Trick or Sweet: Candy Corn Nanaimo Bars for Serious Eats

Halloween Treats!
What do Nanaimo Bars wear for Halloween?

Candy corn topping, of course.

For this week's entry on Serious Eats, I decked out the decadent Canadian treat with a sweet Halloween topping, swapping out the typical chocolate topping for melted candy corn. The result is a treat that is unforgivingly sweet and unabashedly rich: that is to say, completely awesome.

Help! I went to look for the recipe, all in readiness for this holiday season - and it is GONE!! Both of your nanaimo bar recipes on SE seem to broken. You get the top and bottom and all the precious middle steps are missing - as if someone who only likes the creme centres left the cookies behind. What good are they? Please help! Many thanks.

Ditto on MLH860's post - I reaaaallly really want to make these for a Halloween party this Saturday - is there any way to either fix the link or send the recipe to me in an email? It's gemgirl1988ataoldotcom.
