Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo Bars

Mix following ingredients in top of double boiler, before turning on heat:
5 T. cocoa pwd.
½ c. sugar (mix cocoa and sugar together)
½ c. soft butter (be sure to use butter not margarine)
1 beaten egg

Cook and stir above ingredients until mixture resembles custard (pudding).
After mixture is cooked, add 1 tsp. vanilla

Blend following ingredients together, and then add to above mixture:
2 c. graham wafer crumbs (22 singles)
1 c. flaked coconut
½ c. chopped walnuts (I didn’t add these)

After mixing the 2 mixtures together, pack into a 9”x9” square pan.

Icing for Nanaimo Bars:
Cream ½ c. butter
Add: 2 T. birds custard powder
3 T. milk
2 c. sifted icing sugar
Spread icing over chocolate base. Let stand 15 min. (in refrigerator)
Melt 4 squares of semi-sweet chocolate, with 1 T. butter, over hot (not boiling) water.
Butter helps the chocolate spread more evenly.
Spread over icing. Refrigerate. Cut with hot knife.

ENJOY!!! - Laura Lee
