I used this to frost coconut cupcakes. I was delicious. It had been a long time since I have had anything with this type of icing. I am not sure what the correct culinary term is, but this Is an excellent change from a traditional butter cream. It was so easy to make and so easy to spread. I used half and half instead of evaporated milk and that worked just fine. This is for the real coconut lover.

Although the directions are different, the ingredient list is the same as the recipe in my Betty Crocker cookbook. I made it for the first time yesterday and it was AMAZING. I'm fighting the urge to make more!

My very favorite cake is German Chocolate with COOKED Coconut Pecan Frosting. Great recipe!!! I cooked it precisely for 12 minutes and when I added the coconut and pecans it was already thick enough to spread on my cake. I can't stand the canned stuff...it just doen't have the flavors needed. Great and easy recipe. Thanks 'na #2'

Excellent, perfect balance of coconut and pecans. I used half & half instead of evaporated milk and that worked just fine. I took pictures but my printer is broken so I can't upload them just yet - will as soon as I can.

I'm sooo glad you posted this recipe! I needed it, just yesterday, and didn't have a German Chocolate bar on hand. Now, thanks to you, I have it printed out! Your easy directions, of course, produced an old favorite ... Great Coconut Pecan frosting ... YUM! Thanks for taking the trouble to post this ... I really appreciate it! Laudee
