Coconut-Pecan Filling and Frosting recipe

This is, of course, the best reason to eat German chocolate cake. A sweet, caramely mix of coconut and pecans that can make you forget there's a whole dessert underneath it.

I have made this frosting along with the cake every year for my husband for his birthday. This is the 39th year. I have never have any issue with either! I actually double the frosting for the cake. He loves both, they are his favorite and he can tell if I cheat during the year and try a boxed cake!
Followed the directions and ended up with very runny frosting. I tried adding more coconut and then adding cornstarch. Nothing helped. Tasted good but would not thicken.
This was a great recipe, I also did not time until it started boiling but it was wonderful and fun!
This my favorite icing. One thing I do is I don't time the 12 minutes till the mixture is boiling. that method has been full proof but means all together is a little longer than12 minutes. Delicious!
This is the only recipe I make for the German Chocolate Cake, that is my husbands favorite. If some are having trouble getting it think enough, it is not cooking long enough in the initial stage, really needs 12 to 20 min depending on how high you cook it, but it does thicken without powdered sugar.
This frosting is so delicious I couldn't stop eating it from the spoon after it was made.
This frosting was very running. I kept the cake in the fridge and pulled it out 30 minutes before serving. The cake was a melted mess. Taste great, but not practical.
I made this recipe sugar free using Spelenda it was Delicious! My husband couldn't believe it was sugar free!Will be making this many more days to come!
Amazing... a party in your mouth!!!
Since one of my sisters now needs gluten free foods, we have discovered that this frosting is almost as great over chocolate or vanilla ice cream as over the Baker's German's Chocolate Cake that has been our family tradition from our mother for about 50 years.
