DIY Easy Bake Oven Mixes!

How many of you bought an Easy Bake Oven as a Christmas gift?  I think every year I try and find someone to give an Easy Bake Oven.  I had one as a child, my girls had one and now I want everyone to have one.  Having an Easy Bake Oven could possibly be how The Partiologist got her start and possibly her love for chocolate! 
After gasping at the price of the mixes, I bought them anyway, because they were cute.  And because who wants an oven without anything to bake?  Now that the newness has worn off, and the mixes are probably gone, the poor child will have to wait until their birthday to start baking again...Well, not if I can help it!  I created some DIY Easy Bake Oven Mixes with...
CUTE PACKAGING!


Not only did I find the perfect box to present them in...
I made the cutest toppers complete with directions on back!
Twelve different mixes, twelve different toppers complete with directions!
After finding easy bake recipes online, I had to divide them to make one mix.  My plan was to try them out in an actual Easy Bake Oven.  By the time I finished making the labels, dividing the recipes, filling the bags, adding the toppers, etc...well, I was exhausted.  So you're going to have to give it a try and accept my apologies if it doesn't go as planned.  If all else fails, have them feed their creation to their Dad or any other unsuspecting family member.  Just remember, I did my part...they are CUTE!

Each individual mix~
12 DIY Easy Bake Oven Recipes and Labels
Coconut Snowball Cookies
Oatmeal Cookies
Chocolate Sprinkle Truffles
S'mores
Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
Chocolate Cake
Thumbprint Cookies
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Vanilla Frosting
Brownies
Chocolate Frosting
Sprinklicious Cake
 
If you have a mix or recipe you'd like to convert to an easy bake size,
here's a handy chart I made just for that purpose!
And printable labels so you can make cute mixes too!
The name of the mix is printed on the bottom half of the card and the directions are printed on the top half.  Just punch them out, fold and they're ready to go!
Or print on cardstock, cut and fold.
There are four mix labels on each printable.
 
First you'll need to fill the bags with these coordinating recipes~
Each recipe is for the dry ingredients to fill the bags.
Here they are printed out on Avery Index Cards.
Add them to your recipe box!
There are three recipes on each printable~
 
After filling the bags with the dry ingredients, fold over the top and staple.  Hot glue the corners down to add the topper.
Add a little hot glue across the bottom of the label.
Attach the bag to the label and add more glue to the top of the bag and seal.
One down, eleven to go...
A perfect gift for Valentine's Day!
And a couple little tags to show the Love~
In two sizes!
Punch it out and tie it on with narrow ribbon.
 
 
And of course the perfect size box to present all twelve mixes!
Soon we'll have little bakers baking all over the world! 
 
 Lovin for the Easy Bake Oven!

  1. I too had an Easy Bake Oven, but do remember not having much to bake in them. Even back in the day the mixes were expensive, so I'd get more as gifts. What you've created is wonderful and any Easy Bake Oven owner would love to have them.

  5. Genius just genius. My daughter got an EBO for Christmas and plenty of mixes to go with it. But, when they run out these will be perfect for my little baker and her mommy to do together. Most things we have on hand. I think you've got yourself a winner here. I LOVE the pink and brown tags. Your packaging is adorable. from,twobeautifulgirls

  6. Kim, you never cease to amaze me! I'm hoping that Seraphina will want an EBO when she gets older. In the meantime, I'm totally bookmarking this for years down the road ;) Hey, I do it with clothes, why not awesome ideas like this? (the largest clothing size I have for her is 4 YEARS old....I know, but it was a great clearance find! :)

    1. With you as her mom, I KNOW she will want an EBO oven! I did the same thing with clothes for my girls - always bought when they were on sale for years ahead!! :)

  7. Any chance you could make some labels for little boys? My boys got an easy bake for Christmas as they love to bake like mommy, but they probably wouldn't like the girly colors and designs. If you could that would be awesome! Thank you either way for the recipes and printables. They're just what we need!

  13. This is the greatest idea!! I always wanted an EBO, but my mom said the cake mixes were too expensive (cue the violin . . . ) You went the extra mile by providing the labels, too!!! You're awesome, Kim :)

  15. I thought, at first, that you were selling these little kits! I was so surprised when I realized that you were giving this Step Mom the instructions and downloadable ability so I can make it myself for my new 'daughter'! You are clever, generous, and a super nice person all the way around!
