Peanut Butter Nanaimo Bars

Peanut Butter Nanaimo Bars

CRUST

1/2 C butter
1/4 C sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1 T cocoa (I think I will put in 2 T next time…I’ll update if I do and like it)

Mix together in a metal bowl over boiling water until slightly thickened. Stir occasionally.

2 C graham cracker crumbs
1 C dried coconut
1/2 C peanuts chopped (in food processor)

Mix together and add to butter mixture.  Press into a buttered 9×13.  Chill.

FILLING
1 1/2 C  peanut butter (creamy)
6 T soft butter
6 T Bird’s Custard Powder
6 C powdered sugar
3/4 C milk

Mix well and spread over crust.  Chill.

TOPPING
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips (next time I’ll measure in C)
4 T unsalted butter

Melt in microwave and stir until smooth.  30 seconds at a time.  Spread over PB layer.  Chill until ready to serve.

**This picture is of a huge serving.  Usually they are cut to 1 1/2 inch square for a little finger dessert.  But don’t despair, I’ll eat a big one no problemo. A serious favorite.  An adapted recipe to be like the ones at Blue Lemon.
