If you are a fan of Oreo or Cookies and Cream you will love this easy Oreo Poke Cake Recipe. This past weekend the kiddos had been asking for a cake for dessert and I knew that I wanted to use the Oreo Pudding that I had scored with a coupon. It was time to get a bit creative. My kids and hubby consume Oreo Cookies like crazy. I try to keep a stash in our adult snack hiding spot. So I grabbed my Oreo Pudding and my Oreo’s and whipped up this yummy cake. I have always loved poke cakes since I was a child. I think I shared that with you when I posted our Creamsicle Poke Cake Recipe with you a few weeks ago.
Oreo Poke Cake Recipe
Cookies and Cream Pudding is absolutely yummy on it’s own but when you poke it in a chocolate cake the yumminess is kicked to a whole other level. When enjoying a piece for our evening dessert the hubby even commented that it tasted like a high end dessert that you would have paid a small fortune for at a nice restaurant.
The ingredients for this Oreo Poke Cake are so simple. The recipe is just a few prepackaged items tossed together to make an over the top perfect cake. I found our Oreo Pudding at Walmart (I was surprised Kroger did not carry Oreo flavor).
1 box Chocolate Cake Mix
1/2 pack of Oreo Cookies
1 large box instant Oreo Pudding
2 cups milk
8 oz Cool Whip
Preheat oven to 350.
Chop up the Oreos into large pieces.
Prepare the chocolate cake following box directions.
Coat sides and bottom of a 9×13 dish with shortening.
Pour batter into prepared dish.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Whisk together milk and pudding mix until smooth.
Poke holes all around the top of the cake.
Pour pudding evenly over the cake to allow it to soak into all of the holes.
Sprinkle the top with about half of the chopped Oreos.
Allow to cool completely.
Top with whipped topping and sprinkle with remaining chopped cookies.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
This cake was polished off in just one day at our house. It was a cake recipe that everyone could not get enough of. I am now planning to take this as my dessert to pass for our Labor Day grill out. I know it will be a hit.
