Help bake treats for a sweet cause

The DAYDREAMZ project and Kids at Work, two local non-profit organizations, are offering an afternoon of community baking and creating sweet treats for underprivileged.

“heART,” a community baking event will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Feb. 10 at the Open Door Kitchen/ at 32 Commerce St. in Frog Level.

Bring rolling pins, cookie cutters, cookie sheets, baking pans, measuring cups and spoons (to use while we bake) and friends and family members.

Ingredients needed, if you can spare, are flour (unbleached if possible), sugar (white, brown and powdered), eggs, oil and butter (only the real thing), cream, chocolate chips and bakers chocolate (semi-sweet), rice crispies cereal, marshmallow or fluff, cookie decorations (sprinkles and such).

The purpose is to have fun and make and bake sweet treats for local seniors, the homeless, and others in need to remind them they too are cared about on Valentine’s Day. For more information or to donate ingredients or funds call 828.456.3952 or 828.454.5165.
