Microwave Coconut Pecan Frosting(German Choc Frst)
Rose Mary Mogan
I started out using a sauce pan to melt the butter with the milk, sugar & egg yolks over low heat, but after the butter melted, I wanted to hasten the process, & poured the mixture in a Microwave safe bowl, cooked for 7 1/2 minutes in the micro before pouring back in saucepan, then adding the coconut and pecans over very low heat, and it worked great.
