2 boxes German chocolate cake mix, dry
10 TBS butter, melted
Coconut Pecan Frosting
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
½ cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
4 oz. chocolate candy coating, melted for drizzle (I used chocolate chips)
1. To make cookies: Combine cake mix, eggs and melted butter together in a large mixing bowl, and beat until well mixed. It should be sticky and thick. Preheat oven to 350
2. Roll into one inch balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 8 minutes put do not over cook. Let cookies cool completely.
3. To make frosting: Add evaporated milk, egg yolks, sugar, butter and vanilla together in a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Stir to evenly and combine and continue stirring until frosting thickens. (about 12 minutes). Once thickened remove from the heat and add coconut and pecans. Beat until thick enough to spread.
4. Spread frosting on top of cooled cookies. Then drizzle with melted chocolate (I used a bag with the end snipped off).
