Nanaimo Bars

I recently received a copy of Cox Cookies and Cakes. I've been pondering over buying this book for a little while but must admit never really got round to it! There are some gorgeous cupcake recipes in this book that I can't wait to try, however as I haven't been well again recently and snowed under by course work for the housing course I have just started I just wanted to make something easy but still yummy. I was very intrigued when I saw the pictures of the Nanaimo Bars. They were so eye catching in the book with their bright yellow layer, I couldn't wait to make them.

Apparently these chocolatey, butter creamy bars are a popular sweet in Canada - I'd unfortunately never heard of them. They have a base of biscuit, coconut, coco powder and walnuts and then a yellow custard butter cream filling with a chocolate layer on top - seriously good!
