  • 1 pound cake box or store-bough
  • 1 box instant vanilla pudding mix

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


  • Prepare pound cake as directed. If frozen, defrost and thaw.
  • Make pudding in a large bowl using milk and pudding mix, as directed on box.
  • Use serrated knife to slice pound cake in half lengthwise. Then spread a thick layer of vanilla pudding on top (you may have some leftover.) Place top of cake on top of pudding.
  • Make ganache by heating heavy cream in sauce pan until it just begins to bubble. Add chocolate chips and stir until smooth and well-blended, about 3 minutes.
  • Pour ganache over cake and then place cake in fridge to allow it to harden.  Slice and serve.
