Ingredients

3/4 c
(1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 c
sour cream
1 1/2 c
sugar
3
eggs
1/2
to 1 tablespoon half & half
3/4 c
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 c
flour
1 c
mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

RICH CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

1 1/2 c
butter (1 stick), softened
2 c
powdered sugar
1/2 c
unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp
half & half
1/3 c
mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
2
In large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sour cream. Add sugar and blend well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Add half & half, blending well; then stir in cocoa powder and mix well. Add the flour and blend well; then fold in the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. Put batter into the prepared 9×5-inch loaf pan and bake at 325 degrees for 70-80 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean or almost clean (because it’s so dense and fudgy, the toothpick may not come out entirely clean.
3
Cool in pan about 10-15 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely (you may need to loosen the upper edges of the cake a little with a knife; then the cake will come out of the pan very easily). While the cake is cooling, you can make the frosting…

RICH CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:

Cream the softened butter and powdered sugar. Then add in the cocoa powder and blend well. Add 1 Tbsp. half & half and mix well (if you’d rather have a thinner consistency, just add more half & half). When pound cake is completely cool, spoon all of the frosting on top of the cake and spread out to cover the top–you’ll have a nice thick layer of frosting! Then garnish with the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, sprinkling down the center of the cake.
