Tiramisu Nanaimo Bars Recipe

Tiramisu Nanaimo Bars Recipe

I love Tiramisu. After tasting Nanaimo Bars at a local bakery, I decided to combine them with the flavors of Tiramisu. My friends and I love my creation and it is more convenient to eat than traditional Tirimisu. —Susan Riley, Allen, Texas
