Our VDay Cake

Ingredients of Frozen Chocolate-Covered Cappuccino Crunch Cake:

  • 1 (10 3/4 oz.) frozen pound cake, thawed (Sara Lee)
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) Milk Chocolate Morsels
  • 4 cups (1 quart) coffee ice cream, softened (We used Chocolate)
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 3/4 cups coarsely crushed malted milk balls (We used Oreos)
  • Frozen whipped topping, thawed (optional)
  • Coarsely crushed malted milk balls, (optional) (We used Oreos)
  • Directions of Frozen Chocolate-Covered Cappuccino Crunch Cake:

  • Slice pound cake into 1/8- to 1/4-inch slices. Place half of the slices on bottom of 9-inch spring form pan; press down firmly. Set remaining slices aside.
  • Bring cream just to a boil in medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Add milk chocolate morsels; let stand 5 minutes. Whisk until well combined and smooth. Pour half of the chocolate mixture over pound cake in pan, spreading evenly to within 1/4-inch of edge of pan.
  • Cover; freeze for 1 1/2 hours or until chocolate is set.
  • Combine softened ice cream and whipped topping in large bowl. Fold in 1 3/4 cup crushed malted milk balls. Spread over chocolate layer in pan. Cover;
  • Freeze until ice cream is firm, about 2 hours.
  • Top ice cream with remaining pound cake slices; press down firmly. Spread remaining chocolate mixture over pound cake. Cover; freeze at least 6 hours
  • To serve, remove sides of pan. Garnish with additional whipped dessert topping and sprinkle with crushed malted milk balls, if desired. To cut cake easily, run a knife under hot water and dry with a paper towel before making slices.
This was our final masterpiece. I was super easy to make! We don't have a circle pan so ours is square and we only did Oreos on top instead of oreos and whipped cream. It was delicious! :)
