No Bake Chocolate Bars

Although I've been making these easy no bake bars for years, I've never thought about making them for the Christmas cookie platter until this year.  This bar is similar in flavor to a no bake cookie, but with just a few extra ingredients that make it so yummy!  I frosted and sprinkled red, white and green nonpareils on it, but you can certainly decorate as you wish!  (I forgot to list the oatmeal in the original post - that is what I get for multi-tasking.  I've added 1/2 cup oatmeal I put them in them.  I have the 'whole grain' style oatmeal but quick oats and rolled oats are fine!).  Thanks Becky for the heads up that I forgot them!!!
