Remember when I made this Tagalong Pound Cake and y’all were like, yup, that’s amazing.

Is it cheating that we are starting this recipe with a frozen pre-made pound cake?

Let’s be real with each other for a moment, shall we?

I’m no Martha Stewart. I have 4 busy kids, which makes me a bizzzay mom. Then my preschooler hands me a note that says she needs to bring a treat to the class party. With the clock running down, I’m like, let’s not make a pound cake from scratch. Mmmkay?

Then we happily whip up some coconut filling together and take a precious kodak moment to gingerly put some almonds on top.

Then we melt some chocolate and drizzle it all over the top.

And that my friends, is how we turn a stressful moment into a, “oh look what we made” moment.

Boom. Fist bump.

You got this.

Now, if you’re not a fan of the classic Almond Joy and would prefer the more sinister Mounds version… easy peasy.

Leave out the almonds and cover the coconut with dark chocolate.

This cake is just too fun to pass up.

It’s like a pound cake and a candy bar had babies.

This super easy Almond Joy Pound Cake is filled with a thick layer of coconut goodness and topped with almonds and chocolate.

  • Author: Shawn
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cake 1x
  • Category: dessert
  • Method: no cook
  • Cuisine: American
Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 (10.75oz) frozen pound cake (found near the ice creams)
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup whole, unsalted almonds
  • 8 oz. chocolate candy melts

Instructions

  1. Place frozen pound cake on a rack over a parchment lined baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, salt and powdered sugar. Add in the coconut and stir until combined. Pour mixture onto a sheet of parchment paper and shape into the width and length of the pound cake. Place on top of the pound cake and press gently to adhere.
  3. Place the almonds into the coconut mixture, pressing slightly so they stick.
  4. Melt the chocolate candy melts according to package instructions and pour over the pound cake, covering all the coconut mixture and as much of the sides of the cake as possible. Let harden before slicing. Enjoy.

Notes

If you would prefer a softer chocolate coating, try making a simple chocolate ganache instead of the candy melts. [br]Place 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips in a bowl, set aside. Heat 1 cup of cream in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, then pour on top of the chocolate chips. Let sit for 30 seconds, then whisk until smooth. Let cool slightly, then carefully pour on top of the cake. Refrigerate until set, then slice and enjoy.

    Without a doubt plain cake is my favorite food.
    I could eat it at every meal.

    Best plain cake I ever had was with coconut included
    as one of the internal ingredients.

    This recipe is great for non-cooks like me.

    THANKS!

    I plan on trying this but I will probably make it like I do a eclair or Boston cream cake. Which is to slice the pound cake into thirds, two layers of cream then top with a chocolate ganache. I think that would spread the coconut goodness farther as I would be tempted to eat the coconut first.
