Nanaimo Bars with a Holiday Twist Recipe

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.

Yield: 16 squares

Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo Bars
Prep Time 30 minutes

Instructions

1. Lightly oil an 8-inch (20 cm) square baking pan and line with plastic wrap.
2. With a fork, mix all dry ingredients for the crust.
Add the butter and coffee. Mix well until a homogenous mixture is obtained.
3. Press the mixture in the bottom of the pan to form a uniform layer. Refrigerate.
4. Using an electric mixer, beat all coffee filling ingredients at medium speed.
5. Pour this mixture over the crust and level with a spoon. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
6. In a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt the chocolate and the butter.
7. Pour the chocolate over the coffee filling.
8. Refrigerate for 1 hour before cutting into 16 squares.
Enjoy!

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.

    The nanaimo bars would be awesome with a holiday twist of coffee!

    Nanaimo Bars are a holiday staple in our family. I have never made because it is our Aunt who usually supplies us all 🙂 I will have to tell her about this “twist” I have a confession. I really only love the coconut crust part of the Nanaimo Bar. The rest is too sweet for me but the crust… I have no will power 🙂

  225. Shirley OFlynn — February 10, 2019 @ 11:37 am (#)

    Nanaimo bars are one of my favorites. They are the perfect sweet treat. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I will be sure to try it.
