With Christmas just days away and the season full of delicious eats, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year! But while the festive days bring about joyous times with family and good food, we can’t help but think about one thing: the sweets, particularly chocolate.

Sure, there are plenty of recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth this season, but chocolate is the most comforting of them all. Decadent, aromatic and oh-so-smooth — excuse us for not exactly having visions of sugarplums this year. Just chocolate — all the chocolate. And because the holidays pass by so quickly, we are also kind of short of time, so of course, we aim for the no-bake method.

To help you score bonus points this Christmas, consider some of our favorite no-bake chocolate treats. Not only are these festive-inspired desserts fun to make with the kids, but they also double as wonderful gifts when paired with clever packaging.
