Three yummy layers make up this Canadian favorite. Nanaimo bars originated in Nanaimo British Columbia and are a staple of many dessert trays all the way across the country! I have seen many variations, from mint to raspberry cream filling, but the original is by far the best if you ask me!
The first layer is a chocolately crumb crust made up of graham crackers, melted chocolate, chopped walnuts and coconut.
The second layer is almost like a vanilla-custard-icing! It is smooth, creamy and sweet.
As if the first two layers aren’t good enough….they are topped with melted chocolate and chilled til the chocolate is firm.
To get a good clean slice, warm a sharp knife under hot running water and wipe with a paper towel between each slice. Let the blade sit atop the chocolate for just a second to allow it to soften a bit before applying light even pressure to slight through without cracking the chocolate topping.
What do you think! Maybe a Nanaimo Bar will find its way on your next dessert tray!
