Take a no-bake shortcut and build a fancy looking and tasting dessert torte from store-bought frozen pound cake frosted with healthy chocolate hazelnut spread. one has to know how easy it was!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (16-ounce) frozen pound cake
  • 1 (13-ounce) jar chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream

What to Do


  1. Horizontally slice frozen pound cake into 4 layers. Place bottom cake layer on a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Spread with a thin layer of chocolate hazelnut spread, then place another cake layer on top. Repeat with remaining layers and spread.
  2. Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring cream to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour over chocolate chips and stir until mixture is smooth. Let cool 15 to 20 minutes, or until ganache begins to thicken slightly.
  4. Starting at one end, slowly pour ganache over entire cake until well coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


  • Chocolate hazelnut spread can usually be found alongside the peanut butter in most supermarkets.
  • We're thinking that a nice hot drink would wash this down beautifully! Why not try a warm mug of our Citrus Tea or a steamy cup of our Mocha Cafe au Lait.

I think should have turkey cupcakes

This was something I decided to make to donate for a bake sale. It was very easy to make and tasted great. I actually only made it into three layers but it was still very pretty. I also made another but used peanut butter as the fill and I think I liked that one better! Very easy and tasted great!

We made this cutting down on the amount of filling and ganache and it was still very rich. Nice quick elegant dessert without all the work.

Just refrigerate it OR scoop it up the leftover ganache to make truffles or dip fruit in it. Drizzle over biscotti. I will definately make this sooo easy!

will make soon,using whipped cream to top it off served with a pot of coffee

"Mmmmm, it's so good!"

Looks delicious and easy to make, but I'm bothered about the left-over chocolate and cream under the rack, is there a way to reuse it? I'm afraid I would eat it.

You could always make a bar cookie and pour the Ganache over the cake with the bar cookie underneath, it would then drizzle over the bar cookie to.

I'm not big on the Hazelnut spread but what about raspberry or strawberry jam or really, anything else between the layers?

Jif now makes a chocolate spread. Also, I bet jam would be great. If it is too hard to spread, you could warm it is the micro before spreading.

I always put jam in the middle layer of a 2 tier cake, the kids love it.
