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