Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter cut into 8 pieces
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • cups sugar
  • 1 12-ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract

GERMAN CHOCOLATE ICING:

  • cups heavy whipping cream
  • cups sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups sweetened angel hair coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Line a 9x13 inch pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper and lightly spray with nonstick spray. Place 1 cup butter and chocolate chips in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan combine sugar and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil over medium high heat stirring constantly for 10 minutes. Pour the sugar mixture over the chocolate chips and butter.
  3. Using an electric mixer beat the mixture for 3 minutes. Mix in the vanilla.
  4. Spread the chocolate into your 9x13 inch pan. Allow to completely cool before frosting.
  5. To make the icing: In a medium saucepan stir together the heavy cream, sugar, egg yolks, and butter. Cook over medium heat until the mixture starts to thicken and coats the back of a spoon. Add coconut and pecans and mix well. Let the mixture completely cool before frosting the fudge. Once you put the frosting on, I liked to refrigerate for another hour so they are easy to cut.
