 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Softened butter
  • 2 tb Vanilla custart powder
  • 4 oz Semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/4 c White sugar
  • 3 tb Half-n-half
  • 1 tb Butter
  • 5 tb Cocoa
  • 1/4 c Creamed butter
  • 1 ts Vanilla
  • 2 c Sifted flour
  • 1 Egg


1ST LAYER: Place softened butter, white sugar, cocoa, vanilla and 1 egg in
a bowl. Set bowl in a dish of boiling water. Stir until butter has melted
and mixture resembles custard. Combine graham cracker crumbs, coconut and
chopped walnuts. Blend well. Add to custard mixture. Pack evenly into a 9x9

2ND LAYER: Combine vanilla custard powder with half-n-half. Add creamed
butter. Blend sifted powdered sugar. Spread over first layer. Let stand in
freezer until hardened.

3RD LAYER: Melt chocolate with butter and spread over second layer. When
set, cut into bars.

Restaurants in the NW usually served this with a thicker second layer, so I
usually double the second layer. Looks really great when made in a pan with
removeable sides and topped with white chocolate roses or shavings.
