For the Crust:
Line a 9x9-inch pan with aluminum foil. In a medium-size bowl, mix melted butter, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, graham cracker crumbs, and shredded coconut until combined. Press into the prepared pan and refrigerate while making the custard layer.
For the Custard:
Beat together softened butter, custard powder, powdered sugar, milk, extract, and food colouring using a handheld mixer starting on low and increasing to high as the mixture starts to come together. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes or until fluffy. Using an offset spatula, gently spread the custard onto the chilled crust, being careful not to pull up the crust layer. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
For the Topping:
Melt the chocolate chips and butter together in the microwave or on the stovetop. Once the other layers have chilled, gently spread the chocolate mixture on top of the custard layer. Chill for 1-2 hours. Slice into 24 squares to serve. Enjoy!
