Make it Easy

To make cleanup and serving of the bars easier, line empty pan with foil or parchment paper, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Then use to prepare dessert as directed. When ready to serve, use the foil handles to remove the chilled dessert from the pan before cutting into bars.

Special Extra

For easy cleanup, line baking pan with foil using this easy method.  Turn pan upside down and fit a piece of foil over top of pan, smoothing corners as needed.  Remove foil.  When you turn the pan over, the foil fits perfectly inside the pan.

I see two people who have never even tried this recipe have given it one star - which appears to be unfair. Therefore, I had to rate this recipe on just how good it sounds. With the ingredients listed, I can't imagine it being anything but ymmy. Perhaps the site should not allow a rating if the reader has not made the recipe. This would allow everyone to get a more accurate review from folks who have actually tried the recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from As someone who grew up eating Nanaimo Bars, I need to say that this IS NOT THE REAL RECIPE! As someone who grew up eating Nanaimo Bars, I need to say that this IS NOT THE REAL RECIPE!!!!! In Canada (where the recipe originates) we don't use vanilla pudding or boiling water, we use custard powder and only 2 TBSP not 3.4 oz. also the bottom layer is not done the original way and this one doesn't taste the same. Sorry, but I for one will stick to the original recipe as it was intended to be made!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this recipe but I modified it a bit. I used this recipe but I modified it a bit. I didn't use coconut because my husband doesn't like the taste and just adjusted up the graham cracker and walnuts to make up the difference. Instead of vanilla pudding, I used the pre-made Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese Cheesecake flavor. And they were really quite good and I got many compliments on them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I CANNOT MAKE OUT THE PHOTO OF THIS RECIPE. I CANNOT MAKE OUT THE PHOTO OF THIS RECIPE. THERE IS NO WAY TO ZOOM IN ON IT, BUT IT LOOKS AS THOUGH IT AS SILVER ON ONE END OF THE BAR. ALSO, IT SAYS SPREAD WITH MELTED CHOCOLATE, BUT I SEE THE VANILLA PUDDING LAYER NOT BEING COVERED WITH ANY CHOCOLATE. IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE THE "ZOOM" FEATURE ON THIS WEBSITE. THANK YOU
