Baking is a therapeutic holiday pastime. Your home smells like warm sugar and the windows fog up. Cookies are perfect for entertaining, but have a relatively short shelf life, and don't travel well. I've had tins shipped to me from across the country, and by the time they rattled to my door, they were broken up and crumby.

For all you revelers shipping presents or doing baking ahead of time, here are three no-bake desserts that ship well and aren't prone to staleness.

Chocolate Peppermint Bark

For a beautiful contrast, layer white and dark chocolate. Then dust with crushed candy canes. Step-by-step instructions can be found here.

Festive Rice Krispie Balls

Rather than cutting the Rice Krispie Treats into squares, roll them into small balls while warm. A few drops of green food coloring will go a long way when stirred into the marshmallow and butter mixture. 

Fantasy Fudge

This fudge is fun, with marshmallow creme and chopped nuts rolled into it. You can even add your own twist with flaked coconut or butterscotch chips. These freeze so well, you can knock out a batch in November just to save yourself time during the holidays. A creamy, dreamy recipe can be found here
