I love this frosting! Perfect for German Chocolate Cake or German Chocolate Cupcakes. Perhaps German Chocolate Brownies even? The sky is the limit.
Coconut Pecan Frosting
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 stick unsalted butter
3 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup shredded coconut
In a medium sized pot over medium heat, stir and combine the evaporated milk, packed light brown sugar, unsalted butter, egg yolks and the pure vanilla extract.
Stir continuously until the mixture comes to a boil. Once at a boil, continue to stir constantly until the mixture thickens, which will take about 20 minutes.
Once thickened, remove from the heat and stir in the chopped pecans and shredded coconut. Allow this mixture to cool for about 30 minutes before using as desired.
