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’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Challenge was one of our most popular challenges to date! Over 7,000 cookies were baked in total across our community!

Stay tuned for a recap post on that challenge soon, where I’ll also be announcing the winners.

This month I wanted to feature a recipe that’s perfect for summer.

June’s recipe pick is…

Raspberry Lemonade Cheesecake Bars!

These beautifully vibrant bars are bursting with fresh, slightly tart, and sweet flavors. You need to make them asap!

When the weather starts to warm up to me there’s nothing like something fresh, bright, sweet, and tangy. I clearly LOVE lemon and I hope you do too!

Here’s how to participate in this challenge:

(Read completely!)

Step 1: Make a batch of Raspberry Lemonade Cheesecake Bars.

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 an optional bonus entries to increase your chances of winning! Simply leave a star recipe rating comment on the blog post using the same name and email you use to submit your photo.


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

Anyone who can shop with Amazon around the world is eligible to win. I will purchase the gift card through your country’s Amazon website in the equivalent of $75 USD value according to current market rates.

The two 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 cheesecake bars 🙂
