Ingredients:

  • 1 (10 3/4 oz.) frozen pound cake, thawed
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels

Pour half of the chocolate mixture over pound cake in pan, spreading evenly to within 1/4-inch of edge of pan. Cover; freeze for 1 1/2 hours or until chocolate is set.

    Worth all the time

    Jordan Young from Slidell/ LA

    This cake is by far my favorite cake. It is worth all the time that is required to put into it. I have made this Cake for every social event that I have gone to since I have found it. I get wonderful comments from everyone. The best.

    Frozen Chocolate-Covered Cappunccion Crunch Cake

    Jaime Strohm from Allen Park, MI

    What a fantastic recipe!!! I was looking for an ice cream cake recipe for my Dad for Father's Day and boy we sure weren't disappointed with this one!!! I confess I did alter the recipe a little, but it worked out good. Instead of a store bought frozen pound cake, I used my own recipe for the pound cake and baked one first. I also substituted vanilla ice cream for coffee flavored and crushed peanut butter cups. Next time I make this, I want to use a brownie layer instead of a pound cake and crushed oreos and vanilla ice cream for the ice cream layer. I've already had a request for the recipe and I've told all of my co-workers about it. Great recipe!!!! Thank you!

    carol patti from niagara Falls, NY

    I was looking for something different as a dessert for Easter Sunday. Made this cake and O my gosh! My daughter stated it well. The best tasting cake she has ever had. She thinks I should bake these and sell them to some higher end restaurants in our area. Not a bad idea but a bit of work. Very elegant cake. Will definitely make again.

    Easy to make. The end product is very delicious. Had many requests for the recipe. Took it to a church function and half was already eaten before it even got to the table to be served!

    AMAZING

    Joanna Milich from GREENEVILLE, TN

    This was simply amazing! I made it for a dinner party and everyone wanted seconds! Even my husband, who doesn't like coffee, loved it! I am definitely making this one again!

    YUMMY! A must try...

    kathy bohlman from GRAND FORKS, ND

    I made this for a group of 10 women. Everyone enjoyed this cake. Some said it looked like it came out of a magazine. It has a very nice eye appeal. BUT, the TASTE is what you should try. I thought that it would be rich. It isn't. The Combination of all is perfect. They all wanted a copy of the recipe. If time is an issue, go ahead and make it and freeze till ready to serve. I used the canned whipped cream and "decorated the top" then sprinkled crushed mmballs. I will keep this recipe on top of the "special cakes" pile. You can't go wrong. A must try!

    Cappuccino Crunch Cake

    Cynthia Loftus from JUPITER, FL

    This is a great recipe. I love malted milk balls and coffee and this is a perfect blend. Everyone at the office raved about it, even those who said they didn't normally like coffee ice cream

    Heavenly & Versatile

    Marlene Asa from FREEBURG, IL

    My husband loves anything malted: malted shakes, a chocolate malt cheesecake that I make, and now this ice-cream cake!! Since, he does not like coffee, I made this with chocolate ice cream instead of the coffee ice cream and he thought that this was the absolute best ice cream cake ever. It was a bit time consuming, because of waiting for ice cream to thaw and refreeze; but definitely worth every minute used!!

    Frozen Chocolate-Covered Cappuccine Crunch Cake

    Shelley Morse from MOORE, OK

    Very easy to make. I thought I'd be smart and start this the night before. Not a good idea. Start early in the morning for supper or for the next day. It keeps well in the freezer. Even my picky eater loved it and was looking for another piece late at night.

    Frozen Chocolate Crunch Cake

    Michelle Gibbs from Jamestown, RI

    I make this recipe for our church and it was a huge success. The cake went in a matter of minutes with a few unhappy people who did not get a piece. It was easy to make--my sister is begging for me to make one for her. This time I may try health bar candy instead of the malt balls.

    Easy, elegant, delicious

    Harriet Gore from Conway, SC

    I made this dessert to serve when our son and his wife and family came to visit. All ten of us agree that this is delicious! There was just a small piece left over which I hid in the back of the freezer to enjoy later. There were some footsteps to the freezer and a little searching, but they didn't find it!! I ate the last of it last night!

    Bonus Points From the Italian Club

    Maureen Vetromila from MOROCCO, IN

    I was invited to my husbands Italian Club last week-end for the first time. I was nervous as to what to bring....I came across this recipe and to my surprize; every one of the elder from Italy praised about this cake all night long. I have tried a good amount of recipes from this website and have NEVER been disappointed. I will make this cake many times in the future. Thank-you for this wonderful recipe. I didn't even have leftovers to bring home, will have to make it again this week-end so that my family will be able to enjoy it!

    Not for a Novice

    Vicki Cochrane from LACROSSE, WA

    I thought that this was good, but, could have done without the malted milk balls. Found the recipe not to be an easy one. I would not recommend it for an inexperienced baker. Family enjoyed it alot however. So I guess, it was worth the effort.

    Karen Buchholz from Terre Haute, IN

    I haven't used your cappuccino and malted milk balls, but I made this once with pumpkin icecream (homemade) and almonds. THANK YOU for reminding me of it! I'm SURE the coffee-flavored icecream with chocolate must be wonderful, too. I absolutely love recipes that can be altered so easily...a different desert everytime yet it is the same recipe. Definately a crowd pleaser because you make the cake to suit the crowd!

    WOW!

    Chantalle Wieland from Atkinson, NH

    This cake was unbelievably awesome! I made it for the adults at my 2 year-olds birthday party, and they couldn't get enough. It was gone within minutes. I know I'll be making this again!! Make sure to cut the pound cake thin enough so you don't run out. At about 1/3 of an inch thick I had just the right amount.

    A hit with everyone!

    Marcie Engelson from PLANO, TX

    I made this cake for a Memorial Day cookout. It was easy and delicious. The main change I made was using vanilla ice cream since it would appeal more to the kids than the coffee flavor. Excellent!

    this dessert is soooooo goooood

    SHIRLEY DIMARIA from ST THOMAS, ON

    I made this for dessert for a dinner we were having .... Boy was it good .... I couldn't find coffee ice cream without paying $5 a 1/2 pint and that's toooooo expensive ... so I used cookies and cream ice cream and added broken up chocolate cream filled sandwhich cookies .... I put whipping cream in each piece and put a piece off cookie on top ..... Looked reallllllly gooooood and tasted great .... I cut it into 16 .... This will be made many times .... I’m looking forward to trying different kinds off ice cream .....
