Recipe Ingredients for Nanaimo Bars

1 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 tbsp milk
2 tbls vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
4 oz chocolate

Recipe Directions for Nanaimo Bars

  1. Nanaimo Bars: Butter (or use a cooking spray) a 9 x 9 inch (23 x 23 cm) pan.

  2. BOTTOM LAYER: In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the sugar and cocoa powder and then gradually whisk in the beaten egg. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens (1 - 2 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract, graham cracker crumbs, coconut, and chopped nuts. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate until firm (about an hour).

  3. FILLING: In your electric mixer cream the butter. Beat in the remaining ingredients. If the mixture is too thick to spread, add a little more milk. Spread the filling over the bottom layer, cover, and refrigerate until firm (about 30 minutes).

  4. TOP LAYER: In a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter. Spread over the filling and refrigerate.

  5. TO SERVE: To prevent the chocolate from cracking, using a sharp knife, bring the squares to room temperature before cutting.
