Coconut-Pecan Filling and Frosting

Coconut-Pecan Filling and Frosting recipe
photo by:kraft
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 been making this recipe for at least 10 years. It can be found inside Baker's German's sweet chocolate box. It is now and forever will be the family favorite. One comment of caution: Do not let the frosting mixture (egg yolks) get over 180 degrees as they will seperate.
I don't think this would be able to frost 2 9x13 cakes. It provided a nice, thick icing on one cake for me.
I made this for my daughter-in-law and a co-worker for their birthdays and now it is an annual thing. In fact I am making it for another co-worker tonight for her birthday. It is sinfully rich and wonderful and not hard to do.
I have made this cake many, many times. I have even sold it by the slice and by the cake to raise money for a political campaign that I worked on and yes, the candidate won the election! I made many desserts for that campaign but this was by far the favorite. This is an easy recipe to follow and gets rave reviews every time I serve it. The Coconut-Pecan Filing is delicious. I have used it to ice soft chocolate cookies as well. Thanks for this site!
