Categories: Chocolate / Desserts

120  g  butter or margarine
50  g  white sugar
1    egg
30  g  cocoa
180  g  Graham wafer crumbs
70  g  coconut
60  g  chopped nuts
60  g  butter
50  ml  milk
30  ml  vanilla custard powder (or pudding powder)
250  g  sifted icing sugar
4  squares  semisweet chocolate
5  ml  butter

1. Mix the 1/2 cup butter, white sugar, egg, and cocoa. Set over boiling water and stir until mixture resembles a custard. 2. Combine crumbs, coconut, and nuts. Combine with the butter/sugar mixture, blending well. Spread and press tightly into a 22x22 cm pan. 3. Cream the 1/4 cup butter, milk, custard powder, and icing sugar. Spread over mixture in pan. Melt the chocolate over hot water; add butter and blend well. Spread over the icing. Let set. Chill and keep refrigerated. Author's Notes: This comes from a page in an obscure magazine called something like Canadian Homemaker, by way of a Canadian friend, Steve Deering. This is a traditional Canadian sweet, much loved and admired. The origin of the recipe seems to be lost in the mists of time, though everyone seems to agree that it comes from the town of Nanaimo, in British Columbia. Difficulty : easy. Precision : measure the ingredients.
