Welcome to my blog. A place to document my journey through life via the things I love most.

Nanaimo Bars

This is my family recipe. The custard is very thick and the chocolate layer on top is much more dense and crackly(if that can be a word).


2 Squares semi sweet chocolate melted

1/2 Butter

2 Tbsp white sugar  

1 Tsp vanilla  

1 Egg

2 Cups chocolate wafer crumbs  

1 Cup unsweetened coconut shredded

1/2 Cup chopped walnuts  

Mix together chocolate, butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg. Once smooth add wafer crumbs, coconut, and walnuts until combined. Press into greased 8X8 pan and refrigerate 30 min. 


2 Tbsp custard powder

3 Tbsp milk  

1/4 Cup butter

2 Cups icing sugar (add more if it seems to thin for your liking)

Mix until combined and creamy, pour over base and set in refrigerator for 30 min. 

Chocolate Glaze

6 Squares semi sweet chocolate  

3 Tbsp butter 

Melt in a double boiler and pour over filling. Chill in refrigerator for 30 min before slicing.
