The Nanaimo Bar Collection.

There’s no doubt about it, Canada is a nation of Nanaimo Bar lovers and this Nanaimo Bar Recipe Collection is for all of us! The recipe for my Chocolate Orange Nanaimo Bars has been incredibly popular ion Rock Recipes since the day I first posted it back in 2011. 

Apparently there are a lot of folks out there like me who would do backflips over anything chocolate orange. The same goes for chocolate mint; that version has been equally popular.

Part of that popularity, for all the versions, is probably because they are no-bake and therefore relatively foolproof. The fact that they are freezer friendly, to enjoy over a long period, also figures highly into that popularity, no doubt.

For the Holidays

With  them being so popular around the Holiday season, I’ve updated the recipes and added brand new photos to some of the recipes. I’ve also added two new flavours, Irish Cream and Kahlua, for a real festive time treat.

With Nine different versions now on site, I figured it was time to put them into their own collection for easy access to the individual recipes. Try one of the new flavours. It might just become your new favourite.

These look AMAZING - all of them ;) I made the classic Nanaimo bars the other day. I didn’t have the custard powder & instead used vanilla powder. The middle layer, though good, was pretty runny. How can I correct this? Do I need the custard powder instead? Thanks so much!

Re: Nanaimo bars : I’m in NE Ohio - it appears that Oreo cookie crumbs are a Canadian thing. The Nabisco chocolate wafer cookies are discontinued . Can’t seem to find choc. Graham crackers - Think I should add cocoa powder to regular graham cracker crumbs? Love your stuff!!
