Nut Free No-Bake Cookies

Lately I've kind of been making and eating whatever sounds good and making things that are more quick and easy. I happened to be craving these.  

These yummy little cookies are simple and quick to make- a good recipe for little helpers in the kitchen.  A lot of times no-bake cookies have peanut butter in them, but this recipe has no nuts (and kind of tastes like a mounds candy bar, but don't tell the hubs or he probably won't like them anymore...shh) 

This recipe is naturally gluten/wheat free too, if that is an issue for you.
