Orange & Black Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo bars are a Canadian classic that blends a chewy, chocolatey, nutty base with creamy layers. We’ve added a twist to the classic by giving the filling an orange tang. The result is an orange and black dessert and snack bar that will quickly become a favorite. A luscious treat anytime, it’s the perfect addition to a Halloween party.
