To make base, grease a 20cm square pan. Melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in sugar and cocoa powder until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla then remove from heat. Stir in biscuit crumbs, coconut and walnuts. Press into the prepared pan and chill in fridge for 20 minutes.

STEP 2

To make the filling, cream butter then beat in custard powder and milk. Slowly beat in icing sugar. Spread over base layer and chill in fridge until set.
