We moved to British Columbia about a year ago and wanted to bake a popular Canadian desserts for Canada Day . Being a BC resident, we had to try our hands at making this staple BC Dessert - Nanaimo Bars!
Originating from the city of Nanaimo in British Columbia, Canada, this is a three layered no-bake dessert bar . Traditionally the bottom layer is made of wafer with nuts and mixed in with shredded coconut, middle layer has custard icing and it is topped off with layer of chocolate ganache. We have made some changes to the typical recipe here, using a cookie crumb base mixed with shredded coconut. Middle layer is made with buttercream frosting with corn-flour and it has a top layer of melted chocolate.
