These are as good as they look! And no baking required. Allow time for each layer to chill. I would say in the fridge these take a good 3 hours start to finish. I made mine in about an hour and a half using the freezer to speed each layer along. I am excited to have found these. They taste amazing, different, and look so fancy the way they hold their shape and are layered. I will be adding these to my suggested delights in my wedding binder. Imagine a chocolate graham cracker crust with coconut, then a chilled vanilla custard, almost nougat layer, topped with a thick chocolate ganache. Sigh! And so easy!

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 Tab. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tab. custard powder or instant vanilla pudding mix (I used the pudding)
2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tab. butter
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Put on your apron and ...
In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar and cocoa; stir well. Add egg; cook and stir constantly over medium-low heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Mix in cracker crumbs and coconut. Press into a greased 8 or 9 inch square pan. Chill til set. ( I stuck mine in the freezer for about 10 minutes while I was making the filling.)
In a mixing bowl, beat together filling ingredients until light and fluffy. Spread evenly over base and chill. (I stuck mine in the freezer for about 30 minutes to 1 hour) (Until it is firm to the touch)
In a small saucepan over low heat (I always use a ghetto double boiler system I have. I boil 2 inches of water in a big pot, stick the chocolate in a smaller pot and put it in the water. This almost guarantees my chocolate won't melt.) Melt completely. Pour evenly over filling. Refrigerate (or speed freeze :) ) till cool and completely set.
Cut into cute squares and serve. They truly are beautiful.
