I guess that you want a new product collection depends created_atfield.

So, you have to create a block class at your module and at that block class, you have to create a product collection and sort by DESCENDING created_at ORDER.

I have create a block class at here depends on the structure of Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\NewProduct and that block class must be extended

Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\AbstractProduct implement agento\Framework\DataObject\IdentityInterface

At _getProductCollection() ,I build that a product collection and sort by created_at desc.

<?php

namespace {VendorName}\Catalog\Block\Product;

use Magento\Customer\Model\Context as CustomerContext;

/**
 * New products block
 *
 * @SuppressWarnings(PHPMD.LongVariable)
 */
class NewProduct extends \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\AbstractProduct implements
    \Magento\Framework\DataObject\IdentityInterface
{
    /**
     * Default value for products count that will be shown
     */
    const DEFAULT_PRODUCTS_COUNT = 10;

    /**
     * Products count
     *
     * @var int
     */
    protected $_productsCount;

    /**
     * @var \Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context
     */
    protected $httpContext;

    /**
     * Catalog product visibility
     *
     * @var \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Visibility
     */
    protected $_catalogProductVisibility;

    /**
     * Product collection factory
     *
     * @var \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory
     */
    protected $_productCollectionFactory;

    /**
     * @param Context $context
     * @param \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory $productCollectionFactory

     * @param array $data
     */
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Context $context,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory $productCollectionFactory,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Visibility $catalogProductVisibility,
        \Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context $httpContext,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_productCollectionFactory = $productCollectionFactory;
        $this->_catalogProductVisibility = $catalogProductVisibility;
        $this->httpContext = $httpContext;
        parent::__construct(
            $context,
            $data
        );
    }

    /**

    protected function _construct()
    {
        parent::_construct();
        $this->addColumnCountLayoutDepend('empty', 6)
            ->addColumnCountLayoutDepend('1column', 5)
            ->addColumnCountLayoutDepend('2columns-left', 4)
            ->addColumnCountLayoutDepend('2columns-right', 4)
            ->addColumnCountLayoutDepend('3columns', 3);

        $this->addData(
            ['cache_lifetime' => 86400, 'cache_tags' => [\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product::CACHE_TAG]]

Call this Block class from cms_index_index.xml layout file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">

                <arguments>
                    <argument name="type" xsi:type="string">new</argument>
                </arguments>
                <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ProductList\Item\Container" name="new.product.addto" as="addto">
                    <block class="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ProductList\Item\AddTo\Compare"

                </block>

     </referenceContainer>
    </body>
</page>

Try Below way.
Create your block file and add below code

<?php
namespace YourCompanyName\YourModuleName\Block;
class YourCustomBlock extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
{ 
    protected $_productCollectionFactory;

    protected $_productVisibility;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context, 
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory $productCollectionFactory,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Visibility $productVisibility,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_productCollectionFactory = $productCollectionFactory; 
        $this->_productVisibility = $productVisibility; 
        parent::__construct($context, $data);
    }

    public function getProductCollection() {
        $collection = $this->_productCollectionFactory->create();
        $collection->addAttributeToSelect('*');

        // filter current website products
        $collection->addWebsiteFilter();

        $collection->addAttributeToSort('entity_id','desc');

        // filter current store products
        $collection->addStoreFilter();

        // set visibility filter
        $collection->setVisibility($this->productVisibility->getVisibleInSiteIds());

        // fetching only 5 products
        $collection->setPageSize(5); 

        return $collection;
    }
}

and your phtml file call yor block

$productCollection = $block->getProductCollection(); 
foreach ($productCollection as $product) { 
    echo $product->getId() . '<br />';
    echo $product->getName() . '<br />';
}

using object manager

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance(); 

$productCollectionFactory = $objectManager->get('\Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory');
$collection = $productCollectionFactory->create();
$collection->addAttributeToSelect('*');

// filter current website products
$collection->addWebsiteFilter();

$collection->addAttributeToSort('entity_id','desc');

// filter current store products
$collection->addStoreFilter();

// set visibility filter
$collection->setVisibility($objectManager->get('\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Visibility')->getVisibleInSiteIds());

// fetching only 5 products
$collection->setPageSize(5); 
    foreach ($productCollection as $product) { 
    echo $product->getId() . '<br />';
    echo $product->getName() . '<br />';
}
