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!
