This 3-Layer Dessert Will Make You Want To Slap Your Momma!
If you’re looking for a dessert that’s going to sweep you and all your guests off your feet, I guarantee this is it. I’ve never had anything nearly as delicious as these bars with such a funny name; nanaimo. I don’t know what that means but I think it might be “the heavenly dessert bar that will pamper your taste buds and make you sing hallelujah”!
Even though you need three different layers for this dessert, it’s not that difficult to make. The instructions are very straight forward and the end result is definitely worth the effort.
When you’re making the bottom layer, be careful so that you don’t add the egg when the cocoa mixture is too hot. If it seems too hot, let it cool for a while first or the egg will curdle. Another trick for it would be to slowly beat some of the cocoa mixture into the egg first, a little at a time. Trust me – that’s the only tricky part about this recipe!

In an emergency you could use pudding mix instead of the custard powder, however, that will make these dessert bars sweeter.
The recipe calls for an 8×8″ pan but you could make these in a 13×9″ pan, too – they will just be a little thinner (but you could always cut larger pieces like I did, haha!) These make the perfect dessert after dinner, or a wonderful little sweet treat to go with your cup of coffee in the morning. Store them in the refrigerator (if they last that long!)
