A Sara Lee MOMent :: Celebrating Josh’s Birthday {Giveaway}

Disclosure – As a Sara Lee MOMent Maker, this post is part of a series on making family moments. Sara Lee has provided me with compensation and coupons in return for this post. Participation in this program is voluntary; all opinions are my own.

We just recently celebrated another birthday here in the Young family. Josh turned seven. SEVEN! I can’t believe how fast time flies by!

Josh is a big fan of chocolate, so I set out to find a new-to-us dessert that was big on the scrumptious sweet stuff just for him. I didn’t have to search long before I found the perfect recipe for a dessert using Sara Lee® pound cake.

I tweaked it just right and tempt you with the yummy result:

You know you’d like to try it!


3 cups cold milk
2 small instant chocolate pudding mix pkgs
8 ounce thawed whipped topping
1 cup chocolate syrup
1 10.75 oz Sara Lee® Pound Cake, cut into 1/2″ cubes
1 cup mini white chocolate chips

Pour milk into a large bowl. Add pudding. Beat with a wire whisk for 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Gently stir in whipped topping.

Arrange half of the cake cubes in a large serving bowl. Top with half of the pudding mix, drizzle with half of the chocolate syrup and add half cup of chocolate chips; layer a second time with remaining ingredients.

Chill for 3-4 hours before serving.

(My recipe was adapted from a recipe I found on cooks.com)

I hope you and your family enjoy this chocolatey dessert as much as we do! Let me know if you try it.

Win it!

    I would buy at least a couple of the Cheesecake Bites from Sara Lee. Why? Because they are delicious, luscious, wonderful!

    I would choose their poundcake. Davey Baby’s 59th birthda is coming in July and strawberry/blueberry shortcake made with Sara Lee pound cake would make him a very happy birthday boy. :)

  5. Stacy says

    I would probably choose the pound cake because my family loves strawberry shortcake with their cakes!

  6. Renee G says

    I love the pound cake, because my scratch versions of pound cake never turn out.

  7. Sharon says

    I would pick the Sara Lee Pecan Coffee Cake! I’ve loved it forever! It’s great for any occasion or for no reason at all…other than it’s SCRUMPTIOUS!

  8. Debbie Kennedy says

    I love Sara Lee’s Cheesecakes! (but I would never say no to any of their other cakes!)

  9. Erin E says

    I would choose the Sarah Lee Pound Cake because I love to use it for strawberry shortcake, or simply served topped with fresh peaches and whipped cream. Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

  10. Kristen says

    I would choose the French Silk Pie because I love chocolate and wouldn’t be able to make this dessert for myself since I have no idea how to make a good pie crust.

  11. Janelle says

    I would choose the coconut layer cake! It’s wonderful this time of year: light and luscious decorated with fresh blooms on a pretty table! Their pound cake and cheesecake are delectable, too, as is or dressed up with fresh fruit or used in a gorgeous crystal bowl as a trifle!

  12. wcc says

    I would love to try their recipe for the Orange Creamsicle Pound Cake. Sounds delicious! I adore Orange Creamsicles and this sounds like the perfect summer treat! Thanks for the chance! :)

  13. Amy Delong says

    the pound cake is really good and would have to look and see what other yummy treats there were to choose from

  14. Carrie K says

    I would choose the Cheesecake Bites because they look delicious, and their small size might help me with portion control.

  15. Debra F says

    I would choose the poundcake…I have a great trifle recipe similar to the one recipe you have, but uses whipped cream and tapioca and the whole family loves it.

  16. DesireeRenee says

    if i won i would get the pound cake because its so yummy and you can make so many different deserts with it!

    I would like to win the Sara Lee Pound Cake for my daughter. She always wants me to buy it, and I always forget to look for it.

  19. says

    I would say their poundcakes by far because they are so versatile but my kids would choose their dutch apple pies!
