ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE POKE CAKE

Since sharing the recipe for the ULTIMATE LEMON POKE CAKE last week, I received a few messages for an Ultimate Chocolate Poke Cake. Ask and ye shall receive! 😉 Instead of jell-o, I am using a chocolate pudding to fill in those poked holes. I decided to go with a similar frosting recipe that I used for the lemon poke cake. I mixed together chocolate frosting with whipped topping to make a lighter tasting frosting that goes perfectly with this chocolate cake!

WHAT OTHER CAKE MIXES AND PUDDINGS CAN I USE FOR POKE CAKES?

I have a ridiculous amount of combinations on the website here. My personal favorite is the BANANA PUDDING POKE CAKE. That one is yellow cake mix with banana pudding. There is also OREO PUDDING POKE CAKE (chocolate cake mix with Oreo Pudding), RED VELVET PUDDING POKE CAKE (red velvet cake mix with cream cheese pudding), PINEAPPLE PUDDING POKE CAKE (yellow cake mix, pineapple slices and pineapple pudding), BOSTON CREAM POKE CAKE (yellow cake with vanilla pudding and chocolate frosting) and CARROT PUDDING POKE CAKE (carrot cake mix and vanilla pudding.) The combinations are nearly endless!The Ultimate Chocolate Poke Cake recipe from The Country Cook
