How to make it
- In heavy saucepan, combine butter, cocoa, sugar and egg; cook over low heat, stirring, until butter has melted. Remove from heat; stir in graham cracker crumbs, coconut and walnuts. Pat evenly into greased 9-inch square cake pan. Bake in 350F (180C) oven for 10-12 minutes or until just firm. Let cool completely on rack.
- Filling: In small saucepan, heat milk, butter, espresso powder and vanilla over low heat until butter has melted and espresso powder has dissolved. Transfer to mixing bowl; let cool. Beat in sugar until thickened and smooth; spread evenly over cooled base. Refrigerate for about 45 minutes or until firm.
- Topping: Meanwhile, in top of double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt together chocolate and butter; spread over filling. Swirl in the melted semisweet chocolate for a little deocration. With sharp knife, score through topping of bars only. You can also decorate each serving by placing a couple of chocolate covered espresso beans while topping is still soft. Refrigerate until topping is set. Cut into bars.
- Bars can be covered and refrigerated for up to 5 days or frozen in airtight container for up to 1 month.
