I wish to share my family's recipe for anyone who cares to try it (which I HIGHLY recommend) For anyone who has never tasted one, put it on your bucket list. They're that good!!
GIBSON FAMILY NANAIMO BARS
2 squares of semi-sweet chocolate
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 Tbsp white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups graham wafer crumbs
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1)Melt first four ingredients over a double boiler. Add the vanilla and egg slowly, and mix well. Add the graham crumbs and coconut (and walnuts). Press into a 9'' pan to form the bottom layer.
2 Tbsp custard powder
3 Tbsp milk
2 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup butter or marg
2) Beat all four ingredients until smooth. Spread evenly over bottom layer.
4 squares of semi-sweet or milk chocolate
1 Tbsp butter or marg
3) Melt chocolate and butter over double boiler, being careful not to splash water into the chocolate, which will ruin the consistency. Pour over custard and chill in fridge for an hour or two. You know the rest.
