German Chocolate Icing

German chocolate cake frosting that is cooked on top of the stove and put on warm cake while frosting is warm.

Ingredients
1 cup canned evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks, slightly mixed with a whisk
1⁄2 cup butter (real butter)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1⁄2 cups coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions

Put butter in a sauce pan and let it melt.
Add milk, sugar, vanilla and whisk in egg yolks.
Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture starts to bubble and then cook for about nine (9) minutes stirring constantly.
Pour over coconut and pecans and mix.
I usually put the nuts and coconut in a metal bowl and then poor the hot mixture over them to help with cooling.
If you are in a hurry, put the mixture in the refrigerator stirring occasionally until it is cool and thick enough to ice your cake.
I find that box cakes are just fine for this.
