You guys!!! I can’t keep my excitement in, this Super Easy Twix Pound Cake is beyond good, it’s stellar!
All you need is just 4 simple ingredients and you can whip this guy up in no time!
It couldn’t be easier too. You’ll start with a frozen pound cake that’s been thawed. Of course you can make your own pound cake, which would be just as awesome, but using a frozen one, just makes it that much easier. 🙂
Unwrap some some soft caramels and combine them with a little bit of evaporated milk over a double boiler.
Basically, just bring a small pot filled with about 1 to 2 inches of water to a boil. Then place a bowl on top of the pot, so the bottom of the pot does not touch the water.
This method will evenly melt down your caramels and not burn it, resulting in a smooth and creamy caramel!
You’ll want to let the caramel mixture cool considerably before spreading it over the top of your pound cake. Otherwise it will want to run off the edges.
Pop the pound cake in the fridge for a few minutes just to make sure the caramel is nice and firm.
All that’s left is to cascade that chocolate over the top!
I love using almond bark candy melts for this because it’s more of a candy bar topping, rather than a hard chocolate shell.
Try to spread the chocolate all around the pound cake, covering the sides as much as possible. That way it will look like a giant Twix bar!
When you slice the pound cake it’s a tender cake that’s covered with a layer of caramel and sweet chocolate.
It’s simply dreamy!
