  • Place 1/4 cup of softened butter into a mixing bowl, and beat in confectioners' sugar, milk, custard powder, and peppermint extract until the filling is smooth and thick. Beat in green food coloring, 1 drop at a time, to reach desired green color. Spread the filling on the crust in a smooth layer; refrigerate until set, at least 30 minutes.

  • Melt together 3/4 cup of mint chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan over very low heat, and stir to mix thoroughly. Allow the mixture to cool for several minutes, then spread on chilled mint filling layer. Return the dish to refrigerator, chill until set, at least 1 hour, and cut into squares to serve.

On the rare occasion I make Nanaimo bars but when I do it is a minty one. The difference in mine is that I substitute creme de menthe liqueur for the milk and omit peppermint extract. Read More

Did not work at all. Way to minty. Centre was too soft melted. Chocolate topping was impossible to spread and then hardened into a rock. Read More

These are good but a little too minty for me and my kids. The hubster loved them though. I will make these again but cut down on the mint flavouring a little. Read More

This was delectable especially the filling and a great way to use up some mint chocolate chips that were on sale. Per another reviewer on this site I substituted vanilla cook-and-serve (NOT INSTANT) pudding mix for the custard powder. Read More
