There's something about a caramel goodness with coconut and pecans that will make your mouth water. My moms German Chocolate Frosting will get you every time! It's a super easy recipe and will make any amazing cake that much better (I totally use it with a boxed cake mix cake 😬🙊 don't tell Sadie!)
German Chocolate Frosting
1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
1 cup evaporated milk
2 cubes butter (16 Tablespoons)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups coconut
1 cup pecans, chopped
Combine milk, sugar, egg yolks, and butter. Add vanilla. Cook over low to medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened, about 12- 15 minutes, When your mixture starts to simmer start your time. Add coconut and pecans. Beat until thick enough to spread.
Combine sugar and egg yolks in a saucepan. I like to whisk them together so the yolks are incorporated together.
Add the milk, butter, and vanilla.
Stir constantly until thickened. This should take 12-15 minutes on low to medium heat. When your mixture starts to simmer start your time.
Stir in coconut and pecans.
As frosting cools it will thicken up a bit more. Spread on your German chocolate.....
or eat with a spoon!
