Growing up, Nanaimo Bars were one of my favorite sweets. Sweet custard sandwiched between chocolate. How can you go wrong?

For coconut lovers, you can add a bit of shredded coconut to the base mixture for something a little different. And if you really love custard, you can double the ingredients for the filling.


How to Make this Recipe


Make the base

In a sauce pan, combine first 5 ingredients and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until smooth and slightly thickened.


Add graham cracker crumbs to the mixture and mix well. The batter should be thick at this point. Pack the mixture into a 9 inch square pan.


Make the filling

Combine 1/4 cup butter, milk, 2 tsp vanilla and custard powder. Beat for 5 minutes. Blend in powdered sugar. Spread custard filling over the base and chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.


Make the topping

In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and 1 Tbsp butter stirring frequently. Spread the chocolate mixture over the custard filling.


Let dish cool completely in the refrigerator before cutting into squares and serving.
