Coconut-Pecan frosting (ALY style)
1 c. sugar
1 T water
put in a sauce pot and bring to a caramel stage
2 oz. heavy cream
1 package cream cheese
1 c. shredded coconut
1/2 toasted pecans
1 T. vanilla
so this frosting is playable enough that you could roll it into balls and cover with chocolate to make truffles....or drop littler balls in the middles of a brownie cupcake for a gooey filling. there is just so much you can do!
**this has no eggs and you could substitute something like toffee or oatmeal for the nuts or just leave them out completely....this on top of that pound cake made with some cocoa powder and german baking chocolate would be heaven! there are so many possibilities! Have FUN!
You could also leave the coconut and pecans out all together and use this is a dip for fruit....or a caramel cake frosting....or drizzle over cookies....i could go on and on, but i'm stopping!
Enjoy the process!
