Help, please: Nanaimo Bars

Joined May 26, 2001
Following a link from someone here, I found a recipe for Nanaimo Bars. Might have been on Food TV Canada website? Anyway, I need the recipe now, but can't find the site again. Help, please!

(if it's any inducement, Montreal and Toronto are my favorite Western Hemisphere cities after New York! :D )

Wow, and it was only yesterday that I saw it there! Oh well, all those other links from Google are a big, big help!

Lesson learned: when I see a recipe that interests me, PRINT IT OUT IMMEDIATELY!

But you're a peach for helping:D :D :D :D :D

I found out the hard way to look at the upper right hand corner of recipes at FoodTV cause some actually have a website expiration date. Go figure. Seems the chefs they get it from are only willing to share for a limited time only. So if you see it write it down.

Grease a 9x13 pan
Combine: 2 2/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c up melted butter
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup coco powder
Pat into dish, bake a 350 for 12 minutes. Cool completely.
Beat together: 1/2 pound butter
2 tbsp. custard powder (Birds is the brand I use)
2/3 - 1 cup icing sugar
Spread on cold base. Refrigerate till really cold and set.
Melt: 1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 2/3 tsps strong coffee
1 tbsp brandy
Spread evenly on custard layer. Chill.
Cut into squares and serve.

Living in South Florida I don't get to serve this very often. I'm hoping for a cold spell so I can make them again.
