Drizzled Nanaimo Bars
Prep: 40 minutes + chilling
Yield: 2 dozen
Yield: 2 dozen
1 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup sugar
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 eggs, beated
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups graham cracker cumbs
2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 Tablespoons 2% milk
2 Tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups confectioners' sugar
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (can use morsels)
1 Tablespoons butter
1. In large heavy saucepan, combine the butter, sugar and chocolate. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Whisk a small amount of hot mixture into eggs. Return all to the pan, whisking constantly (super important here, the help of someone else would be useful). Cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture reaches 160º (definitely use a candy thermometer on this one). Remove from the heat; stir in the vanilla.
2. In a large bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, flaked coconut and walnuts. Stir in chocolate mixture until blended. Press into greased 15x 10-in. pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.
3. For filling, in a large bowl, beat the butter, milk and pudding mix until blended. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth; spread over crust.
4. For glaze, in a microwave, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Drizzle over the filling. Refrigerate until set. Cut into bars.
These ones are really good!
