Would make this again.
I score into small pieces before refrigerating and if the chocolate cracks slightly I lightly dust with 10X sugar to camouflage the cracks. 5 stars

I have made nanaimo bars since 1956. The recipe I use used to be right on the Bird's Custard can. It wouldn't be Christmas in our house without them. 5 stars

Would make this again.
Score bars befor chocolate is completely set, then when set, use very sharp knife dipped in boiling hot water to prevent cracking. I make this often because they have no lasting qualities at our house. 5 stars

I've searched for twenty years to duplicate the bars made a neighbor. I've finally found it!!
note to heather: score the chocolate with a toothpick after it has set a bit then cut completely once it has set.

Doesn't anyone have a problem with cutting the bars?? Too hard and the top cracks, too soft and the middle squishes out. 4 stars

Taste is great but how do you cut them without making a mess? If they are too soft, the middle squishes out, if they are too hard, the chocolate cracks.
Also had a problem evenly spreading the chocolate layer.
4 stars

This is an amazing recipe! Previously I used a package (I know!) and now I realize what I have been missing ! These are soooo yummy I have made 4 batches for Christmas baking because they are getting gobbled up so fast!!! You can't be dissapointed with this recipe that is for sure. 5 stars

Would make this again.
I have been making this every Christmas for years to great reviews from friends and family. However, in my version I have modified the receipe slightly for the Christmas season. I add 1/2 tsp mint flavoring and about 12-14 drops of green food coloring to the custard layer. Then, after the chocolate layer is on and started to set I lightly score the lines I will cut and add half a marachino or glaced cherry to the center of each bar. Then cool as usual. 5 stars
