Nanaimo Bars!

Nanaimo Bar

Nanaimo bars are a classic Canadian dessert originating from Nanaimo, British Columbia.

This no-bake treat is known for its three distinct layers.
The base layer is a crumbly mixture of graham cracker crumbs, cocoa powder, shredded coconut, and chopped nuts, all bound together with melted butter.
The middle layer is a smooth and creamy filling made from custard powder, butter, and powdered sugar, giving it a bright yellow color.
The top layer is a thin coating of chocolate, usually a blend of melted semi-sweet or dark chocolate with a touch of butter for a glossy finish.
Rich and sweet, Nanaimo bars are typically cut into small squares to serve, making them a delightful indulgence for any occasion.

Please keep in mind that we don’t regularly stock these, so if you’re specifically on the hunt for Nanaimo Bars, please be sure to reach out in advance!
