Nanaimo Bars

1/2 c Butter
1/4 c Sugar, granulated
5 T Cocoa
1 Egg
1 t Vanilla
1 2/3 c Graham wafer crumbs, fine
1 c Coconut, desiccated
1/2 c Walnuts, chopped

Creamy Center:
1/4 c Butter
2 c Icing sugar, sifted
1 Egg

Chocolate Topping:
4 oz Chocolate, semi-sweet
1 T Butter

Grease a 9-inch square cake pan.

In a sauce pan combine butter, sugar, cocoa, egg and vanilla. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until smooth and slightly thickened. Stir in remaining crust ingredients and press into prepared pan.

Make creamy center: cream butter and gradually beat in icing sugar and egg. Spread over crumb mixture and chill for about 15 minutes.

Make chocolate topping: melt chocolate and butter together over hot water or in a microwave, being careful not to burn. Spread on top of the previous parts. Chill until set and cut into squares with a sharp knife.
