1. Strawberry Granola Yogurt Parfait

Layers of Greek yogurt, strawberries, and crunchy granola make a perfectly delicious mid-day snack.

It’s incredibly yummy!

This delight has a sweet taste and juicy texture from strawberries and crunchy, crispy indulgence from granola, while Greek yogurt adds a creamy and tangy flavor. 

2. Caramel Popcorn Balls

Nothing beats these caramel popcorn balls when it comes to quick sweet snacks. 

They only take 15 minutes from start to finish!

Enjoy these popcorn balls later or the next day by storing them in a plastic wrap or airtight container. 

Too gooey? Add more popcorn!

3. Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

Another straightforward sweet treats recipe to try is this decadent chocolate peanut butter chia pudding featuring honey and vanilla. 

What I like about this chia pudding treat is that it can be enjoyed as is or topped with berries, chocolate chips, or nuts.

4. Deep Fried Mars Bars

This recipe serves four, so it’s best to double it as these bars are bound to disappear in just seconds. They have a lovely crunch with gooey inside. Yum!

And when you partner them with vanilla ice cream? P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N!

5. Peanut Butter Bars

If you have a craving for nutty, crispy, and delicious at the same time, then you don’t need to look any further—these peanut butter bars have got your back!

Best served chilled alongside coffee or tea, and these bars can last long for up to a week when stored in your refrigerator. 

Don’t forget to drizzle chocolate spread on top!

6. No-Bake Lime Cheesecake

The best part about this sweet snack is that you don’t have to heat the oven, prepare a water bath, or worry about cracks on the surface!

This no-bake cheesecake has a thick ginger-rich cookie crust and a light, fresh, and citrusy filling. 

This combo is a match made in heaven. 

7. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

This 5-ingredient recipe starts with devil’s chocolate cake cake mix and ends with nutty, chocolaty cookies that are destined to be devoured as snacks or desserts. 

Plus, the whole making process takes just 17 minutes.

Make these cookies extraordinary by glazing them with melted peanut butter and powdered sugar.

8. Strawberry Chia Pudding

Strawberry season? How about making this strawberry chia pudding featuring five basic ingredients? 

Filled with fresh strawberries and sweetened with maple syrup and vanilla extract, it’s one of those sweet treats that are worth including on your snack table.

9. Cake Mix Snickerdoodles

These treats start with an easy-to-use package of yellow cake mix, so you only need to incorporate a few ingredients to transform the mixture into tasty, fluffy snickerdoodles.

Pro tip: Don’t forget to forget the dough balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to give the snickerdoodles that sweet finish.

10. Meringue Cookies

These meringue cookies taste fantastic even though they don’t have the cream of tartar included.

Instead, the recipe uses lemon juice!

Using a piping bag, you can make them look like puffy white stars.

If you don’t have the bag, simply spoon them onto the baking sheet, then bake.

11. Lemon Cookies

Looking for sweet snacks to make that aren’t complicated?

Our version of the famous lemon cookie should fit the bill! 

Featuring five ingredients, these cookies are insanely delicious and bursting with lemon flavor—perfect delight for anyone who likes the citrus.

12. Cinnamon Cupcakes

What can you make with a box of cake mix? These cinnamon cupcakes.

The cupcakes start with a white or yellow cake mix, then combine brown sugar and cinnamon. 

Then the mixture is baked then finished with buttercream frosting. Truly heavenly!

13. Baked Cinnamon Apple Slices

Pulling off these cinnamon apple slices makes your entire house smell wonderfully divine, thanks to the addition of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Apart from the fall spices, the recipe also calls for apples (obviously), butter, maple, and vanilla. Enjoy the slices over ice cream or yogurt!

14. Fantasy Fudge

This fantasy fudge is a few of those sweet snack ideas that are undeniably heavenly—this is chocolate and marshmallow lovers’ dream!

It requires a candy thermometer and uses mini marshmallows instead of marshmallow creme ingredients from the classic recipe.

Pro tip: Double wrap the fudge to lock its goodness and sweetness when you’re storing fantasy fudge.

15. Almond Joy Cookies

Imagine—munching these soft and ultra-chewy cookies loaded with almonds and shredded coconut. 

Oh my! 

These cookies are easy to make plus they don’t even require a mixer!

And would you believe that the treats are made without flour, eggs, and butter?

16. Microwave S’Mores

Graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows unite to create a simple yet so darn delicious treat—S’mores, everyone!

The making process is a bit different from the original. Instead of roasting a marshmallow over a campfire, the candy is instead melted in the microwave.

17. Peanut Butter Fudge

You don’t need a holiday season to enjoy peanut butter fudge, you can indulge in the sweet treat throughout the year, and all you need is this recipe.

Our version of the fudge is bursting with peanut butter flavor with a light floral component from the vanilla extract. 

Also, the recipe doesn’t need a candy thermometer!

18. Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

There are tons of sweet treat ideas out there, but nothing beats these banana chocolate chip muffins when it comes to versatility.

These tasty treats are lightly sweet but feel free to experiment with the recipe as the mood, and your pantry strikes you. 

Sprinkle sugar or oats on top? Why not!

19. Rocky Road Brownies

Sweet snack recipes are incredibly luscious, and our version of rocky road brownies is no exception! 

Fudgy and rich, these chocolate squares are topped with a gooey layer of chocolate chips, coconut, mini marshmallows, and chopped pecans. Yum.

20. Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

Have extra toasted pecans left over from your rotisserie chicken salad? Fuse them with chocolate chips to make these chewy and gooey cookies!

They have a noticeable nutty and buttery taste with crunch from the oatmeal.

Spice things up by sprinkling some cinnamon on top.

21. Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Flavor and texture-wise, these chocolate crinkle cookies deliver!

They’re rich and decadent, just like a tasty brownie in the shape of a cookie. 

Super simple to create, these fabulous cookies have an excellent combination of cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and confectioner’s sugar.

22. Chocolate Truffles

Want a dessert or sweet snack that’s quick and easy to make but tastes heavenly?

Chocolate truffles to the rescue!

These creamy little sweet morsels of pure indulgence are sure to melt in your mouth; they will end up a party or house favorite, too. 

23. Chocolate Macaroons

If you’re undecided about choosing some easy sweet snacks to bake, then you’re in for a treat! 

Gluten-free and super yummy with an addicting texture, these chocolate macaroons will satiate your chocolate cravings in no time. 

Use all sweetened coconut flakes to make them sweeter.

24. Chocolate Mug Cake

If you’re the only one in your house on a keto diet, you can make a guilt-free portion of chocolatey, fudgy mug cake just for yourself!

This decadent treat is best eaten freshly baked, but you can store and reheat it later. 

Freezing mug cakes? Yes, you can.

25. Salted Caramel Cookie Cups

These chewy and irresistible cookies are genuinely one of the easiest desserts (or snacks) you’ll ever make. 

They’re filled with caramel and made using a mini muffin tin. 

For variations, add some mini choc chips to the cookie dough or swap the caramel for Nutella.

The bottom line

There’s nothing like the joy when munching homemade sweet treats for snacks, as they’re bound to boost your mood when you’re having a tough day.
