    When I saw the title of your recipe, I immediately clicked on it! I love nanaimo bars and your recipe is an "ice box" cake! This all just sounds so good and I think I'll try making it tomorrow! Thank you so much for the new recipe! (Please post a pic of this if you have one?)
    This really deserves a 5 star rating!
