  • Gingerbread – Along with candy canes and chocolate Santas, gingerbreads are also one of the most popular and traditional holiday candy that you will see everywhere. What’s more is that you can build your own gingerbread house which is a well-known Christmas tradition.
  • Hershey’s Kisses – Hershey’s Kisses also go on-theme once December arrives! These little, delicious chocolates are perfect for stocking stuffer or gifts!

No-bake cookies

If you do not have any oven at home, then do not worry because you can still have your fair share of no-bake cookies that are just as delicious as the baked ones! A good thing about this is you can freely let your kids help you make these cookies without worrying over the fact that they may burn or hurt themselves by getting near the oven. Another good thing about no-bake cookies is that they have a long shelf life compared to baked cookies. Once they have fully set, transfer them to an airtight container, with the layers separated by parchment, and they will keep at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

And lastly, no-bake cookies require fewer ingredients and lesser time to prepare and cook! Here is how you can make classic no-bake cookies for the holidays:


1 ¾ cups white sugar

½ cup milk

½ cup butter

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

½ cup crunchy peanut butter

3 cups quick-cooking oats

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 ½ minute. Remove from the heat and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool until hardened. And you’re done!
