Limited Edition Give A WAY

Hey everyone, hope you are having a great week. I know I am! I am so excited to be doing a Christmas give-a-way. It was decided through a Face Book Post which Limited Edition colour it would be. And the winner was RED!!!!

Limited Edition.


This online contest runs from Dec. 3, 2017 to Dec. 10th. There will be an extra surprise to go along with the Limited Edition kimono that the winner will be first to see when they get their parcel in the mail. Hopefully she will share photos so you all can see the extra special gift!

Last weeks post I promised you our Families Secret Nanmo Bar Recipe so here it is, I hope you enjoy it and do not be afraid to play with the flavourings, I have used eggnog instead of cream, the options there are endless. Why not replace the almonds with a different light tasting nut. My sweet daughter Amber would say I am sacrilegious for even suggesting that. She is a very traditional girl when it comes to family traditions and celebrations.



Nanamo Bars

Bottom Layer:

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup sugar

5tbsp. cocoa

1 egg beaten

1 3/4 cup graham wafers crumbs

1/2 cup finely chopped almonds

1 cup coconut

Melt first 3 ingredients in top of a double boiler, add egg and stir until thickened. Remove from heat and add remaining bottom layer ingredients. Press into an 8″x8″ pan.

Second Layer:

1/2 cup of unsalted butter

2tbsp. and 2 tsp. cream

2 tbsp. vanilla custard powder

2 cups of sifted icing sugar

Cream butter, cream and custard powder together, Add sifted icing sugar until well blended. Spread over bottom laye.

Third Layer:

8 squares of semisweet or another high quality dark chocolate (8 ounces total)

4 tbsp. unsalted butter

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat, Cool slightly and pour over second layer of bars. Chill in refrigerator. This bar is best served at room temperature, it also freezes very well.


I really hope you enjoy this wonderful recipe, and remember at this hectic time of year to take time to put your feet up, next post will be a great Christmas movie list that you can share,                 Tata for now my friends,
