Coconut Pecan Icing recipe

This sweet topping might just be Prince's new favorite.  We were wanting something different yesterday and I whipped together this yummy treat.  I had it waiting on the stove when he got home.  He smelled it before he even got in the house.  Welcome home, honey.  
Coconut Pecan Icing Recipe
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup Sweetened Coconut Flakes, toasted
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Your coconut has to be toasted.  So I generally toast mine in the oven while it is preheating to cook the cake.  Just spread it even on a cookie sheet and bake it for 6 minutes stirring ever so often to evenly brown.
2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add your brown sugar and corn syrup and stir it constantly.  It will get thick and bubbly in about 3 or 4 minutes.
3.  Remove from heat and stir in coconut, pecans, and vanilla.  Spread warm over cake.
