Something Fun: Double Chocolate Poke Cake

Do you ever have the urge to make something fun? Something that everyone has made before and knows how to make?

And it tastes so good.....

I was in the mood for something fun today. A poke cake!

I used a dark chocolate cake mix, milk chocolate pudding, and crushed Nutter Butters on top.

This recipe is linked to:

Lark's Country Heart

And:


Finger pointing; let me tell you a little about that.

My slide-show screen saver is made up of my food creations. My son, whom I hardly ever see, and only lives 7 miles away, stands in front of my computer screen pointing his finger, with his mouth open, making grunting sounds, saying "When did you make that?", "UGG, when did you make that?", "I never had any of that!"......

I have news for my son; "If you would come and see your mom more often you would get some of that, and that, and that."

There are only three of us left in the house, and when a cake is made I try and find a home for part of it or it will go to waste (which I do not like).

I poked the holes in the cake, got it all assembled with pudding, placed in the frig to chill, and a friend of mine showed up.

Perfect timing!

She took half of the poke cake home with her.

Instead of using milk for my (large box) pudding, I used Silk PureAlmond. It gave the pudding a nutty flavor.

This is just a fun, fun, fun kind of cake.

The crushed Nutter Butter cookies on the top sent this cake to a whole new level. Chocolate and peanut butter. Who doesn't love that?

"How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"
Psalm 119:103

God's Word makes us wise - wiser than our enemies and wiser than any teachers who choose to ignore it. True wisdom goes far beyond the collection of (books) knowledge; it is the application of knowledge, and applying it in a life-changing way. Intelligent or experienced people are not necessarily wise. Wisdom comes from allowing what God teaches us, and how He directs us. Using that knowledge we should guide and teach others.
