This recipe is very "cold" basically is saying to throw everything together. I have this in the oven right now and did throw the filling into a bowl and mixed it all together. I didn't have any chocolate chips so I used 1 baking bar and peanut butter chips. Wasn't sure about the brown sugar either but it tastes delish!! I went with a regular graham cracker crust but it is turning out great. Very easy to make. I def recommend for the "bakers" that dont really like to bake...it is that easy!
