Oreo Poke Cake

This is all over Pinterest.

It's called "Oreo Poke Cake."

It's a similar concept of "Holy Cow Cake," or "Better than Sex" cake . . .or whatever you call this type of cake!

Three reasons to make this cake:
  1. It's easy.
  2. It's not "heavy" -- so you can eat more of it . . .if you wanted too!
  3. It's versitile.  This is only the beginning of the possible flavor combinations!
I made this over the 4th of July celebration.

Not everyone ate it . . . but those who did, really liked it!

You might be wondering, "Who wouldn't eat that cake?"

I know, right?

It looks delicious!

It's moist.

It's creative!

It's my mom . . .she wouldn't try it.  She said, "Uhhh, that's way too much chocolate for me!"


Oreo Poke Cake

1 box chocolate cake mix (with listed ingredients)
2 large boxes oreo instant pudding
4 cups of cold milk
1 small container cool whip

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Make cake, according to directions on the back of the box.  Baking in a 9X13 pan.

Measure out the milk and have ready.

Pour the dry pudding into a large bow.

Once the cake is done, remove from the oven.

Mix the milk and pudding together, stirring until it begins to thicken.  Allow it to sit a couple of minutes to thicken a bit.  You don't want it thick like pudding, but you don't want it runny either. 

Using a wooden spoon, poke holes in the cake.  (I probably do 6-8 holes across and 8-10 holes down.)

After poking the holes, pour the pudding mix over the cake.

Allow to cool completely.

Frost with whipped topping, if desired, and top with crumbled oreo cookies.

Keep refrigerated.
