A Sara Lee MOMent :: Celebrating Josh’s Birthday {Giveaway}

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on May 5, 2011

Disclosure – As a Sara Lee MOMent Maker, this post is part of a series on making family moments. Sara Lee has provided me with compensation and coupons in return for this post. Participation in this program is voluntary; all opinions are my own.

We just recently celebrated another birthday here in the Young family. Josh turned seven. SEVEN! I can’t believe how fast time flies by!

Josh is a big fan of chocolate, so I set out to find a new-to-us dessert that was big on the scrumptious sweet stuff just for him. I didn’t have to search long before I found the perfect recipe for a dessert using Sara Lee® pound cake.

I tweaked it just right and tempt you with the yummy result:

You know you’d like to try it!

CHOCOLATE LAYERED POUND CAKE DESSERT

3 cups cold milk
2 small instant chocolate pudding mix pkgs
8 ounce thawed whipped topping
1 cup chocolate syrup
1 10.75 oz Sara Lee® Pound Cake, cut into 1/2″ cubes
1 cup mini white chocolate chips

Pour milk into a large bowl. Add pudding. Beat with a wire whisk for 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Gently stir in whipped topping.

Arrange half of the cake cubes in a large serving bowl. Top with half of the pudding mix, drizzle with half of the chocolate syrup and add half cup of chocolate chips; layer a second time with remaining ingredients.

Chill for 3-4 hours before serving.

(My recipe was adapted from a recipe I found on cooks.com)

I hope you and your family enjoy this chocolatey dessert as much as we do! Let me know if you try it.

Win it!

Sara Lee would like to offer one of you FIVE full value coupons for a Sara Lee dessert of your choice, so you can create some special MOMents of your own! Leave me a comment, before 9pm (PT) on May 14th, letting me know what you would choose and why. Winner will be chosen at random and notified by email.
