I'm probably best qualified to answer this question!

Nanaimo bars are a slice made with a coco, coconut base, a custard centre and a hard chocolate topping. They have also been known as New York Slice but the original "Nanaimo Bar" (as legend tells it) was invented by a lady in Nanaimo, which is on Vancouver Island. She submitted the recipe to a charity cookbook. I will post the recipe when I have a moment or to....or there might even be one there already!

They are very addicting and a horrible temptation for any diet.

The picture is Food Porn. I don't eat sweets, but I want one of them.

Princess, CW's recipe link is as genuine as you can get. If you can't find Vanilla custard powder (it's Byrd's up here), you can use instant vanilla pudding powder but I like the real deal better.

Is there a way to do it by making custard without the powder? I don't like some of the ingredients in Byrd's.
