Nanaimo Bars with a Holiday Twist {Recipe & Keurig Giveaway}

nanaimo bars

I love Nanaimo Bars and I was super excited to received a special package from Van Houtte with a Nanaimo Bar recipe and all the ingredients to make my own at home. Their recipe includes their Van Houtte Holiday Blend and Holiday Spice Latte, bringing a creative touch to the traditional recipe.

I had lots of fun making them with my little ones and they are so yummy! The full recipe is below.

VanHoutte Holiday Recipe

The Van Houtte’s Holiday Blend offers woody, spicy notes and a rich aroma. With a heavenly cinnamon scent, Holiday Spice Latte evokes buttery notes and ends with a subtle hint of vanilla. Both are available for a limited time in stores and online at vanhoutte.com and would make great stocking stuffers.

Have you tried Nanaimo Bars before? They are so good! Visit vanhoutte.com, where you’ll find other classic recipes revisited and more info on their coffees.

Love this blog and the name always makes me smile when I visit. 🙂 My favourite holiday classic revisited recipe would have to be homemade soup, using the easy tips found in your wonderful blog and shortbread cookies with a big steaming cup of Van Houtte’s Holiday Blend coffee. I just noticed it is only available for a limited time so will have to stock up if I win this coffee maker! Happy holidays everyone!
