Delicious classic!

Prep
Cook
Serves 10people
Ingredients
1/2
cup melted butter
1/4
cup white sugar
1/3
cup cocoa powder
1
egg, beaten
1
tsp vanilla
2
cups graham cracker crumbs
1
cup coconut
1/4
cup softened butter
2-3
tbsp milk
2
tbsp vanilla custard powder or vanilla pudding powder
1/2
tsp vanilla
2
cups powdered sugar
4
oz semi sweet chocolate chips
1
tbsp butter
Directions
1.
In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter.
2.
Stir in the sugar and cocoa powder, and then gradually whisk in egg.
3.
Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens (1 - 2 minutes).
4.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, graham crumbs and coconut.
5.
Press the mixture evenly into buttered or sprayed 9x9 pan.
6.
Cover and refrigerate until firm (about an hour).
7.
In your electric mixer cream the butter.
8.
Beat in the remaining ingredients. If the mixture is too thick to spread, add a little more milk.
9.
Spread the filling over the bottom layer, cover, and refrigerate until firm (about 30 minutes).
10.
In a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chocolate and butter.
11.
If the chocolate seems too stiff, add a touch more butter.
12.
Spread chocolate over the filling and refrigerate. Be careful here, if the chocolate is too hot or you haven't chilled the filling enough you'll get greasy pools of unappetizing yuck. The best way to do this is to spread a spoon full at a time and be careful not to reach down into the custard layer with your spatula.
