Nanaimo bars

The three-layer dessert featuring a wafer crumb base, a butter icing filling, and a chocolate finish was supposedly invented in Nanaimo, British Columbia. The sweet treat has evolved with recipes that call for different types of fillings, including mocha, mint, and even peanut butter. Nanaimo, a seaside city on Vancouver Island, invites visitors to take the Nanaimo Bar Trail, with more than 30 stops featuring different varieties of the dessert.
