Taken from 'Baking and Desserts' cook book - Helpful Hint : These bars originate in western Canada in a town called Nanaimo. It is important to use dark chocolate which has not been sweetened too much because the filling layer is very sweet and rich. do be careful when melting the dark chocolate for this recipe as the plain chocolate used has a fairly high cocoa content and if the melting process is rushed and the heat is too high, the result will be a powdery looking finish to the chocolate topping.
