From Denny: Want something fast and easy to serve for a family dessert or unexpected guests that drop by for a visit? This is a simple one from Sara Lee. It involves a prepared pound cake of your choice.
FYI, pound cake, even one made from scratch, freezes well so it's easy to have on hand for a last minute dessert. When I make a pound cake I slice it when cooled and then freeze the slices separately so I'm ready to go for whatever portions are needed.
For the lovely melted gooeyness of the S'mores genre, add some miniature chocolate chips of your choice. We like the dark 60 percent Ghiradelli chips at our house because it has less sugar and a far superior chocolate taste.
Then add some miniature marshmallows. I'm not a marshmallow gourmet so you are on your own for a great brand on this one. :)
This recipe calls for chopped peanuts but you can substitute walnuts, pecans, almonds or macadamias to enjoy just as much. Since we live in Louisiana we prefer the local fresh pecans found at the farmers' markets. I'm of the opinion that for great taste pecans - or walnuts - and chocolate pair better than peanuts and chocolate. And you don't have to be concerned about who might have peanut allergies so everyone can enjoy this easy dessert!
