Nanaimo Bar

A friend suggested to have nanaimo bar for Canada Day celebration (Great Idea!). So I went ahead and found a recipe on the internet. I made some adjustments and the following was what I used.

Bottom layer:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup shredded cococut
1 3/4 cup graham cinnamon crisps (for Curitibanos: available in St. Germain)
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
5 tbsp cocoa powder

Melt butter and sugar using a double boiler. Add egg and cook until thicken. Remove from heat. Stir in crisps, coconut, nuts and cocoa powder. Press firmly into an ungreased 8 X 8 pan.

Second layer:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 tbsp vanilla custard powder
2tbsp and 2 tsp of cream (creme de leite)
1 1/2 cups of icing sugar

Cream butter, cream, custard powder and icing sugar together well. Beat until light. Spread over bottom layer.

Top layer:
160 g semi-sweet chocolate (chocolate amargo)
2 tbsp unsalted butter

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Cool. Pour over the second layer. Chill in refrigerator.
