  • 3/4 cup butter

  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 2 cups graham wafer crumbs crushed

Middle Layer

  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cup Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread
  • 2 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp milk

Chocolate Glaze

  • 8 ounces 1 225g box semi sweet chocolate squares

Middle Mixture

  • In a large microwave safe bowl add 4 tbsp butter and Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread. Microwave on medium - low in 30 second increments until completely melted.
  • Mix in icing sugar one cup at a time, alternating with 1 tbsp of milk until all icing sugar is incorporated. Spread evenly over your base and refrigerate until firmed up.

Chocolate Topper

  • In a microwaveable bowl melt butter and semi sweet chocolate on low in 30-40 second increments stirring in between. Continue until chocolate almost melted.
  • Remove from microwave and stir until remaining chocolate is completely smooth. Pour chocolate over squares and give a little shake to evenly distribute.
  • Refrigerate to harden top layer of chocolate before cutting and serving. Carefully slice and serve.
