No-Bake Christmas Dessert

The winter holiday season is a time for holiday parties and get-togethers. It is also a time for holiday-themed food, especially desserts. Some desserts can get complicated and take a long time. For those of us who are busy and don't have much time to bake or to make something complex, it can be a challenge finding desserts that are quick and easy to make.

This Santa hat fruit dessert is a fun solution. Using fruit means you don't have to worry about serving and eating unhealthy desserts during the holiday time. Even better, there is absolutely no baking or cooking required!

22 Santa hats


  • 22 mini marshmallows
  • 22 strawberries
  • 2 bananas


  1. Begin by gathering the strawberries and washing them. Then cut the stem off of every one of them. Put them aside.
  2. Take your bananas and slice them into medium-sized slices. Make sure you don't make them too thick. Set them aside.
  3. Take out the toothpicks and the 22 mini marshmallows. Put the marshmallows in their own dish.
  4. Pick up a toothpick, and put a marshmallow on it.
  5. Follow with a strawberry by putting the toothpick through, starting with the pointed end (non-cut side) and pushing it through.
  6. Follow with a slice of banana and push that through also.
  7. Place the finished Santa hat on a tray or serving dish. Then repeat the process until you are out of strawberries and toothpicks.
  8. Lastly, you are ready to serve it!


Wasn't that easy and quick? Hope you and everyone enjoy the festive dessert! Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
