No recipe (there are a bunch out there and the formula is pretty much all the same), but meringues are naturally gluten-free and really easy to make.  They are also easy to change up the flavors.

Rice krispy treats should be good to go, just read labels to be sure. You can shape or decorate them in a festive manner, if you want.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I make these often for our gluten/dairy free friends and they’re usually the first to be eaten, even by non-celiac people! Everyone loves them. 

No bake cookies are also usually gluten free, as long as you get gluten free oats which aren’t very expensive.

Coconut macaroons or some kind of chocolate bark?

You can make Rice Krispie treats but regular Rice Krispies are not gluten free. They make a GF version. Egg white meringues with cocoa powder are good. Gluten free brownies are quite easy and use corn starch and cocoa powder. Some vanilla is not gf.

While this would probably not be dairy free (though there are some recipes that are), fudge is usually gluten free.

I’m Coeliac. For GF baking I’ve found it best to follow a standard recipe and swap the flour for a gf all purpose one. Hasn’t failed me yet. I used this method for our wedding cake and I had so many compliments!

I’m Celiac and have a great cookie recipe-

I also make peanut butter bars often- they’re similar to @graduatebride ‘s balls but a bit easier because instead of coating the whole ball in chocolate, you do a layer of PB covered in a layer of chocolate and then cut into bars.

I used to live with a roommate who was a celiac AND a roommate who was gluten intollerant…so we had a typically baked goods free home. They could eat rice krispie squares though!
