    Found this in one of the online newspapers I read. Never heard of it but maybe some of you have.

    The Original Nanaimo Bar

    Bottom Layer:

    1/2 cup unsalted butter

    1/4 cup sugar

    5 tablespoons cocoa

    1 egg, beaten

    1-3/4 cups Graham wafer (cracker) crumbs

    1/2 cup finely chopped almonds

    1 cup coconut

    Melt first 3 ingredients in top of a double boiler. Add egg; stir to cook and thicken. Remove from heat. Stir in crumbs, coconut and nuts. Press firmly into an ungreased 8x8-inch pan.

    Second Layer:

    1/2 cup unsalted butter

    2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cream

    2 tablespoons Bird's Custard Dessert Mix

    2 cups icing (powdered) sugar

    Cream butter, custard powder and icing sugar together well. Beat until light. Spread over bottom layer.

    Third Layer:

    4 squares semi-sweet chocolate (1-ounce each)

    2 tablespoons unsalted butter

    Melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Cool. When cool, but still liquid, pour evenly over second layer and chill in refrigerator
