Baking on a Budget from HERSHEY'S Kitchens

[ Music ] >> Welcome to Hershey's Kitchens, I'm Linda Stahl. Today we're going to be talking
about baking on a budget. Flour and sugar come in a lot of
different sizes. Flour comes in 2-pound, 5-pound, 10-pound and
higher sized containers. The same thing for sugar, you've got two, four, five, ten, and
higher. Usually the larger the package size, the lower the cost
per ounce. Flour can be stored in the freezer for up to a year and
sugar will keep almost indefinitely as long as it is dry and away from anything that will
transfer an odor to it. When you're shopping for leaveners such as
baking soda or baking powder, you might want to buy the
smaller packages if you're not going to be baking a lot or baking soon, because leaveners
will lose their power over time. Cocoa can be a less expensive
alternative to baking chocolate. You get the same chocolate
flavor and cocoa will store almost indefinitely as long as it is not exposed to moisture and
odors from other foods. And look for sales of your baking mixes
and brownie mixes in the grocery store. Stock up on this
winner on sale, never underestimate what a handful Hershey's chips or syrup will do for
those baking mixes. So, for more chips and recipe ideas, go to and happy baking. [ Music ]
