German Chocolate Cupcakes

Same amazing chocolate cupcake, different frosting! Everyone went back for seconds!
Coconut-Pecan Frosting:
In a saucepan add:
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup granulated sugar
3 egg yolks
1 stick butter
Stir constantly over medium heat until thickened, about 20 minutes. Once thickened, take off the heat and add:
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 cup pecans, chopped
Let cool and then frost. Makes enough to frost 24 cupcakes.

Is it just me, or does everything taste better in cupcake form? Maybe it's that they're just the right size and have the perfect frosting to cake ratio. Yum.
