The best (no-bake) cookies for Santa

Kelly Key

Just like any holiday guest, if Santa Claus is coming over, you have to feed him! Of course, St. Nick’s favorite meal is a plate of cookies. If the thought of more holiday baking makes you feel faint, or you just need a quick and impressive treat for a last-minute gathering, we’ve rounded up our favorite no-bake cookies. These also make great activities to share with the children in your home.

No-Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Cookies

A staple growing up because there was always an excellent chance my mom had everything in the pantry ready to make this dessert. Chocolate, peanut butter, and oatmeal… what else do you need? Simply mix ingredients on the stove-top and drop on parchment paper to cool on the counter.

Oreo Truffles

Take an already amazing cookie and in a few steps you have the ultimate truffles. Add sprinkles for a festive flair or coase sea salt for a more intense chocolate flavor. These can be easily customized to use any kind of sandwich cookies.

3-Ingredient Tag-alongs

The kids will love helping you “cook” this fantastic treat, but don’t be surprised if a few bites of one or more of the (only) three ingredients goes missing along the way.

Holiday Popcorn

Need a break from all the holiday cookies? This gourmet-inspired (but very simple) idea takes an ordinary snack to the next level with the addition sweet and salty toppings. Perfect for a night of watching your favorite holiday movies!

Reindeer Food

Don’t forget about Santa’s reindeer! This fun and colorful snack will make sure none of Santa’s crew feel left out. The best part – you don’t have to be a reindeer to love this addictive treat!
