I have been looking for years for the recipe for No-Bake Nanaimo Bars that I originally found on the back of the Eagle Brand Milk Can. I just got a recipe on-line but I do not recall using peanut butter or a raw egg in the one I liked. It looked and tasted exactly like the regular Nanaimo Bars you go through all the work to make but I lost all my favorites when someone broke in my house and destroyed everything and it's things like this you can't replace. Does anyone have the recipe I'm talking about? If so, I'd be forever grateful for a copy. Thank you. Mary
