Preparation

Bottom layer

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line an 8x8-inch (20 cm x 20 cm) square pan with parchment paper.

In a bowl, mix together graham crumbs, shredded coconut and chopped walnuts or almonds. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter, sugar and cocoa powder on low heat.

Mix in the beaten egg and remove from heat.

Pour chocolate mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir well until combined.

Press crumb mixture into the prepared square pan.

Bake in oven until firm for about 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool.

Middle layer

In a large bowl, beat the butter, cream and custard powder (or instant vanilla pudding powder) with a hand mixer.

Gradually add icing sugar and beat until light and fluffy.

Spread evenly over graham crust, smoothing the top with a spatula.

Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Top layer

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate and butter.

Pour on top of the middle layer, smoothing the top with a spatula.

Place back in the fridge to set for at least 45 minutes.

Slice into 25 squares.

Serve cold or at room temperature.
