Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped almond
  • 1 oz white chocolate chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
Filling:
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons custard powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Topping:
  • 8 oz white chocolate coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter
  • 1/3 oz dark chocolate shaved

Method

In bowl, stir together graham crumbs, coconut, almonds and chocolate. Drizzle with butter and egg, stirring until combined.

Press into parchment paper–lined 9-inch (2.5 L) square cake pan. Bake in 350?F (180?C) oven until firm, about 10 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack.

Filling: In heavy saucepan, melt butter over low heat; stir in cocoa until smooth. Pour into bowl; beat in icing sugar, milk, custard powder and vanilla until smooth. Spread over cooled base; refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Topping: In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt white chocolate with butter; spread over filling. Refrigerate until chocolate is almost set, about 30 minutes.

With tip of knife, score into bars; sprinkle with chocolate shavings. Refrigerate until chocolate is completely set, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 days or overwrap in foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.) Cut into bars.
