Classic pound cake gets a chocolate boost in this rich dessert that's finished with a decorative drizzle of melted chocolate.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 cups NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, divided
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups packed light brown sugar
