I started a new series this year called Baking on a Budget using 5 ingredients or less! In addition I try to spend less than $10 for the recipe. The reason why I started this series is because baking is quite expensive, I probably spend at least $50-$70 purchasing ingredients every month. That’s a whole lot! Let me give you an example, butter is usually $4.99 a pack and I usually use one whole package a week to make cookies for my Cookie Mondays. So it adds up, maybe in a future blog I can break down all the prices.
Anyways, I mentioned in the video I will break down the cost of this recipe so here it is.
Oreo (14.30z) $2.99
Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chips (120z) $2.69
Nestle Toll House White Chocolate Chips (12oz) $2.69
Crunch Peanut Butter (I had some at my house)
How much do you spend on ingredients? Let me know in the comments!
