The Eid came to an end, and my Eid celebration recipes too .. Usually in occasions like these, you need to serve your guests with something that looks elegant and easy to do in the same time. This is especially important when you want to maintain the “homemade” policy while welcoming your friends and relatives. That’s why I decided today to post this recipe for those who are searching for a stylish and simple to make dessert!

Usually what I do is, whenever I find a similar dessert recipe, I would write it down and try it first. If it turned to be a GOOD recipe, I will keep it in my cooking folder. I believe that testing dessert recipes is very essential. The reason is that when you have unexpected guests you may rely on something you have given it a try before and you know exactly how long doest it require to be ready. By doing this you can save the whole event within minutes.

Remove the container from the microwave and stir the chocolate until completely melted.

Cover each cake cube with the chocolate mixture, then place it in chocolate sandwich cookies, or biscuit, or milk chocolate. Press gently with your hands to wrap the outer layer and make sure it sticks to the internal one. It is best to do equal amounts of each covering.

*I’ve used Sara lee all butter pound cake.You can use any kind of butter pound cake you prefer.

**It is better to use different brand, to get two different tastes within one small cube.
