  1. Bottom Layer: Melt 1/2 cup butter, sugar and cocoa in top of double boiler. Add egg and stir to cook and thicken. Remove from heat.
  2. Stir in crumbs, coconut and almonds. Press firmly into an ungreased 8x8-inch pan. (The butter may ooze as you are pressing down, but it will get absorbed.).
  3. Middle layer: Cream 1/2 cup butter, cream, custard powder, vanilla and icing sugar together. Beat until light. Spread over bottom layer.
  4. Top layer: Melt together chocolate squares and 2 Tablespoons butter. Let cool until barely warm but still liquid. Spread over middle layer. (The middle layer may melt a bit, but that is okay.).
  5. Chill and store in fridge.
