St. Patrick’s Day Mint Chocolate Dipped Pound Cake Treats

Mint Chocolate Sara Lee Pound Cake

Due to the unexpected success of my little Fourth of July Trifle post,

4th of July Triffle

 

the nice people at Sara Lee Desserts have asked me to come up with another recipe for National Pound Cake Day which is on March 4,2013.

I decided to make a St. Patrick’s day treat and it’s very easy and quick.

Sara Lee Recipe

I started with slicing a family sized Sara Lee pound cake in half horizontally.
