Mint Chocolate Poke Cake – moist chocolate cake covered with hot fudge, chocolate pudding and then topped with mint whipped cream. A chocolate and mint dream come true!
Tomorrow my little guy turns 10 years old. Double digits!! That is kind of a big deal. I can’t even believe that he is that old already. On a weekly and monthly basis time seems to go by quickly, but then you have kids. The kids get older, and all of the sudden they are real people. It just a few years he will be in high school, driving, and even dating. I can’t take it. He needs to stop growing up so quickly! I have heard of families doing special trips and things when their child turns 10. Neither my husband or I grew up with anything like that, so I don’t know that we are. But if you have traditions, leave a comment below, I might change my mind!
Poke Cakes. Have you had them? Have you made them? They are incredible easy, and one of the best things ever. If you have never made one, make this the one you try. It starts with a box cake mix, and then you just dress it up. For this mint version I used Ande’s baking chips as well as chopped up a few of the full mints. I wanted lots of mint and chocolate flavor. I made this mint chocolate poke cake for the ladies at my cooking club, and they raved about it. Everyone brought home multiple pieces to share (or so they said) with their families.
If you don’t know what a poke cake is, it is really simple. You bake a cake according to the package directions. Then you take it out of the oven and poke holes all over the top. You can use a knife, fork, handle of a wooden spoon, or whatever you have. Then for this one, you pour hot fudge and chocolate pudding over the top. It gets into the all the holes you poked, and makes the cake incredible moist and full of favor. Then it is topped with a mint flavored whipped cream. So decadent, rich and good. This is the first poke cake I have on the blog, but I am guarantee it will not be the last.
