The Eighteenth Street Inn

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Specialty Recipe

Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo Bars are local only to Vancouver, British Columbia. After traveling to Vancouver and encountering these tasty delights, we had to make them for the guests of The Eighteenth Street Inn. There are hundreds of local recipe versions for Nanaimo Bars. After talking with many locals, we went to the kitchen and developed this recipe. It is very easy to add a variety of flavorings to this recipe. Our basic recipe is a little lighter than most and the top layer is a chocolate ganache, unlike most recipes that we were given which called for plain melted chocolate. Enjoy making this treat and experiment by adding peanut butter, brandy, grated orange zest, or anything else you may enjoy. ... Robbie Bell
