  Me  Dec 22, 2014
Would make this again.
To whoever couldn't cut the from the previous comment, you keep these in the fridge and cut them when cool not room temp. The chocolate has to be soft enough to cut through and the custard layer cool enough to remain semi solid. We have made these all my life and at a favourite. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
These tasted delicious, but the filling never set. It was very loose and it was impossible to cut them into squares without squishing the filling out everywhere. Yes, the recipe was followed to a T and there were no substitutions made.

I couldn't in good faith give only one star, because they did taste delicious. I'd make them again if I knew why the filling would not set up.

My mother and her friends always made these at Christmas. It was my all time favourite. Infact,one Christmas will our family was visiting friends,my mother commented that I would never guess what was for dessert. Of course, I knew that if it was so good that it must be Nanaimo bars -- and I said so! 5 stars

These used to be in the Electric Company Cookie Book in Milwaukee when I was a child...called Vanilla Cream Bars. My all-time favorite! 5 stars

I went to Nanaimo 30 years ago and purchased the different flavored bars they had in the shop. I fell in love with them. Later, I met someone with the recipe and was sworn to secretly. So glad it's out now. 5 stars

I've been making these since I got the original recipe back in the 1960's. They are still my favorite Christmas cookie! 5 stars
