the section directly to the right of the chocolate chip cookie dough, carefully spread the brownie batter into a similar rectangular shape.
  10. Roll two of the pie crusts together with about a 3-inch overlap, then trim it into a rectangle.
  11. On the far right side of the pan, lay the rectangular sheet of pie crust over where the 2 rightmost sections would be. Press the pie crust into the edges of the pan, then trim off any excess that goes beyond the pan.
  12. Place a double layer strip of pie crust in the middle, creasing the dough near the bottom into the pie crust that was laid down in order to help it stick and stay up.
  13. Seal off the left exposed edge of the pie crust with another double strip of pie crust. You should now have 2 rectangles completely enclosed in pie crust.
  14. If the brownie mix has spread a little bit, push it back into its original rectangular shape.
  15. Add the apple pie filling to the bottom right square.
  16. Add the pumpkin pie filling to the top right square.
  17. Immediately spread the banana bread batter into the section between the brownie and the pie crust.
  18. Breaking another graham cracker sheet into pieces, form another wall along the bottom of the banana bread rectangle and the right of the m&m cookie dough.
  19. Lay down 2 more sheets of graham crackers inside that rectangle to form a base, then evenly spread the cheesecake batter on top.
  20. Bake for 1 hour.
  21. Cool completely, then slowly and carefully lift the entire dessert out using the parchment paper handles. Immediately transfer to a large cutting board.
  22. Make 8 evenly-spaced slices vertically and 4 slices horizontally, creating bars that are have 1, 2, or 4 flavors.
  23. Enjoy!
