    FLKeysJen's Note:

    Posted for the Canada stop on the Summer 2008 Zaar World Tour. Everyone in British Columbia knows that these bars have zero calories during Bathtub Week! In Nanaimo, close to 200 tubbers (in every type of craft imaginable) entered the fun "bathrub race" competition in 1967 and amazingly, 47 completed the 36 mile course to Vancouver's Fisherman's Cove across the straits of Georgia. An annual event for more than 40 years, the "Great RACE" still starts and finishes in Nanaimo harbor but now covers a much more grueling course and includes a week-long celebration. Cook time includes chill time.

      Very agreeable variation of the original. I did not bake, just chilled.

      Superb dessert. I had to use white chocolate, but other than that, stayed faithful to the original recipe as I could. My friends demolished it - I was lucky to get a piece myself.
