Coconut Pecan Cream Cheese Frosting
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temp
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, at room temp
2-1/2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened grated coconut, thawed
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
Place the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl.
Blend with an electric mixer on low speed until combined, 30 seconds.
Stop the machine.
Add the confectioners sugar, a bit at a time, blending with the mixer on low speed until the sugar is well incorporated, 1 minute.
Add the vanilla, then increase the mixer speed to medium, and blend the frosting until fluffy, 1 minute more.
Fold in the coconut and pecans.

For this recipe I use a store bought Butter Pecan cake mix, but the best part is the homemade frosting from The Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn!
