Ingredients you'll need:
1 cup sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine or butter softened. I used margarine.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 egg yolks beaten--I used medium sized eggs
1 1/2 flaked coconut
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix with pudding in it.
1/3 cup unsalted butter or margarine
While your mixing your batter and topping preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Using a 2 quart sauce pan combine sugar, milk, 1/2 cup margarine, vanilla and egg yolks. Mixing it up until blended. Heat on stove for 10-13 minutes until bubbly and thickened. Then add in coconut stirring until mixed well. Remove and let cool.
Your going to set aside 1 1/4 cups of this topping for later.
Take your mixing bowl and add cake mix and remaining margarine and the rest of the topping to the bowl. Take your hand mixer and blend until moist.
Shape your dough into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Here's the fun part make indentation in middle of cookie with your thumb don't press to hard. Fill thumb print with 1/2 tsp of topping.
Place in center of oven for 10-14 minutes until edges are brown first batch always takes a little longer. When done let cool in pan for 5 minutes then remove to plate. Bon Apetite
