This is my version of the delicious unbaked slice I discovered years ago on a road trip through Canada. It hails from the town of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, but is popular throughout the country. It’s a simple biscuit base with creamy custard-flavoured filling and chocolate ganache topping – and it’s irresistible! Nanaimo bars are rich, so I often cut each slice in half to give 48 squares, perfect with after dinner coffee and a glass of red vermouth like the gorgeous Primitivo Quiles from Spain. See video below for another deliciously simple sweet treat.
