I saw many ads of baking workshops for kids in the Christmas vacation. So I thought why not compile a list of MumMumTime’s recipes of “easy”, “no bake” desserts perfect for this holiday that kids and parents can try out together. It’ll be a fun, engaging activity for kids and parents alike. So without further ado, let’s start off with our list of easy Christmas desserts.
Please note: Recipes like the Oreo and Vanilla Ice Cream dessert, and Strawberry Sandwich can be done by kids with minimal adult supervision. But more supervision or help may be needed depending on the age of the children for whom this activity is planned.

No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Santa could definitely do with some healthy cookies, what say? Main ingredients for this recipe are oats, peanut butter and milk. Use organic sugar or better still honey instead of white sugar to make them even more nutritious. Milk needs to be boiled for this recipe so adult help/supervision is definitely needed for preparing these cookies.
Strawberries and Cream No Bake Cake
Gather some strawberries, whipped cream and crackers to make this super simple no-bake dessert. I had made this cake for Valentine’s and so had used a heart shaped mould. You can choose a mould of any shape; the red and white look is what we’re aiming for here.
Strawberries and Cream Sandwich
While brown bread is healthier than white one, maybe we can make an exception for this recipe. I’ve used white bread here which gives that perfect white and red look. So have white bread, whipped cream and strawberries ready, and watch the kids make this sandwich easily.
Easy Dessert Recipe using Oreo and Vanilla Ice Cream
This recipe is the simplest of all, and can be made by kids with least amount of help from parents. All you need is vanilla ice cream, oreo cookies, and some jelly candies, M&M’s or Gems for decoration. I have also used Hershey’s strawberry syrup to decorate. Give kids a free reign to decorate and create masterpieces.
Strawberry Cheese Cake Recipe
This one is the most spectacular looking of all. But it is a bit more lengthy than the others and requires quite a bit of help from parents. But it’s all worth the effort to get this three-layered yummy dessert that’s perfect for this season. This wonderful recipe was shared by a MumMumTime reader, Amala.
