June Baking Challenge

Recipe By Tessa Arias
June 1st, 2020

Announcing the official recipe for the June Baking Challenge! All of the details and rules for how to participate in the challenge for a chance to win one of the PRIZES are detailed below.

Today I’m announcing the recipe for the June Baking Challenge!

Last month we made Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies and it was our most POPULAR challenge to date by a long shot!!

I’ll be drawing the winners for that soon, so keep an eye on your email inbox if you joined. Once winners are confirmed they’ll be announced here on the blog and on social media, as always.

Our last two recipes have involved chocolate in a major way. Between that and the weather warming up, I thought it would be fun to do something fresh and fruity.

It requires no baking and no flour (if you’re still having a hard time finding it).

The June Baking Challenge recipe selection is…

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Bars!

This recipe is vibrant and fruity both in flavor and texture. It can also be made far in advance… if it lasts that long 😉

Here’s how to participate in this challenge:

(Read completely!)

Step 1: Make the No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Bars recipe.

Step 2: Take a photo of your bars and share it before June 30th 11:59pm MST.

Here’s how to share your photo:

Click here to access the challenge landing page. This is where you can get all the latest details, enter the challenge, and see other entries.

Click the button that says “SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY” – this will pop up a little widget where you can submit your photo:

  • You can select your entry photo from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, OR upload directly from your computer, tablet, or smart phone.

There’s also a few optional bonus entries to increase your chances of winning!


Every person who submits a photo following those directions will be entered into a random giveaway to win one of two $75 digital gift cards!

The prizes are available to anyone in the world who can shop with Amazon. I will purchase the gift card on your country’s Amazon homepage in the equivalent current market value of $75USD.

The winners will be selected randomly; so don’t worry about taking a perfect picture. Your photos may be put on display to share with my entire audience – that’s hundreds of thousands of people! I will email the winners. Winner must reply within 2 business days or a new winner will be chosen. Official rules are listed in the entry widget.

So what do you think? Are you up for the challenge? I can’t wait to see your bars!
