Daring Bakers: Nanaimo Bar Challenge

The January 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Lauren of Celiac Teen. Lauren chose Gluten-Free Graham Wafers and Nanaimo Bars as the challenge for the month. The sources she based her recipe on are 101 Cookbooks and

She was also sweet enough to link us up to a vegan version of these Canadian goodies HERE.

But I wanted to give these bad boys my own little twist, so I turned them into.....

Vegan Nanaimo Truffles!!!!

(dude... they are extreme chocolate goodness!)

If you follow the link about to the recipe, you'll find the video on how to make the traditional layered bar. I followed the same recipe but added a few twists....

I took "layer 1" mixture & combined it w/ a bit more than 1/2 of "layer 2" mixture, which was still quite moist, so I added in a bit more graham cracker crumbs til it tightened up. Then I scooped up this dough w/ my smallest cookie dough scoop and placed the balls on a silpat lined baking sheet. Then I drizzled on the "layer 3" chocolate and placed in the fridge to set up.

wa-lah! i'll def. whip these up again, and trust me, the non-veg peeps in your life will not have a CLUE that it's a vegan treat!
