Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Prepare a 9”-square baking pan by coating with cooking spray. Or line pan with aluminum foil and coat foil with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Spread mixture in prepared pan, packing firmly all around. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from heat. Allow to cool to room temperature and then place pan in the freezer until mixture is firm.
