  • Use a small saucepan (2 quart is a good size) for this recipe. In that saucepan, whisk together the sugar alternative, butter, evaporate milk, and egg yolks. Then place the saucepan on low to medium heat. Whisk or stir constantly while this mixture heats up. When it begins to thicken and turn brown, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove the frosting from the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Allow this to cool before using. This should be enough frosting for a two layered German Chocolate Cake. Please refrigerate the frosting and the frosted cake.

Recipe Notes

As mentioned, this recipe calls for this recipe calls for coconut flakes.This recipe also includes chopped pecans. Also, this recipe calls for evaporated milk.
However, if you want to substitute an alternative for the evaporated milk, here are a couple of ideas for you to try.
Coconut Milk is one kind of milk that you can try (1:1 in a recipe) in place of the evaporated milk. Using half and half instead of the evaporated milk is another idea that you can try. I have not tried either however, I suspect that both may be worth a try for you.
