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!!!!
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.
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
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.
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.
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,
