nanaimo dream

There is one dessert that I hold above all the rest. It is the fabulous Nanaimo Bar.
What is a Nanaimo Bar?! Click here if you wanna know in great detail
Well, it is a chocolate crumb bottom with a dreamy buttery custardy filling with a chocolaty top.

It IS my favorite dessert. I usually only make it around Christmas time just because they are soooo good that I make my self sick eating too many of them.

I was thinking this morning about how I would love to have a nanaimo bar (and yes I know they sell them at Yokes....but they are yucky) and I thought about cupcakes and thought how wonderful it would be to make Nanaimo cupcakes!!

Well (drum roll please) they are!

These dreamy cupcakes are a dark chocolate cupcake with the signature Nanaimo filling as the frosting instead with semisweet chocolate and crushed graham crackers on top.

I made James take them to work with him because after making them, I realized what I had just done and had to get them out of the house before I ate them all!

OH MY GOSH!! Jer and I love these too! His mom makes them and I eat about a 1000.

They are a Canadian thing, so that may be why some of you haven't ever heard of them.
