Do you ever cook something just because you feel like a trip down memory lane? I felt like that last week and decided to make a batch of Nanaimo's. We all need a few no bake recipes in our collection and today I've got an oldie but a goodie for you. If you want something quick and easy and reminiscent of my 80's then your going to love these Nanaimo's:
As newly married wives, the girls from work would sit in the lunch room and trade quick and easy slice recipes which were indicative of our young culinary talents. Many of them contained chopped up lollies or melted chocolate bars; you know the type of recipes I mean, everyone made them.
We cooked them all and this Nanaimo slice has stood the test of time even though its a little different to the original Canadian recipe. I'm pretty sure it was served at every Tupperware party we went to during the 80's/90's :)
I cut my slice into 15 bars but cut them smaller if you wish. They would be perfect for high tea or as a plate to take to craft days and nibble on as you chat and sew.
Nanaimo's are in no way cake like, they are more of a biscuit so if they sound to your liking, you can download the recipe HERE or right click on the image below and save to your computer for later:
