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.
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. - 28 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 07 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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 - 01 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
