There’s a gnome for every holiday around here and this fall I decided to switch it up with some adorable no bake gnome treats!

This dessert is easy to put together and requires absolutely no baking or prep! All you have to do is unwrap and assemble.

You could certainly make these with cookie cups like our original Santa gnome cookies, but I am loving this mini version for something a little different.

Making cute food during the holidays is so much fun. And because we start with prepared items, it makes the process even easier.

These would be great next to some festive chocolate wafer turkeys or on top of our chocolate peanut butter Rice Krispie Treats.

What to Buy

Fall treats are super fun and delicious. What I love about these is how small they are. Perfect for little hands!

Fall Gnome Treat Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make these sweet little guys.

  • Reese’s Miniature Peanut Butter Cups
  • Mellowcreme Pumpkins
  • White frosting
  • Mini M&M candies

Make them one at a time or add them to a plate for a party. These can be made ahead as long as they are refrigerated.

Unwrap the Peanut Butter Cups

To get started, open the peanut butter cups and remove the paper for the number of gnomes you want to make.

TIP: When making these for a crowd, I like to wear kitchen gloves.

Using the white frosting, add about a teaspoon to the top of each peanut butter cup and top with a pumpkin candy.

Place a mini M&M for the nose on each gnome.

I used the regular color M&Ms but skipped the blue and green to lean into fall a bit more.

That’s it! This “gnome bake” recipe couldn’t be easier. Don’t eat too many though! No one wants a tummy ache.

I just love them!
