{Recipe Recap} Death by Chocolate BTS Poke Cake

Quite a title, huh?  But there’s a lot going on here, lots of goodies coming together to make one giant goodie, so you want to make sure the name does it justice.


The darker parts of the cake are where the Hershey’s Syrup was poured over the cake that I had poked holes in, and it settled down into the cake.  The recipe actually called for chocolate Cool Whip Frosting, which I’ve seen, but I couldn’t find this time around, not even after looking in THREE grocery stores.


On top, I used crumbled Oreos, Nestle Buncha Crunch, and Magic Shell as called for in the recipe.  Heather later said that the Crunch bites made the dessert.  I admit, I liked the change in texture they offered plus they were just plain tasty.


This dessert was easy to make, very customizable, and simply delicious.  I thoroughly enjoyed eating my model when our photoshoot was over.


I made the Oatmeal Cream Pies that Chelle requested as well as some simple yellow cupcakes with the chocolate frosting from that chocolate cookie cake from the other week.


One of Chelle and Jeremy’s friends, Jeff, turned 50 the day before the Chicken Stew so his wife asked Chelle if I’d mind making some cupcakes.  You know I can’t resist whipping up a birthday treat.  I made 12 regular-sized cupcakes and 36 minis.


So…yellow cake?


Or chocolate cake?


You can’t lose either way.
