On separate baking sheets, toast chopped pecans and coconut in 350°F (180°C) oven, stirring once, until golden, about 6 minutes for coconut, about 8 minutes for pecans. Transfer to same large bowl; let cool.

Meanwhile, in saucepan, whisk together granulated sugar, evaporated milk and egg yolk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until consistency is as thick as sweetened condensed milk or between pouring and pudding custard, 8 to 10 minutes.

Stir in butter and vanilla. Stir into pecan mixture until butter is melted. Let cool.
