I discovered this recipe on my first trip to Canada. My Husband is Canadian and I got this recipe from my Mother in Law. They are very sweet and rich but very delicious. Whenever I make them I always get asked for the recipe.


  • 1/2 cup butter melted

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 2 cups digestive biscuit crumbs

  • 1 cup flaked coconut

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  • 2 cups icing sugar

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • ¼ cup cream or milk

  • 2 tbsp custard powder

  • 3-30g chocolate squares (sweet or semisweet)

  • ¼ cup butter


  • 1.

    To make First Layer: Combine ingredients and pat into a 23cm square ungreased pan. Chill for ½ hour.

  • 2.

    To make Second Layer: Beat all ingredients until smooth and fluffy. Spread carefully on top of first layer.

  • 3.

    To make Third Layer: Melt chocolate and butter together. Spread over second layer and chill. Cut in small bars – very rich and very delicious!


These are really easy to make
