Instructions
  1. BASE: In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, shredded coconut, and walnuts; set aside. Melt a 1/2 cup butter in a sauce pan. Whisk in the granulated sugar and cocoa powder until smooth. Remove from heat. Whisk in the egg and vanilla extract. Pour chocolate mixture into the graham cracker mixture, stir until well combined. Press into a greased 8- inch square pan and chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  2. FILLING: In a large bowl, cream a 1/3 cup butter. Beat in the custard powder and milk. Slowly beat in the confectioners’ sugar. Spread over the base layer and chill in the fridge until it sets, about 1 hour.
  3. TOPPING: Melt the semisweet chocolate and 2 tablespoons butter in a double boiler over simmering water, stir until melted and smooth.
  4. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the filling and refrigerate for about 10 minutes or just until the chocolate has set. Using a sharp knife, cut into squares, wiping the knife clean after each cut. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
