The Nanaimo Bar is possibly Canada's crowning culinary achievement: a decadent no-bake bar composed of a dense chocolate and coconut base topped with a rich, custardy buttercream and then crowned with a firm chocolate topping.

But in this version, the classic puts on a Halloween costume, swapping the top chocolate layer for a layer of sweet and festive melted candy corn. The result is an unrelentingly sweet and unabashedly rich treat, certain to satisfy even the sweetest of teeth. Will they make you fat? Probably, but you can always blame Canada.
