Milk Chocolate Mint Nanaimo Bars


Chocolate and mint lovers need to try out these delicious no-bake nanaimo bars.


I tried regular nanaimo bars for the first time last year. Delicious! The filling is made with custard powder, which can be found in the baking aisle of grocery stores, or on Amazon.


I really enjoyed these sweet little treats. They are no-bake which makes them even easier. Enjoy!
