Oreo Pudding Poke-Cake Recipe


As Father's Day creeped closer I knew finding the right treat for Brandon would prove to be difficult. You see, the man claims to hate chocolate, but really, he loves it. Which means being the amazing wife I am, I track many treats that balance chocolate and something else, anything else. 

That being said, Oreos are at the top of B's list. In fact, his list of life priorities falls something like this: Jackson, Millie, Oreos, Me. 
Ha! I kid, I kid. I'd probably be listed before Oreos, probably. :)


Thanks to hours on my favorite recipe sites, I found one that would balance his love of Oreos and chocolate.


Once the cake came together I was a little nervous. This thing was pretty chocolatey. Perhaps too much for my fickle Husband. The real test came Father's Day night as I served up some slices. And wouldn't you know, he gave the cake two thumbs up!


Simple. Sweet. Sensational. 
Try it now. Thank me later.

Ingredients: 
1 box Chocolate Cake Mix {and ingredients it calls for}
2 - 4 oz. Instant Oreo Pudding boxes {and ingredients it calls for}
Crushed Oreos 
          Directions:
1. Bake cake according to directions.
2. Just before cake is done baking, prepare the pudding mixing until all lumps are gone but so that the pudding is not completely thick.
3. While cake is still warm punch holes {with end of a wooden spoon} into the cake about an inch apart.
4. Then pour pudding over cake, spreading it evenly to ensure it's getting into those holes.
5. For several minutes, allow cake to cool. Then place into the refrigerator to set for at least an hour.
6. When preparing to serve, crush up some Oreos and spread over the cake.
