Just a note...true Nanaimo Bars have a luscious and creamy centre filling that is the thickest part of the bar. The chocolate layer on top actually covers the whole thing, as opposed to being drizzled.
I loved these! Yes it was spread a little thin when making, but it tasted fine. I may try and use less chocolate for drizzling next time as it seemed to cover the whole pan.
These were a hit with my family and friends! I wish I had looked on the comments here first before I started though, because I would have known to have done a few things differently! Like the other reviews, the filling barely covered the graham cracker crust, so I doubled the recipe on the filling, and then for the chocolate drizzle on top, I just used 2oz, of chocolate instead of the 8 it called for. I only had 2 oz in my pantry, and this worked out just perfectly! Any more and it would have been WAYYY too much. Glad others felt the same way. I thought these were really good, and everyone I have given them to, seems to love them! I will make again, and of course note the changes on my recipe.
As others have noted, the filling needs to be increased and drizzle decreased (unless you want to cover the entire pan), but overall this was a hit with my family. I will be making it again with the modifications.
Next time I will use the entire box of pudding mix, because the layer with only 2 tablespoons barely covered the pan of graham cracker mix on the bottom. And the chocolate layer was more a complete coverage with 8 oz, than a drizzle. Otherwise tasty!
These are so delicious! I did not use nuts. And I covered the top with the chocolate - needed to make more. They are better kept chilled (in refrigerator).

I made these for a Canadian friend and thought they were OK, but not amazing. The crust seemed pretty crumbly, and the filling wasn't quite enough. I will make them again with some modifications.
I didn't like that this recipe required more than 1 box of graham crackers for the 4 cups graham cracker crumbs. I liked the filling but didn't seem to have quite enough to the cover the crust well. The glaze was no problem for me BUT you don't need 8 ounces of chocolate-4 oz is plenty. All-in-all, this recipe was disappointing to me. There are too many ingredients (expensive also). It just wasn't a pleasure to make.
