Chocolate Strawberry Pound Cake Hearts


The kids and I were experimenting in the kitchen again and came up with an easy Valentine’s Day dessert idea. Believe it or not, the inspiration for this dessert came from my son’s science project. We needed to puree Strawberries for an experiment he is doing to see how fast mold grows. Yum! We had leftover Strawberry puree that looked and smelled too good to throw out so we ad libbed, using what we already had in the house, and came up with a fun Valentine’s Day dessert.


You’ll need:

    1/2 pint of strawberries
    Pre-made pound cake (your choice)
    1/2 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
    Heart cookie cutters
    Sprinkles!


1. Put strawberries in food processor and puree until smooth. No chunks, please.


2. Cover the bottom of a dessert plate with the strawberry puree.


3. Cut a 1/2 inch slice of pound cake and use the cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes. I used a large and small cookie cutter to put both on the plate. You may need to cut the pound cake lengthwise to have enough surface area for your cookie cutter depending on the size of the cutter.


4. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, according to the directions on the package. Once melted, frost the top of the pound cake with the chocolate.


5. Add sprinkles, sprinkles, and more sprinkles, then serve. You can also add whipped cream or sprinkle powdered sugar over the top to make it look even more finished.

It was quite yummy and super easy.

  2. [...] 1. Have a heart. You can have so much fun with a heart-shaped cookie cutter. I surprised my daughter by cutting out heart into her peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich for her school lunch. I cut a small heart shape into one slice of the bread so you could see the red jelly. You can also make French Toast and cut the bread into heart shapes and throw some cut strawberries on top for color. Or, spread a thick layer of whipped cream out on a cookie sheet, freeze it and then cut heart shapes out while frozen. Drop that creamy heart in a mug of hot chocolate for some fun! Here are some other things you can do with a heart-shaped cookie cutter. [...]

  4. Hi Natasha,

    It totally depends on how big your cookie cutter shapes are but I used one Sara Lee Pound Cake package and we were able to make 8 desserts out of it. If your cookie cutters are smaller you could get 12 – 16 servings out of it, easy. Thanks! Sue
