    Sackville's Note:

    This comes out of a family recipe box. I've never made it, but it is one of my husband's childhood favourites.

      Yep, definitely Nanaimo bars. Didn't know it was a Canadian thing, but being from Canada, I am oblivious to what other people name their recipes. As of this posting there are 43 other recipes on this site for Nanaimo bars...they're all very sweet and tasty. Definitely a family favorite for us as well.

      A very easy sweet slice/bar/square to serve with tea or coffee as a treat or as an after dinner dessert. This recipe comes from Canada and from what I can determine are known as Nanaimo bars there. Although not the exact recipe (Sackville used heavy cream in place of the orange juice) these were made by the Chef herself whilst staying with us for a couple of days with her husband on the New Zealand leg of their around the world trip by bicycle. Thanks so much for making these & I will always think of you and our happy days together when I make them myself. A 'keeper' for me :)
