Nanaimo bars

Who doesn’t love Nanaimo bars??  originally from www.chefinyou.com, but tweaked to taste more like I remember

First layer

1/4c. Df margarine (or coconut oil)

5T cocoa

1/4c sugar

1 1/4c cookie crumbs (in a pinch, almond flour will work)

1c coconut

1 egg

1/2 c chopped nuts – opt

Melt butter, cocoa & sugar together in the top of a double boiler. Add egg to cook & thicken. Stir in crumbs, nuts & coconut. Press into an 8×8” pan.

Second layer beat together until creamy

1/2c. Df margarine

2Tbsp custard powder

2C icing sugar

just a bit of dairy free milk – so it’s a thick creamy texture.

Spread over first layer. Chill

Third layer:

melt 4oz of chocolate with 2Tbsp shortening. Spread over custard layer. Chill.

These freeze wonderfully, but somehow never last…
