• ½ cup butter
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 cup coconut
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 cups graham wafer crumbs (26 wafers)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla


Place softened butter, sugar, cocoa, vanilla and egg in a bowl. Set bowl in pan of boiling water. Stir mixture until butter has melted and is the consistency of custard. Mix wafer crumbs, cocoanut and nuts together. Add to the cocoa mixture. Pack into ungreased 9 inch square pan and spread with the following icing.

Cream 4 tablespoons butter, combine 2 tbsp milk with 2 tbsp vanilla custard pudding powder and add to butter. Mix in 2 cups sifted icing sugar. Spread over chocolate base and allow to harden. Cover with 2 squares of melted semi-sweet chocolate mixed with 1 tbsp butter. Spread evenly. Refrigerate if desired.
