Mounds Pound Cake

Gary Day


After making a coconut cream cheese pound cake, I felt it was missing something, so after a little experimenting I added some more ingredients and the dark cocoa and came up with the closest thing to a mounds candy bar in a pound cake. Hope you enjoy this as much as everyone that has tried it has, so instead of keeping this to myself, here it is for all to try and share.
