"This is a variation of the classic Nanaimo Bars, but it tastes like a B-52 shooter. These are a great alternative to Nanaimo bars or rum balls."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

unsweetened cocoa powder
coffee flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua®)
graham cracker crumbs
vanilla custard powder
Irish cream liqueur (such as Baileys®)
semisweet chocolate chips
orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier®
These are pretty good bars. I used Kahula for the top layer instead of the orange liqueur. (I know - kind of defeats the purpose of B-52 bars). In each layer, I added a little more liqueur than called for. The top layer was good, the middle layer was incredible, but the bottom layer was just ok. It wasn't quite sweet enough. If I make again, I think I would add more sugar to that layer, or maybe try icing sugar instead.
I had to increase the Irish cream to 1/2 cup in order to moisten all of the icing sugar, and I found the top layer to be a little thick. That being said these are quite tasty.
I really love these bars...very rich..a small portion is all you need....needed more liqueur for icing sugar...but on the whole...I would make this agin
I did not care for this recipe.
Super delicious..Thats all i can say about this one.
