ok so u use the canned frosting do you omit the softened marg.? Sounds really good will make when I know what to do for sure

You will still use the margarine.

The box of the frosting is no longer available, so do you eliminate the condensed milk? MC

Duncan Hines makes a canned frosting Creamy Home-Style Coconut Pecan frosting. It is the same as the old boxed frosting but all ready to spread. I am 76 and I use this to cheat on my German Chocolate cake. I mix this frosting with real whipped cream then frost. (2 layer).

For the home-made coconut pecan frosting, how much water would you add to it to use on a regular cake? Thanks

these are great. here is a substitute for dry frosting mix. 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut,3/4 cup packed brown sugar,1/2 cup flour,1/2 cup chopped pecans,3 tablespoons butter or margarine. Combine all except butter, then cut butter into mixture with pastry blender or knives. sprinkle on top as directed in above recipe. hope this helps you

Our mom used to make this for us 30 or so years ago when frosting always came in a box...anyone out there know where you can find this frosting in a box to make this crescent bar recipe.

I remember this box frosting as something sold by the "Jewel T" company. They used to come to your house and sell you extracts and baking and cooking items. It is probably not a readily avaliable product any longer. I thing the substitute recipe another reader offered is the way to go.
