Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

If you can't find the pound cake just make a chocolate cake and crumble it.

This recipe reminds me of a really good chocolate cream pie with a homemade oreo crust that my cousin used to make when I was a kid, but it is so much simpler to put together. I think if someone in your family has an allergy to tree nuts, you could easily leave the nuts out of it and that would be just find. Don't get your hopes up for any leftovers, since this will surely be one of the first things to disappear if you set it out for a party. A little bit of instant coffee or espresso powder in the mix might be a nice flavor too.

sorry for the typo, meant to say just fine. Spell check didn't catch it.

This is a wonderful recipe... We make it often and build it into Martini Glasses so it is a fine presentation! I add chocolate curls to the top by pulling a vegetable peeler over the edge of a room temp dark chocolate bar over the tops. If you do it into Martini Glasses, you will have extra and that I just make into a pyrex glass bowl fo9r the midnight munching monster's visit's! LOL

Test Kitchen could I use a regular pound cake instead of chocolate?

Regular pound cake will work just fine! :)


Hello Test Kitchen Sounds absolutely great! I do not care for frozen whipped topping so would real whipped cream (not the canned kind) work and hold up in this recipe?

Hi there! - Real whipped cream should work, so long as you whip the cream until stiff peaks form. You will also need to freeze the dessert instead of refrigerating it. Enjoy!

Made this last night and everyone LOVED IT ! While I didn't see the comment until now, I did use the chocolate loaf cake by Entenmanns. I'm thinking next time I might drizzle some coffee syrup on the cake slices to go for a mocha type flavor.

Where do you ever get the chocolate pound cake, I have never ever seen on in our part of the small towns I live in, I can find white pound cake, but not chocolate...

Hi there! - Entenmann's makes a chocolate pound cake, that is usually found with all the other Entenmann's products. You may also find it in the bakery in your local grocery store. However, if you still have a hard time finding chocolate pound cake, you can always use chocolate muffins and slice. Enjoy!

I can't stand seeing someone rate a recipe just to ask a question and then they bring down the rating. Use that box that says you haven't made the recipe yet so you cannot rate it if you just want to ask a question.

I was wondering, where can I get chocolate pound cake? Thank You, Ann

Hey Ann, Sorry, but we aren't sure where you can find chocolate pound cake in your area. However, Entenmann's makes a chocolate loaf you can use or you could also use chocolate muffins!

Would a regular chocolate cake mix work for this recipe instead of a pound cake?

Chocolate cake is a little too moist and soft and wouldn't hold up as well as a denser cake, so we recommend pound cake. You could also use chocolate muffins!

All the lovely chocolate taste without being too heavy to eat after a meal. Made with 4 Sam's Club chocolate muffins instead of pound cake. Heavenly! Will definitely make again.

Of all your thousands of recipes that I have in my recipe file this is my favorite of all time. I get rave reviews whenever I make it. Thank you for all your wonderful recipes. They just keep coming. Only thing that would make them better is if Art were still here to say......Oh, it's so good!!!!!!

I love seeing all of your recipes, I am trying to go on a diet, but how can I with all these lovely sweets to make and try. I haven't made any of your recipes yet, I love the look of the Boston Cream Pie. Living in Australia I dont understand what some of the ingredients are. For instance what is pie filling, instant pudding and frozen whipped topping. In some of the recipes your mixing the pudding with the pie filling.

Everything is "instant" today. When I cook, which I have been doing for more than 60 years, I do not used instant anything. I make the chocolate pound cake, cook the Cook and Serve pudding and let it set for awhile, make real whipped cream , use Oreos and have the same thing only better.

This looked very nice since I used a glass trifle pedestal bowl. It was easy to make, & I prided myself on using mostly sugar-free items [pudding, whipped topping, and sandwich cookies], in fact the only regular items I used were 4 bakery Texas sized French vanilla muffins instead of the pound cake which was way to $$$$. So, basically it was fairly low carb. However, it really makes a lot, my bad since I didn't think about that, but that would be ok....I can share with neighbors. While it tasted pretty good, the main problem is that it's really pretty dry. Perhaps more whipped topping would help if I make it again....putting a layer in the middle as well as the top. Yes, I think 2 containers would do the trick. I will only make this again for a party/dinner guests. I know kids would LOVE it!
