  1. I am going to be making these in my Deep Covered Baker when it gets here and thinking of you with every sinful bite! Those look AWESOME!

  2. I love these things, and have been looking for a recipe for years! No one ever knows what I am talking about til now! Lol. Made this recipe last weekend, and they are amazing, though I used chocolate pudding since I didn't have any vanilla in the house. So poof! Fudge Nanaimo bars! Thanks for a great recipe!

    1. How cool is that, i bet you could create some neat flavors by using strawberrry, blackberry or any other flavor you like
