1/2 cup (1 stick/4 oz/113g) butter
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg, beatened* (see note below)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1 tsp. milk or cream

Melt the 1/2 cup butter and 1 oz. chocolate in a small saucepan.

Blend the granulated sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, egg, graham cracker crumbs, coconut and the chopped nuts into butter-chocolate mixture. Mix well and press into a square ungreased 9 x 9 x 1 3/4-inch baking dish. Refrigerate.

**Important Note from Diana's Desserts**
There is an uncooked (raw) egg in this recipe. Eating raw eggs may be hazardous to your health. Diana's Desserts does not recommend eating foods with raw eggs in them. It is a suggestion to replace the raw egg in this recipe with an egg substitute, such as egg beaters.

To make a recipe safe that specifies using eggs that aren't cooked, heat the eggs in a liquid from the recipe (in this case, the 1/2 cup butter and the 1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted) over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 160°F/71°C. Then combine it with the other ingredients and complete the recipe.

Makes 3-4 dozen squares.

Sandy, use 1/4 cup Egg Beaters for a substitute for the 1 egg (beaten) in this recipe or use "pastuerized" eggs. I am not sure how much cream cheese you would substitute the egg with, maybe 1 or 2 ounces would be a good guess.....Diana

I have a question on this recipe. For the egg replacement, what would the measurement be for the egg beater or cream cheese substitute for the egg?
