turkey day deliciousness: part 2

From the moment I laid my eyes on these beauties, I knew I would need them in my life at some point. Think....no-bake cookie. Think....fudge. Okay, how about....fudge-like no-bake cookies?! Heck yesssss. Can you drip me this intravenously, please? Mmk, thanks.

It's the bottom layer of these Nanaimo Bars that are no-bake cookie-esque. And, God, are they GOOD OR WHAT. WOW.

Supposedly Nanaimo Bars are all over the place in Canada, eh? Their namesake is the city of Nanaimo, British Colombia, and they find their way into donut and coffee shops. Personally, I think these things need to infiltrate their way into Starbuck's and Espresso Royales across southeastern Michigan, and fast!

The second layer is a mixture of butter, vanilla pudding powder mix (yeah...weird, right?), heavy whipping cream, and powdered sugar. Yum yum yum.

And then layered on top? Melted semi-sweet chocolate. I had issues spreading this evenly over the white topping, so that means that I'll just need to use more chocolate the next time I make these. Never a bad thing.

And the most disappointing thing ever? I take this picture, a terribly fuzzy picture. I cut the perfect square of Nanaimo. I point the camera, I shoot....and the battery dies. FAIL. And my charger is sitting, stuffed in my desk drawer up at school. Lovely, just lovely.

Well, that is just an excuse to make these again, now isn't it? :)
