There was a Daring Bakers Challenge in the last couple of weeks and though not participating in that event, I saw a couple of posts about Nainamo bars and the pictures that accompanied them and they looked delicious; even if their name was a bit funny. I first made some for a ‘Girls Nite In’ I hosted a couple of weeks ago and they were so well received I made them again for a Super Bowl party I went to on Sunday. They are so simple and yes, a bit addictive. I made a double batch for the Super Bowl so I could freeze half and have them on hand for an Oscar party I’m hosting in March…cause @fujimama said they would freeze well; thanks Rachel!
This is a treat from Canada named after Nanaimo, British Columbia; they are ubiquitous enough that they are apparently sold in grocery stores, bakeries and coffee shops. Really easy to prepare too as there is no baking!
I revised the recipe just a bit from the one found here as I’m not sure what vanilla powder is so used vanilla pudding mix and just because…I added a bit of vanilla too!
I have to say it…’Bet you can’t eat just one!’
