Do you want to wow your family with homemade Christmas treats but lack either the time or the skill? These 5 No Bake Christmas recipes can help you solve both those problems. In just one afternoon you can create several trays of delicious Christmas treats that you can either bring to a Christmas party, serve to your own holiday guests or divide them up to give as gifts.  All without having to turn on your oven.

No Bake Christmas treats: A list of 5 no bake recipes that make great Christmas gifts.


My 10-year-old daughter and I made all the recipes below to bring to our church’s annual Thanksgiving feast.

When all the work was done we had 2 heaping trays full of goodies to share with our church friends.  While filling the trays I realized something – I had not turned on the oven at all. I also realized we had made them all in just over an hour.  I had a ton of yummy holiday delights that could easily be given as gifts that required very little baking skills.

If you can run a microwave and stir a pot you can make everything in this  No Bake Christmas series.

These recipes all use simple ingredients that you can find in any grocery store – in fact, most of the ingredients might be in your cupboard right now. Yep, chances are you can make at least one of these recipes, if not more without even having to run out to the grocery store for the ingredients. That makes these recipes great for those “oh no I forgot we had to bring a plate of goodies to the Christmas party tonight” emergencies.  You might just want to take a second to pin them to your Pinterest boards for such occasions.

The types of ingredients you need to make all 5  no bake Christmas recipes

The links to all 5 of the simple recipes are near the end of this post. You can use them to find out exactly what you need for each individual recipes but I thought it might be handy for you to see what you would need to make all 5. That way you could make a quick list and spend an hour or so making up all the recipes for either a Christmas feast or to give as gifts.

The only tools you need to make the 5 no bake Christmas recipes

OH and a microwave (although I think most recipes that require one could be adapted with a bit of experimentation to use the stove top only if you prefer.

What you don’t need is a candy thermometer – remember these recipes are no-fuss!

  1. What a great idea! Living in a motorhome, I often find it quite hard to cook or bake anything. This, however, gives me no excuse NOT to bring anything to Christmas dinner!! 🙂

    • Yes, these are great recipes for people with tiny kitchens. I started making some of them back when we lived a year with just a toaster oven as our only oven.

  2. OOOOO – You are my kinda gal! I am excited to see this and can’t wait to check out all these yummy treats. Thanks so much for linking up at Weekend Potluck! Have a great weekend.
