Grilled Pound Cake S'mores

My family gets together for family dinner on Sundays. I am often put in charge of either bringing or making the dessert.  My mom found a recipe for grilled pound cake s'mores and thought they sounded like a perfect way to celebrate the end of summer so I took over making them for her.  Of course we adapted the recipe a bit too. Here's our ingredients (plus butter not shown).  It didn't call for the chocolate indulgence spread but we were glad we got it (great thought mom!).


So you slice the pound cake into 12 slices to make 6 s'mores sandwiches.  Lightly brush melted butter on the bottom side of six slices and spread chocolate on the top (we made half with milk and half with dark).  The butter helps to prevent it from sticking to the grill while giving you the beautiful grill lines and the chocolate spread helps work as a wonderful glue to hold in the chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.  


I used 12 mini marshmallows and a handful of chocolate chips per slice.  Then top with another slice of pound cake that has chocolate spread facing inwards and brush melted butter on top.  We grilled the s'mores sandwiches on low heat for about 3-4 minutes per side.  So glad we used the chocolate spread because without this "glue"  chocolate chips and marshmallows would have been falling out when we flipped them for sure!  Be sure not to burn the bottoms but allow them to grill long enough to give grill marks on the cake and melt all the goodness inside.  They were pretty yummy, an interesting take on s'mores, and the perfect way to celebrate summer winding down.

  2. Cool! Looks like the perfect end to both summer and perhaps a grilled cheese sandwich supper, too! My childhood was filled with no-meat-Fridays and grilled tomato and cheese sandwiches. Gotta love those grill lines.
