  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 slice)

Ingredients

  • 1 (16-ounce) box white angel food cake mix
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • Dash of salt
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted

Preparation

1. Bake cake according to package instructions. Cool completely.

2. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH for 30 seconds or until melted, stirring every 10 seconds. Drizzle chocolate over cake. Combine brown sugar and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a small, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil, stirring just until sugar dissolves.
