Let's NO bake

I decided that with all the baking you are doing following my holiDAZE cookie posts... so here's a quick NO bake for ya!! Equally as delicious just a lil less time consuming. 
I've only tried this once, and i'm thinking about adding some butterscotch or chocolate chips to the mix next time around.
