Super Easy Tagalong Pound Cake

Tagalong Girl Scout cookies are one of my favorite cookies because they combine two of my loves – chocolate and peanut butter.

It was a no brainer when the idea for this Super Easy Tagalong Pound Cake came to me. But the truth is, I almost didn’t want to share it here on the blog.

You see, this pound cake is almost too easy, I thought you might scoff at it’s easiness.

But then I got to thinking… quick and easy desserts are like, amazing. So why wouldn’t you love this one?!

Especially since it’s a moist pound cake that’s topped with a deliciously sweet peanut butter filling and then covered in a layer of luscious chocolate.

Here’s the crazy easy part – I used a frozen pre-made pound cake!

You can find them in the freezer section near the desserts. They defrost in seconds in the microwave, but I just left mine on the counter for about 20 minutes before I topped it with a super simple peanut butter mixture (that tastes like the inside of a Reese’s… for reals!).

It took just a few minutes for me to whip up this crazy delicious dessert, so I think that’s a win!

If you’re a chocolate and peanut butter fan, or a Tagalong Girl Scout cookie fan, or just a fan of quick and easy desserts, then this one is definitely for you!

  1. I have a question about this cake – I made it last night for a crowd, and though it was easy and I loved the idea, I couldn’t slice it neatly. When cold, the chocolate cracked into pieces. When at room temperature, I got through the chocolate, but the peanut butter layer squished out. Can you please tell me the best way to get those beautiful slices?
    PS – it tasted fab but it looked a mess. I want to try this one again and do it right!

    1. You could add a little coconut oil to your chocolate to make sure it doesn’t get super hard. Or you could make a chocolate ganache rather than hard chocolate for the topping if you’d like.

    Made this last week – just because! And now bringing it to a Superbowl Party – I decided to split it into two smaller loaves this time so there is a more even amount of cake to peanut butter/chocolate – YUM! YUM! YUM!

    Just LOVE this recipe … thanks so much, Shawn, for sharing!!!
    Though I am a BIG LOVER of PEANUT BUTTER and want to try this easy cake, my mind wandered on to how a cake like this would taste if I put a layer of Caramel (the less sweet kind like frosting on Caramel Cake) and Sea Salt instead of, or even in addition to, the peanut butter layer!!! YUMMY!!!!
