23 No-Bake Christmas Treats for 2023

It’s getting close to Christmas. You’re tired. But you’ve still got some baking obligations. You need that one last thing to take to the party. What can you whip up in a hurry? Read this post for 23 amazing ideas!

If you’re like most folks, you love holiday baking. But let’s face it: sometimes it can get overwhelming. About three years ago I faced this problem when I overcommitted myself during the Christmas season. I baked so much that I ended up getting sick. It took a while to recover.

I’d like to say I’ve learned how to pace myself, but If you know me in person (cough-cough) you know it ain’t true. I’m just as busy as ever. But I’m a huge fan of putting together recipes that are fast, easy, and can feed a crew.

That’s why I decided I would dedicate an entire post to no-bake Christmas treats.

Why Go with a No-Bake Dessert?

Let’s talk about that. It’s not just about convenience. There are other reasons to whip up no-bake desserts.

  1. Because they don’t require baking, they usually don’t take as long. If you get home from work at 5:30 and need a sweet treat to take to a party at 7:30 there’s just not time to make that delicious cake you’d hoped to bake. No-bake treats can come together in minutes.
  2. You can use up leftover ingredients. You’ve got tubs of peanut butter left over from all those cookies? No problem. Just use it to make some delicious snowballs (peanut butter balls). You get the idea. Those leftover bits and pieces can merge forces to create yummy candies, no bake cookies, bars, and so on.
  3. No electricity or gas required. No doubt your oven’s been running all holiday season long! It’s time to give that baby a rest! These no-bake treats won’t have you reaching to turn on the oven.
  4. Individual portions: Most of these no-bake offerings are in individual serving sizes. You won’t be hauling a huge tiered cake to your event after all.
  5. Kid Friendly: Because there’s no baking involved, you can get the kids onboard to help with most of these. They’re going to love the process. . .and the outcome!

There are hundreds of other reasons why you might opt for no-bake desserts, but for now, let’s just get right to it. In this post you’ll find 23 no-bake options for Christmas 2023!
