1/2 cup of butter
1/3 cup of sugar
2 cups of graham wafer crumbs
5 tablespoons of cocoa
1/2 cup of coconut (I do less)
1 tsp of vanilla
Melt butter, sugar, cocoa, vanilla and egg in a double broiler pot. Remove from heat and add wafers and coconut. Press well into a greased 9x9 pan. Let cool.
1/4 cup of butter
2 tablespoons of custard powder
2 cups of icing sugar
3 tablespoons of milk
Cream butter and add custard and milk. Blend in the icing sugar, spread over base and let cool. See note at the bottom.
4 squares of semi-sweet chocolate OR 1 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons of margarine or butter (Margarine will keep the chocolate softer while butter will make it hard)
Melt chocolate and butter/margarine and spread over center. Let cool, cut and eat!
*To change the color of the center, add food coloring. Custard will make it very yellow so if you add red food coloring, you can get an orange/peach or even pink center, depending on how much you add. At Christmas, I add blue food coloring to get a green center. The coloring needs to be added during the first mixing of butter and custard so the color is even.
*If you wish to double the recipe, just use a 9x13 pan.
