German Chocolate Cake Frosting

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Diana Adcock

Much better than that stuff in a can.

Top Review by Gay Gilmore

This is my second recipe for this frosting and both times they never got quite thick enough, so I tend to think there is something wrong with the chef. Taste was still great, but I would like it a little thicker.... will probably try again and watch for the bubble up on the stove and take it off right away.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium sauce pan combine the first 5 ingredients over medium heat and stir until thickened, around 12-15 min.
  2. Add the coconut and pecans, beat until thick enough to spread.
