  • Nanaimo Bars: Over the years, this delicious treat has gone by many names… The first recipe originated in the 1952 edition of the Women’s Auxiliary Nanaimo Hospital Cookbook, where it was named “chocolate square.” A similar formula was later published in a 1953 edition of Edith Adams’ Cookbook called “Nanaimo Bar.” The recipe clipping still hangs in the Nanaimo Museum! This mouth-watering treat is a no-bake dessert bar consisting of three main layers: graham wafer crumb and shredded coconut for the bottom, a custard-flavored butter icing in the middle, and a chocolate ganache on top.

  • Peanut Brittle: Brittle is thought to be one of the first candies ever made… and there is a lot of confusion around how it came to be. Some claim it happened accidentally, as a New England woman made back taffy and accidentally added baking soda in 1890! Another theory dates brittle as far back as the Celts, where it was enjoyed as a traditional Celtic dessert, making its way from Europe to America! Still today, peanut brittle continues to stand the test of time as a favored treat. Click here to download the recipe card!
