Nanaimo Bars

1/2 c softened butter
1/4 c white sugar
5 T cocoa
1 t vanilla
1 egg

2 c graham cracker crumbs (fine)
1 c coconut
1/2 c chopped walnuts

2 T vanilla custard powder
3 T half-n-half
1/4 c creamed butter
2 c sifted powdered sugar

4 squares (4 ozs) semi-sweet chocolate
1 T. butter

Place softened butter, white sugar, cocoa, vanilla 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
(fine), cocoanut and chopped walnuts. Blend well. Add to custard
mixture. Pack evenly into a 9x9 pan.

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.

Melt semi-sweet 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.
