Do you have a favorite no bake cookie recipe you would like to share?

Wow! I checked out your recipe link and compared the ingredients to the recipe given me by my grandmother 25 years back. It's identical.
Hypothetically, since chocolate and raspberry go soooo well together, I wonder what it would be like to add little pieces of raspberry fruit leather, or a little raspberry extract to the recipe. Or maybe some dried currants or cherries would do the trick, just something to change things up a bit.
Tip, if you omit the milk from german chocolate icing, then you can take the cooked mixture and drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper, just like with chocolate no bake cookies. They are delicious. You might also add maple syrup or extract top that recipe.
Food for thought?
I know, I can hear my wife already; "Can't you ever leave well enough alone?" Sorry everyone, but I can't. It's just not in me.
