Nanaimo Bars III
I can see how these would be a 4-star treat if they held sentimental value for somebody who grew up eating them. As somebody who had never heard of a nanaimo bar, I just saw the great reviews and thought they looked good. They were kind of a let-down, I must say. With all the different flavors nothing really stood out...I could barely taste the chocolate in the crust even though I am picky and buy a very expensive and high-quality cocoa powder. The crust is somewhat dry and slightly resembles american "no bake" cookies. the topping is akin to american buttercream topped with ganache. Can't go wrong with ganache, but I wish I had just made brownies instead! The best part about them was they looked pretty- I piped the chocolate on top in zig-zags and cut them with a warm hot knife and they looked much better than they tasted!

Amish Friendship Bread I
This bread tastes like an average muffin. My bread was done in about 20 minutes, not the suggested 50! It was a bit dry, and it was lacking something- maybe it would be good with chopped apples in it? My kids gobbled it up! But then again, they like anything sweet!
