"I admit ... this is NOT my recipe; but, being someone who doesn't like to bake; I always like the quick and easy baking recipes. This came from iwashyoudrydotcom. Super easy and quick to make. Now, the original recipe called for using a store bought 'regular' size (2 lb) pound cake; but, I have also found mini pound cakes (1/2 lb each), which I actually prefer to use. Whether you use the small or large size cake; you can find various bakery brands - sold fresh or frozen. But, if you are a baker, please feel free to make your own. You could even make a cupcake size too which would be fun."

Step 1

Cake ... Whether you use a 2 lb loaf, mini loafs, or cupcake size; the method is still the same. It's quick, easy, and delicious.

Step 2

Caramel ... Unwrap the caramels, and add to a small pot, along with the cream. Bring to medium low to low heat, until everything is melted and soft. You can do this in the microwave too; and, some prefer to use a double boiler, or a bowl over a pot of boiling water. However, I find, if you just keep an eye on it, a simple pot on the stove works just fine. Once melted, remove to cool.

Step 3

Spread the cooled caramel over the top of the pound cake; then, let it set until completely cooled.

Step 4

Chocolate ... Melt the chocolate; which I do in the microwave. Medium heat for 1 minute, stir and repeat - 1 more minute, stir and repeat until smooth and creamy. You may need to do it one more time if necessary. Let it cool just a bit before spreading it on top of the caramel topped pound cake. And, don't worry if the chocolate drips down the side.

Step 5

Serve and ENJOY! ... You can also garnish with chopped nuts if you want; but, I like it as is. It's quick and easy; yet, really delicious. A scoop of vanilla is also really good.
