Valentine’s Day Nanaimo Bars

Valentine’s Day Nanaimo Bars
Bottom Layer
½ cup vegan butter
¼ cup sugar
5 tbsp. cocoa
1 egg beaten
1 ¼ cups graham wafer crumbs
½ c. finely chopped almonds
1 cup coconut

Melt first 3 ingredients in top of double boiler. Add egg and stir to cook and thicken. Remove from heat. Stir in crumbs, coconut, and nuts. Press firmly into an ungreased 8? x 8? pan.

Second Layer
½ cup vegan butter
2 Tbsp. and 2 Tsp. vegan cream
2 Tbsp. vanilla vegan custard powder
2 cups vegan icing sugar (confectioners’ sugar)

Cream butter, cream, custard powder, and icing sugar together well. Beat until light. Spread over bottom layer.

Third Layer
4 squares vegan semi-sweet chocolate (1 oz. each)
2 Tbsp. vegan butter

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Cool. Once cool, but still liquid, pour over second layer and chill in refrigerator. Slice with a warm knife when ready to serve.

Simply added a little pink gel dye to the middle layer to make it pink.
You can use the microwave for the bottom layer and the third layer.
Make sure you use a warm knife to slice the bars or the chocolate layer may separate.
