3-layer bars

These are from the Frank family and are my hubby's favorites. These are time consuming, only because you have to keep waiting for things to chill. This is a good one to do in steps and make other simple cookies in between steps.

Mix together in a bowl:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup finely chopped coconut ( Bakers flaked coconut works well)
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
Mix together in a double boiler:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter (don't substitute)
1 egg, slightly beaten
Cream butter, sugar and egg.  Cook in double boiler until egg is cooked and slightly thick (5-6 minutes).  Pour over crumb mixture.  Mix well and press into a greased 9"X 13" pan to form first layer.  Chill for an hour or so.
Mix together:
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter softened (don't substitute)
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Spread on crumb layer.  Chill again until powdered sugar layer is firm.
7  Hershey bars (I usually use milk chocolate chips) (original recipe called for 5 cent Hershey bars) and spread over powdered sugar layer.  Chill and cut into squares.  Store in refrigerator.
