Merry Christmas, Dear Reader! Is it too early to say that? I know when it comes to Christmas there are those who hate everything about it and then there are people like me who live and breathe it for months leading up to the actual day. Those of us who love it all feel the same way – it comes and goes so quickly. That’s why I put together this list of 30 No Bake Christmas Recipes!

Just like there are people who don’t care much for Christmas, there are also people who don’t care much for baking. They want to get into the kitchen and out of it as soon as possible. In fact, they would like not to be in there at all! So, the recipes here will ensure that you don’t have to turn on the oven and bake cookies. These recipes are prepared using a microwave or a stovetop, and they are quick and easy too. Are you ready? Let’s get into it!

I’ve taken the liberty of breaking down recipes into categories. Some of them might overlap with other categories, but I’ve tried to keep them tied to just one. No room for duplicates here! On the backend, I’ve done all the work for you. As soon as you see a picture of a food item that you like, just click on it. A new window will open in your browser so that you don’t lose your place on this page. No searching, no downloading, each and every recipe is just a click away.
