grilled chocolate pound cake sandwiches

We are back from Belize.  The food in Belize was great but, they did not serve much in terms of dessert.  We were both craving sweets but, I did not have time to bake today.  Lucky for us I had a pound cake in the freezer.  With very little effort we had a delicious dessert.  The little guy loved this dessert and continued to talk about chocolate sandwiches the next day.  He thought they were so fun and tasty.  I think a layer of peanut butter with the chocolate or nutella would also work well.

Grilled Chocolate Pound Cake Sandwiches
Adapted from: Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey

1 loaf pound cake
1 cup finely chopped semisweet chocolate
3-4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Slice the pound cake into eight 1 inch slices.
Divide the chocolate into 4 equal portions and mound on 4 of the slices.  Top each with the remaining slices to form a sandwich.  Press gently to seal.
Melt the unsalted butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook until bubbly and starting to brown.  Add the sandwiches to the skillet and cook 1-2 minutes on each side.  The sandwiches should be golden brown with the chocolate filling is melted and gooey.
