Would make this again.
This bar, I admit took very long to prepare, but turned out delicious! For the 1st layer, my assistant was mixing for 10 minutes straight, but the time it took was definitely worth it! If you like sweet desserts, MAKE NANAIMO BARS! (I recommend putting more chocolate for the last layer because mine didn't end up being enough to spread on the whole area of the dessert.)
5 stars

My sister is coming from the Canadian Yukon for Christmas with us in California and the only gift I asked her to bring is a replacement can of Bird's Custard Powder so I can fill all the requests for Nanaimo Bars again this Holiday Season! Canadian born, I've been making rich and delicious Nanaimo Bars for at least 50 years and love them still! On a scale of 1-5, I give them a 6 using the recipe on the Bird's can. 5 stars

These cookies are almost like candy..very sweet and pretty good. I found the Custard powder in a specialty store and decided to try these. I can see why so many make them year after year. 4 stars

I add peppermint flavouring and green food colouring to the 2nd layer. They are very pretty on a tray of sweets for Christmas, and everyone loves the flavour of the chocolate and mint together. 5 stars

To the previous poster - yes, vanilla pudding powder works. I usually use walnuts instead of almonds too in the first layer. This is a fabulous treat! 5 stars

I have been making these since the 1960's when I lived in Canada. I began to skip the 3rd layer because it was often messy: the two - layer version has become a family favorite. 5 stars

My Grandmother always made these at Christmas time,however, she called them New York Squares. I lve in a small town - No Bird's Custard available. Would vanilla pudding work instead??

Response: Try the Napoleon Creams recipe instead.
5 stars

I melted dark chocolate chips this year and easier to cut. 5 stars
