Coconut Pecan Frosting

A family favorite, Coconut Pecan Frosting is best known as the frosting used on German Chocolate Cake.  But did you know it’s also great on brownies, cookies, pancakes, waffles, as a pudding topping, on ice cream and more?  But not that “from a can” or “boxed” store bought stuff. NO!  Nothing beats homemade from scratch.  I can (and have been known to) eat it straight from the pan.  Yeah, it’s that good! 

This is my own family recipe for this buttery, sweet oh so delicious frosting.  I’ve had a few requests for it so I thought I would pop it out to you really quickly.  It may look like a complex bite of deliciousness but you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make.   German Chocolate Cake recipe not included. Enjoy!
