Raspberry and White Chocolate Nanaimo Bars
Recipe type: Bars/Desserts
Total time: 
Serves: 16
Not your regular nanaimo bar!
  • Bottom Layer:
  • ¾ cup butter or margarine
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup coconut
  • Second Layer:
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2½ tbsp custard powder
  • ½ cup frozen raspberries, thawed (I used frozen because it's what I had, but you could always try fresh, if you have them)
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • Top Layer:
  • 4 white chocolate baking squares
  • 3-4 tbsp butter or margarine
  1. Bottom Layer: Combine first 5 ingredients in large saucepan. Heat and stir over medium-low heat until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in graham crumbs and coconut. Pack firmly into ungreased 9x9 or 8x11 pan. Chill.
  2. Second Layer: Beat together all ingredients until smooth.
  3. Top Layer: Melt white chocolate and butter in a small bowl, or in a double boiler pan. Spread over the raspberry layer, and score before completely hardened!
Keep in mind that white chocolate burns VERY quickly, so keep an eye on it, and if you need to add more butter to smooth the chocolate, don't be shy! As you can see, my chocolate is far from smooth, so hopefully you are more talented in that area than me! :)
