Recipe: Coconut Pecan Frosting

Coconut Pecan Frosting 
Recipe taken from:

I asked my mom what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday and she told me German chocolate. Never made or heard of German chocolate cake before then. I was planning on making the whole thing from scratch...but got a little lazy and decided to use a box. I did make the icing from scratch, though, and it turned out really good. The coconut shreds and pecans add an interesting texture and it's a fun alternative to plain vanilla or chocolate frosting. 

You will need:
1 c. evaporated milk
1 c. sugar
3 egg yolks
1/2 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla 
1 c. flaked coconut
1 c. chopped pecans

Combine milk, sugar, yolks, butter and vanilla in pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Add coconut and pecans. Beat until cool and thick. 

And that's it!

Some fun ways to use this frosting, you ask?
