Here’s how you do it! Give your nuts a rough chop and put them the in the frying pan over medium heat. Shake the pan until you smell the nuts or see them color and then remove them from the heat and reserve in a dish for later.
Combine butter, evaporated milk, vanilla, egg yolks and brown sugar in your pan and cook over low heat until thick and creamy.
Stir in nuts and coconut
Remove from heat

It was the easiest and most delicious frosting I have ever made!
