In the midst of baby's impending arrival and the drama of trying-to-find-an-apartment-in-Chicago-from-far-away, I'm having a hard time focusing on writing about this recipe. But I wanted to share it with you anyway. Just a few words should suffice.
i have a confession: these are the first and only nanaimo bars i've ever eaten. i don't visit bakeries all that often (which is especially good for my pants, since it's pretty hard for me to resist a cookie, cupcake, scone, or good old fashioned slice of cake) and i haven't been in a coffee shop since late september. the only place i've ever seen nanaimo bars pop up for sale is the bakery case at the little theatre downtown. for the last few months, they've taunted me. and while i'm usually a sweets girl, this whole baby thing has me all kinds of turned around - wanting as much salty popcorn as i can get my hands on and everything doused in coconut . so on the rare occasion last weekend, when i was in the mood for something super sweet, i finally made these bars. and kept asking myself - besides the butter and sugar - why i hadn't made them sooner. almond + coconut + chocolate + sweet vanilla filling make the perfect homemade candy bar.
Insanity. That’s what this is. Pure In.San.It.TEEEEE.
Last month I hopped out to Breckenridge for a weekend to go skiing and catch up with my good friend Courtney.
