These are some of our Mom’s best cookies! The cookie bottom is moist and chewy, then we top it off with the best German Chocolate frosting. This frosting is a family favorite and is really no fail! We’re lucky if the frosting makes it to the cookies – it’s so good that we eat it straight from the bowl. 🙂
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (for drizzle on top of cookies)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until well blended. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-9 minutes, being sure to not over bake. Let cool.
Mix evaporated milk, sugar, egg yolks, margarine and vanilla together in a sauce pan. Stir constantly over medium heat until it comes to a slow boil. Cook, stirring constantly until it thickens - about 10 to 11 minutes (it must be cooked that long).
Remove from heat and stir in coconut and pecans.
Cool frosting before spreading on cookies.
You can melt semi-sweet chocolate chips and drizzle over top of frosting (optional).
This frosting recipe will also frost a 9 x 13 cake.
