1 C (2 sticks) unsalted butter, almost completely melted
2 T corn syrup
3 C (6oz) store-bought pound cake, FROZEN, cubed
1 C (4oz) chopped walnuts
1 C (4oz) whole raspberries
2 T silvered almonds
1/4 C (1 1/4oz) white chocolate, melted
1. Prep 8×8 pan: line with plastic wrap, leaving about an
inch overhang over each side. Set aside.
2. Over a simmering saucepan of water, place a heat-proof
bowl over top with chocolate, butter, and corn syrup inside
the bowl. Stir ingredients together as they melt together.
Once completely melted. Pull off the heat and set aside 1/3
C of the mixture.
3. Add chilled & cubed pound cake and walnuts into melted
chocolate mixture, and fold to combine. Spread into
prepared 8×8 pan. Flatten with a spatula, then pour the
reserved melted chocolate over top everything. Spread flat.
Immediately sprinkle with almonds and raspberries. Drizzle
with melted white chocolate.
4. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap, and let chill in the
fridge until dark chocolate is hard. Remove from the
fridge, lift dessert from pan with plastic wrap overhang.
Slice with a warmed knife (dip in hot water) to cut through
bars easily. Keep bars chilled until serving. Bars will
keep for a few days in an air-tight container.
