Lost non-bake recipe for "Junk"

I'm new to this group and am hoping to find a recipe for something called "Junk". Back in the 70's is when I made this, but through all of my moves during the last 30 years I seem to have lost the recipe. It was a non-bake cookie that got better with age. It had only 4 or 5 ingredients and turned out great. If anyone has heard of this or has the recipe I would greatly appreciate it. I've talked about it for years and no one believes me. Thanks for all your help.

Is it a cookie or is it a bar. I looked on line and found a recipe for Seven-layer cookies (aka Magic Bars, aka Junk Bars. Could that be it? andreasrecipes.com/...-aka-junk-bars

Ah, but that one you have to bake. What were some of the ingredients that you remember were in the recipe?

Hi Ladies, some of the ingr. were dates, marshmallows, cream.... you formed it into a log and wrapped it in sarah, then refrigerated it. The dates and cream turned into a type of fermented joyousness! Like I said the longer you let it sit before eating the better. Just like fruitcake.

Marshmallow Graham Cracker Date Roll
18 graham crackers, crumbled fine
1 pound dates, pitted and cut into small pieces
16 marshmallows, cut into eighths
1 cup chopped nuts

Mix all ingredients in the order given. Then form into rolls about 2 inches in diameter, wrap in waxed paper, and chill in the refrigerator. Cut in slices to serve.
