Graham crackers cocoa Burfi

This is another recipe like Chocolate Brownies where I started with one recipe and ended with another. Wanted to include this dish in my earlier post 'Need another attempt' , since this recipe also has a nice story I wanted to post it separately.

Graham crackers coco burfi, I chose this name for the burfi.
I wanted to try 'Nanaimo bars', the three layered chocolate desert from Chef In You. Since I am a chocolate lover, wanted to eat this chocolate, nutty bars. On fine day, I started this. Since this recipe has 3 layer I started with the first layer.

OK, let me give a short break to the story and see some facts about 'Nanaimo Bars'

The Nanaimo bar is a dessert of Canadian origin popular across North America. Made of chocolate no-bake square, it is named after the West-Coast city of Nanaimo, British Columbia.
The bar originated in Ladysmith south of Nanaimo in the early 1950s. Mabel Jenkins, a local housewife from Cowichan Bay, submitted the recipe to the annual Ladysmith and Cowichan Women's Institute Cookbook. The first printing of recipes featuring Nanaimo Bar ingredients is found in the 1952 Women's Auxiliary to the Nanaimo Hospital Cookbook. They are referred to as the Chocolate Square or the Chocolate Slice. Some say the first use of the name Nanaimo Bar was in an Edith Adams cookbook printed in 1953. (Facts from Wikipedia)

Welcome, after a short break :))

I was nearing the finishing stage of first layer, enjoyed the moment as if I finished making the whole recipe. There started a problem, all the ingredients were still not bound together to form as base layer. Again I went to the site and read all the ingredients and steps. Oops , I over looked a main thing which binds all :((

That main thing is egg !!! Now this is a problem :-(

Gave some work to my brain, took the milkmaid can from my pantry shelf. Without any measure I added half a tin to the base mixture. Now, the whole mixture become little gooey. The whole joy vanished in a moment, one good thing I did was didn't started anything for next two layers. Wanted to make some good sweet out of the mixture.
Tadaan, tadaan, tadaan... Background music.

In a sauce pan I added 2 tsp of milkmaid and 6-7 tsp of cocoa powder mixed well. Turn on the flame very low, after 3-4 minutes added the gooey cocoa, graham crackers, almonds, coconut mixture and mixed well for few more minutes, Until it formed more solid gooey mixture. Transferred that in to the greased pan. After few minutes, cut them and made nice coco burfis.

Dear All, wish me luck, I am going to try Nanaimo bars again next week :))
Hit or flop I will share with you all.
