Here you go


Base: 4 oz butter (115g)
¼ cup sugar
3 tbs cocoa
1 egg - beaten
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups crushed malt biscuits
1 cup coconut

Custard Mixture:
2 oz butter (55g)
2 cups icing sugar
2 tbs custard powder
2 tbs hot water

2 oz cooking chocolate (55g)
1 tbs butter

Base: Melt butter, sugar and cocoa over low heat. Remove from heat, add beaten egg, then vanilla, crumbs and coconut. Line a slice tin with baking paper, pack with mixture, and place in fridge for 30 minutes.

Custard Mixture: Cream butter, icing sugar, custard powder, and hot water. Spread over base mixture, and replace in fridge.

Topping: Melt chocolate and butter over hot water, and spread over custard mixture. After an hour or so, take out and cut into neat small squares.

Will keep in fridge.

I hope it is okay to post this as it wasn't my recipe. I have to admit though, I did triple the chocolate for the top. I'm very weak when it comes to chocolate!!

I double the custard icing and usually make a thick layer of chocolate icing instead of using chocolate. I have been making this slice for 25 years and still love it.

Yum, sounds so delicious, unfortunatly I outdid myself when I was younger and indulged in so much custard slice it made me sick for days. Can't bring myself to eat it in a slice anymore.

Yumm, Nanaimo Bars. Not really much like a Custard Slice. Thought to originate in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada (where else?).
The *best* Canadian recipe can be found at:
