In a bowl, mix together the graham crumbs, coconut, walnuts, cocoa powder and sugar. Gradually pour in the butter and egg; stir until it's combined.
Press the crumb mixture in parchment paper–lined 9-inch (2.5 L) square metal cake pan. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm, for about 10 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack
For the filling, use a bowl and beat together the butter, custard powder and vanilla. Beat in the icing sugar alternately with the milk until it is smooth, add up to 1 tsp (5 mL) more milk if the spread is too thick. Spread over cooled base; refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
For the topping, put a heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt together the chocolate with the butter. Spread it over the filling; refrigerate until almost set, about 30 minutes.
With the tip of a knife, score it into the bars; refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 1 hour.
Make-ahead: Wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 days or over wrap in heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.
