Directions

  1. Bottom Layer: In double boiler melt together butter, cocoa, and sugar. Stir in egg and vanilla. Remove from heat and add graham cracker crumbs, nuts, and coconut. Pack in buttered 9 x 12-inch pan.
  2. Middle Layer: In a medium-sized bowl, mix together icing sugar, butter, custard powder and enough cream (or milk) to reach spreading consistancy. Spread over first layer. Set aside.
  3. Top layer: Melt semi-sweet chocolate squares with butter. Spread in thin layer over top of custard layer.
  4. Chill until set. Cut in squares. Store in refrigerator or they get too soft.
