Melt chocolate in boiling water. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, add egg yolks, vanilla, and chocolate. Add dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk. Fold in egg whites. Pour into three 9" pans, lined on bottoms with wax paper. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Frost tops with Coconut Pecan Frosting, leaving sides unfrosted.

Coconut Pecan Filling and Frosting: Combine all except coconut and pecans in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, about 12 minutes. When mixture thickens, remove from heat. Stir in coconut and pecans. Cool until spreadable.
