This is my all time favorite dessert recipe. I love these things. I have never taken them anywhere that the plate doesn’t empty before anything else on the table. They take a little time to make, but are so worth it.
Prepare yourself for an out of body experience. I mean I,t they are that good.
With no further introduction, here they are!!!!!!!!!!
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup brown sugar firmly packed
2 TBs cocoa
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
½ cup chopped walnuts
2 cups powdered sugar
4 TBS butter at room temperature
¼ cup heavy cream
2 TBs custard powder *
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4 TBS butter
Prepare the 7×11 pan by lining it with 2 strips of parchment paper. Let the excess overhang the sides, forming a sling to lift the bars out for easy slicing.
Combine the ingredients for the first layer and then press the mixture into your prepared pan. Place the pan in the freezer for 30 minutes
Combine the ingredients for the second layer in a mixing bowl until smooth and fluffy. Spread evenly on the first layer. Place in the refrigerator while preparing the next layer.
For the final layer, bring 1 inch of water to a simmer in the bottom of a double boiler. Place the chocolate chips and butter in a bowl on top of the simmering water. Using the back of a spoon, spread the chocolate on top of the cream mixture.
Refrigerate until cooled and set. When chilled, lift the bars out using the parchment paper and cut into squares.
It is best to cut these small, as they are very rich. Store in the refrigerator.
*I found the custard powder at Dicks and Harmons in the baking isle. The brand is Birds
