Dessert always makes any occasion extra special. So this holiday season, we searched for recipes that don't require an oven so you can still enjoy Christmas sweets with limited kitchen equipment. Perfect for those dormers and boarders who won't be able to go home this December. Happy Holidays and happy cooking, Candy Girls!

  1. Black and White Snowballs
    Love chocolate, nuts, and coconut? Make these and store to share with your friends. You can even wrap them up in bottles and ribbon to give away for Christmas!

  2. Cinnamon Doughnut Holes
    Make these for breakfast. Perfect with really thick hot chocolate! It will surely fill your kitchen with the warm and cozy smell of Christmas mornings.

  3. Candy Bark
    Nothing says festive like color and chocolate.  This is perfect for a quick sugar fix when you're busy finishing the last of your school requirements. Keep a batch of it stashed in an airtight container for a flash snack break.

  4. Tiramisu in a Glass
    You'll need a mixer for this, but we promise the effort will be worth it! 

  5. Easy Strawberry Napoleones
    The name of this dessert isn't a lie. It really is quite easy to make—and you can even enlist the help of friends to assemble the dessert. Makes the eating in the end even more fun!

  6. Marshmallow Cereal Bars
    When you've been up all night from Noche Buena, who has time to cook in the morning? We know this isn't exactly the healthiest of breakfasts, but it's Christmas. Treat yourself.

  7. Peanut Butter Crisp Bars
    Think of your fave peanut butter cups and mix in a bit of crunch and this is what you get! Sound good? Yup, we thought so. 

  8. Mango Sticky Rice
    What's Christmas without kakanin? Grab a mug of hot choco (you can buy one from your neighborhood cafe!) and you're set.

  9. Banana S'mores
    A fruity twist to your campfire fave. Perfect snacktime companion when you're under the covers enjoying your newly-opened presents! Wash down with a glass of milk. Yum!

  10. Peppermint-coated Truffles
    Have no idea how to finish all the candy canes you received from your classmates? Well, turn them into these Christmas truffles!
