The Legendary Nanaimo Bar

From Vancouver Island, British Columbia and now to Hidden Valley, these little bars were one of several desserts that we munched, savored and enjoyed this past weekend at our "Just Desserts" event. 

First Layer:
With Vanilla Filling
1/2 CUP Butter, Melted
1/2 CUP Brown Sugar
5 TBSP Cocoa Powder
1 Egg, Beaten
1 3/4 CUPS Graham Wafer Crumbs
1 CUP Flaked Coconut (a little less is fine or substitute more graham wafer crumbs if allergic)
1/2 CUP Chopped Walnuts or almonds.
To make first layer: Combine ingredients and pat into a 9” square ungreased pan. Chill for 1/2 hour.
With Pistachio Filling

Second Layer
2 CUPS 10X (Icing) Sugar
1/4 CUP Butter, Softened
1/4 CUP Cream or Milk
2 TBSP Custard Powder (vanilla, pistachio or mint)
To make second layer: Beat all ingredients until smooth and fluffy. Spread carefully on top of first layer

Third Layer
3 x 1 Oz. Chocolate Squares(sweet or semi-sweet)
1/4 CUP Butter
To make third layer: Melt chocolate and butter together. Spread over second layer and chill. Cut in small bars – very rich and very delicious!
