10. Prepare Coconut-Pecan Frosting: Stir milk, sugar, butter, and vanilla in a large sauce pan, heat until just warm. Stir in half cup of this mixture into the beaten egg yolks. This is to temper egg yolks and avoid clumping.  Stir back into the sauce pan and cook on medium heat 12 minutes or until thickened and golden brown.  Stir constantly. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature and of spreading consistency.

Chef Notes:

*Use coconut milk in place of cream for the frosting and genache and use coconut ice cream and you have a delicious dairy free version!

*Cacao, aka. food of the gods. Not only is it so yummy in food but it has many health benefits.  Cacao is a powerful antioxidant, high in manganese, zinc, calcium, potassium, and vitamin c. It is also a happiness stimulant and healthy for your skin…..not to mention it is DELICIOUS and super easy to cook with!
