Good luck to you, I stand by my original answer, ship the pre measured ingredients and the method in a pretty container and let them make the recipe themselves.
Up to 6 Weeks!?!!?!?!? This is a food item going over 5000 miles in the air. This needs to the sent in no more than one week in order to make sure it is fresh once it gets to Russia. That is not cheap at all.

I tried to price a 9" by 9" by 3" box going from Vancouver to Siberia at UPS and DHL and got quotes of roughly 200 bucks Canadian!?!?!?

I got a 161 buck quote from a US location to Siberia in roughly 8 days for a 9" by 9" by 3" box going to Siberia weighing only three pounds.

As I said, air prices would be crazy. Ground shipment is quoted as 6 weeks for ~$20. I wouldn't send ANY baked item that way.

I am pretty sure that no one living in Serbia would expect fresh baked goods from someone in Vancouver, but I know that I would sure appreciate the gesture. Think I might send a box of maple fudge via Amazon myself, let someone ELSE have the shipping headache!

Hey everyone, thanks for the replies.

It's going to Serbia, not Siberia

How long would Nanaimo bars last at room temperature? About a week? Less?

Supposedly they can be kept for 2 weeks in the fridge. They do freeze well. In my house, they only last about 24 hours. Original Nanaimo bars aren't baked. I love the mint ones.
