What You'll Need:
cup (1 stick) butter
- 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 13- to 16-ounce frozen pound cake
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
What To Do:
In a medium-sized saucepan, melt butter and chocolate chips over medium heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and add confectioners' sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring thoroughly after each addition.
With a serrated knife, carefully slice frozen cake into 7 horizontal slices.
Reserve 1/2 cup of chocolate sauce for frosting sides of cake. Place bottom slice on a platter and spread 2 tablespoons of remaining sauce over slice. Place second slice over first, and spread with 2 tablespoons chocolate sauce. Repeat with remaining layers and sauce.
Spread sides with reserved sauce and evenly sprinkle top with nuts. Refrigerate 1 hour. Slice and serve.
If you want, go all chocolate and use a frozen chocolate pound cake.
