These are almost identical to the Canadian Nanimo bars (several different versions). This 5 rating is not mine because I have never liked them but for all those other people who have tasted them. They are definitely rich and need to be cut in small pieces. I would not dare to think of how many calories. You have to have a very sweet tooth.
These bars are sure to satisfy those sweet tooths at our July 4th party. A nice cool snack too. Thanks for the easy and explicit directions, especially steps 13-15.
DD and I prepared this dessert and tasted a bit before supper. We could hardly stop eating them and licking our fingers! Yummo! p.s. We did not have vanilla pudding on hand, but used toasted coconut pudding which indeed was perfect for the recipe! Prepared for Zingo ZWT5 Team Jammin Java Jivers.
This is so good! My family has a VERY big sweet tooth and adored them! The only thing that stopped them is that they are VERY RICH. Ours did not contain nuts (personal preference) and were oh! so good! Thanks!! Made for Zingo by a Groovy Gastrognome of ZWT5.
Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 ~ Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I chose this recipe for Zingo as my family has a huge collective sweet tooth! I am not familiar with Nanaimo bars but if they are as good as this then they must be great! I made them exactly as the recipe states & they turned out perfect. DH has gone to school with a couple in his lunch box! Next time I will double the quantity. Thanks Michelle for a lovely recipe :)
These are delicious squares. This square recipe is called Nanaimo bars here in Canada. TIPS: I spread the crumb mixture for the first layer as best I can using a spoon, then place a piece of plastic wrap over the crumbs to press the crumb mixture into the baking pan, leaving the wrap on while freezing it for the next step. Remove the plastic wrap and proceed with the second layer of the recipe. Melt the chocolate chips and butter for the third layer in a stainless steel mixing bowl placed over a pot of simmering water (a good substitute for a double boiler). A good pot luck dessert too. Yum.
Really rich and yummy! Good thing my family is picky and doesn't like coconut or nuts or I'd be making it all the time!
