German Chocolate Cupcakes

My friends loved these cupcakes…a winner!


German chocolate cake mix (mix ingredients and bake in papercup-lined muffin pans according to directions at back of the box)

Coconut Pecan Frosting:

3 egg yolks
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup shredded coconut or coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional, for garnish on top)

Stir together sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks and butter in a medium saucepan.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly.  Remove from heat; stir in vanilla, coconut and walnuts.  Cool to room temperature and frost cupcakes.
