Nanaimo Bars

1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 egg

2 cups graham wafer crumbs
1 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup butter
2 tbsp custard powder
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp milk
2 cups sifted icing sugar

3 oz semisweet chocolate
1 tbsp butter

Mix together all the base ingredients (butter, sugar, cocoa, egg,
graham wafer crumbs, coconut, and walnuts). Press the mixture into
a 9-inch square pan and refrigerate.

To make the filling, cream together butter, custard, and vanilla.
Gradually blend in milk and icing sugar alternately. After filling
is smooth, spread onto the base, and refrigerate well before putting
the icing on.

To make the icing, melt chocolate and butter together. Spread on
chilled mixture. Refrigerate until chocolate sets. If you let it
sit too long in the fridge, the icing will "crack" when you try to
slice it. Once the chocolate has set, cut into bars and store in

Note that you can use your microwave for all the ingredients that
need to be melted.

A nice touch at Christmas is to substitute peppermint extract for
vanilla in the filling, and tint it green with food colouring.
