The Nanaimo bar is a dessert of Canadian origin popular across North America. It is a bar cookie which requires no baking, and is named after the West-Coast city of Nanaimo, British Columbia. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about after seeing many versions of this recipe all over the place. They were super easy to make...very rich and a chocolate lovers dream!
Chocolateness... so worth the calories!!!
