German Chocolate Frosting
Betty Crocker has now made sure that all their frostings are Gluten Free which is great news for some people! In our home though we don't actually use pre-made frostings because there are too many added chemicals and fake ingredients that are just not healthy! Pre-made frostings just don't taste how they use to either! I remember as a kid BEGGING my mom for Betty's rainbow chip frosting on my birthday cake. Funny thing is, I tried it a couple of years ago and was shocked how much it tastes like plastic with rainbow chips! Needless to say, we always make our frosting from scratch now.
I believe that once you taste a frosting from scratch, you'll have a hard time going back to a pre-made one again. So let this be a WARNING to you...try this frosting and you may never buy a pre-made bottle of German Chocolate Frosting again! ;) Now, this frosting isn't the healthiest thing I've ever made on this blog but if you need frosting, this is much better than it's pre-made version. I'm working on making it dairy free as well so stayed tuned for updates on that.
Gluten Free German Chocolate Frosting
(Gluten Free, Contains Dairy & Nuts)
Created by jalene, but inspired by a couple of different recipes by Better Homes and Gardens & Elizabeth Barbone
Makes enough to frost a double layer cake
Tip from jalene:
Don't care for nuts? Simply add 1 cup extra of coconut flakes instead of the pecans.
