We’re in for a long, hot summer. So to stave off heat stroke, we’re bringing you our favorite summer treats each week as part of Frozen Friday, giving you the scoop on our favorite ice-cold recipes and party ideas to help you stay cool all summer long.
Great things come from Canada: maple syrup, peanut butter, Ryan Gosling, Alex Trebek, hockey (we guess), and among many other things, NANAIMO BARS. Not enough Americans know about this ridiculously delicious and easy-to-make treat from our northern neighbors. With a nutty cracker bottom, cold creamy center and melted chocolate topping, this is a perfect summer treat to introduce to the people of our nation… just in time for the 4th. America is a land of pioneers after all.
6. Reverse Nanaimo Bars: Put it in reverse and trust the homeland with this topsy-turvy version made with a coconut, white chocolate bottom, rich, dark chocolate middle and white chocolate topping, from Canadian Living.
