Reindeer Chocolate Covered Strawberries
No bake reindeer berries are easy to make and are somewhat a healthy snack! Pretzels are used for the antlers and the face is made with red candy and candy eyes. The instructions recommend a double boiler, but if you use higher quality chocolate you can just melt it in the microwave.
Christmas Rocky Road
This may not be your traditional rocky road, but it has the same great flavors with all the chocolate and marshmallows! No baking required and while it calls for almonds, sometimes schools don’t want you to bring in baked items with nuts. So you can leave those out if that’s the case.
Christmas Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies
These 4 ingredient Christmas cake mix cookies are ones that kids will love! Once you get the cookie dough all rolled out, top with red and green sprinkles for more Christmas cheer!
Hot Chocolate Muffins
Hot chocolate is a flavor of the season and even better when it’s in a muffin! These freeze well so you could bake them ahead of time and let them thaw before the school party. They are ready in less than 30 minutes!
Sugar Cookie Dough Bark
This Christmas recipe combines edible sugar cookie dough with the famous chocolate bark to make a festive and easy sweet treat! The bark has swirls of red, green, and white giving all of the holiday vibes! So not only tasty but pretty too!
While these from scratch brownies are already festive, you could use cookie cutters instead of cutting them into squares. The reindeer face is simple and made with candy eyes, mini m&ms, and pretzels for the antlers! You will definitely have help making these, kids love adding the final touches.
Think of this treat as the best sweet and salty mix with vibrant red and green colors! The whole recipe is made in the microwave and is super cute when you wrap it in a Christmas tin or cellophane bag. They use candy cane kisses, if you don’t like peppermint just go with the white ones instead.
You’ll only need 3 ingredients to make these Santas! Simply cut the berries in half, pipe white frosting in between then place the top back on. Black icing gel is used for the eyes.
When you are running short on time and need something quick, go with Grinch pretzels! Even though they are so easy to make everyone loves how they look, I promise they will be a hit. Just grab some light green candy melts (or die white chocolate with food coloring), pretzels, and small candy hearts.
No-Bake Christmas Marshmallow Treats With Oreos
The combo of gooey marshmallows covered in chocolate and poured over Oreos is making my mouth water! Similar to Rice Krispie Treats but better and the sprinkles are really festive! They take about an hour to make, but are totally worth it.
Easy Sugar Cookie Recipe
To make the homemade cookie dough all you need are pantry staples. The icing is super simple to make as well and doesn’t require meringue powder, which is a plus because most don’t have that on hand. Let the kids join in the decorating fun! This recipe makes 48 so definitely enough for one classroom!
Christmas Tree Rice Krispie Treats Recipe
Students are going to go crazy with these ridiculously easy-to-make Christmas trees! Super festive and no fancy skills required! They actually hold their shape well! You can use this same recipe to make other Christmas-themed treats.
Easy Rolo & Pretzel Rudolph Noses
You can make a ton of these treats at one time when you use a large baking sheet. Add the pretzels, top with a Rolo candy, and bake for 4 minutes. When they are done gently push down a red mini m&m for the nose.
Fruit Grinch Kabobs
If you are looking for a healthier treat, these are fun to make and easy. Depending on the ages of the kids, you will have to be cautious with the type of skewer you use. Also, since these are made with banana slices you will want to make them just before school so they don’t turn really brown.
Reindeer Chow Recipe
These are easy festive Muddy Buddies! If you haven’t had the chance to try these, you have been warned they are very addicting! You’ll need Chex cereal, chocolate chips, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and red and green m&ms. Overall the recipe is really simple and goes a long way!
Santa Hat Cupcakes
Talk about adorable! Santa hat cupcakes are so cute and look Pinterest-worthy, except you don’t need decorating skills to make these. The hat is created with icing that comes in a pouch, with a piping tip. So bake the cupcakes, let them cool, add the frosting, then place the marshmallows on.
Nutter Butter Snowmen
Another super easy but oh so cute school Christmas treat. Dip the Nutter Butters in white chocolate then decorate with candies! If you are worried about nuts, you can also make these with Oreos or other sandwich cookies.
This one is so simple it almost shouldn’t even be a recipe! All you have to do is melt the chocolate, dye it, and spread it on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Add the red candy hearts then break or cut apart once the chocolate has set!
Hot Cocoa Cookies
Filled with your favorite warm holiday beverage flavors, this cookie will be a hit! Once they have finished baking, you spoon on the homemade glaze and add the festive sprinkles!
With this big list of the easiest Christmas school treats you won’t have to search for what you are bringing to the holiday party!
