These are a favourite in my family. My sister Janet usually makes them for family get-togethers and lucky for me (and you) it is easy to convert to gluten free!
Combine, in a sauce pan: 5 tbs. GF cocoa
½ cup butter
1 tsp. GF vanilla
Cook over medium heat until custard-like.
Add: 2 cups GF cornflake crumbs
1 cup coconut
½ finely chopped walnuts
Pack into an 8” square pan.
Mix together well: ¼ cup butter
2 tbs custard powder
2 tbs milk
2 cups icing sugar
Spread over bottom layer.
Melt 4 squares of semi-sweet chocolate in 1 tbs. butter.
Spread over middle layer.
Allow to cool 10 to 15 minutes and score the top into squares.
Chill thoroughly before cutting.
NOTE: The original recipe calls for graham cracker crumbs rather than GF corn flakes. If you go back through my posts, you will find a recipe for GF graham crackers. They are a bit of a pain to make but if you want the exact flavour, it is worth it.
