No-Bake Christmas Treat #1: Caramel Puffcorn
Caramel Puffcorn (pictured above) isn’t just for the holidays– kids and adults alike love it any time of year! However, it goes well in Christmas-themed cellophane wrappers and containers. Because there are no kernels in the corn, it’s a safer treat for toddlers and preschoolers to eat.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #2: Christmas Merry Munch
Christmas Merry Munch is a treat that can be made at any time during the year, but it looks especially festive with the red and green Christmas M&Ms. You can adapt it according to your taste, too, adding in your favorite nuts or chocolates.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #3: Christmas Oreo Cookie Bark
Christmas Oreo Cookie Bark is an easy, no bake Christmas treat that only calls for 2 ingredients and a few minutes of your time. Sprinkles make them festive. Substitute with store-brand cookies to save money.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #4: Chocolate Cookie Dough Truffles
These Chocolate Cookie Dough Truffles will satisfy your craving for cookie dough without having to turn on the oven! Because there is no egg in the batter, no baking is required.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #5: Homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream
Homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream is a fun project to make, and give out as gifts! Be sure to do plenty of taste-testing as you go along to make it even more festive. This can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to two months.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #6: Cranberry Feta Pinwheels
Cranberry Feta Pinwheels are a tasty, savory no-bake Christmas appetizer. Just spread the topping and roll ’em up, simple and easy! The cranberries and green onion are the perfect colors for the holidays, and your tray looks even more festive with fresh cranberries as a colorful backdrop.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #7: Rice Krispies Christmas Wreaths
These Rice Krispies Holiday Wreaths were a treat my mom used to make when I was growing up. They’ve been around a long time, and are just as tasty now as they were back then.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #8: Buckeye Balls
Buckeye Balls are a candy from peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar and dipped in chocolate. What’s not to like? They’re named for their resemblance to the nut of the Ohio buckeye tree.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #9: Jell-o Popcorn
Jell-o Popcorn sounds strange, but don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it! The one pictured above uses strawberry Jell-o. You could pair with lime Jell-O for your green, and mix them together once cooled for a red-and-green holiday combo. Experiment with different flavors and colors of Jell-o.
No-Bake Christmas Treat #10: Nutter Butter Reindeer Cookies
These Nutter Butter Reindeer Cookies are so cute, nobody will want to eat them! They use the adorable Wilton Candy Eyes we think are so cute.
