Tagalong….yes please!

Today I made the Super Easy Tagalong Pound Cake recipe from Iwashyoudry.com. Totally delish and a must do if you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe to take to a party or make for a quick late night dessert.

The recipe calls for a frozen pound cake. But I just happened to have a French vanilla pound cake so I used that.  I also need to visit my local Michael’s store to get the chocolate melt-aways.  I suppose you could use a ganache or magic shell…but the melt-always are really the perfect compliment.

My daughter, aka “Kid 1” as I affectionately call her, helped out too. It was super easy and took less than 15 mins from start to finish! Yes you read that right…15 mins. I’ll wait while you pick your mouth up off the ground. *tick tock*  I know! Seriously the easiest and quickest dessert! And super yummy! Totally like eating a Reese’s peanut butter cup on top of a pound cake.

Here’s the final product!

Well minus of course a slice (or two)! I had to taste it!  😛


Definitely go do this! This one sticks for sure!!!!
