I have made many poke cakes in my day and I just love this one. I like the fact that it has just enough chocolate and uses a yellow cake and not a chocolate one. Don’t get me wrong, the chocolate one’s are delicious too but I think this one gives you more of the peanut butter flavor and for me that’s what it’s all about!! So I would use a white or yellow cake mix for this to get the full peanut butter flavor.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Poke Cake

  • 1 box yellow cake mix, plus  the ingredients to make  the cake
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1  cup chocolate syrup ( I use Hershey’s )
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 8 oz cool whip, thawed
  • 1 (16oz) can chocolate frosting
  1. Prepare cake according to package directions, adding in 2/3 cup peanut butter before mixing.  Bake cake in a  greased 9 x 13-inch glass pan.
  2. While cake is baking , mix sweetened condensed  milk and chocolate syrup together and blend  it well.
  3. When the cake is done and while it’s still hot, poke holes in it with a fork  or  end of a wooden spoon.
  4.  Pour milk mixture over the cake. Allow cake to cool completely.
  5. Carefully combine chocolate frosting and Cool Whip. Mixing it well.
  6. Spread over the top of cake. Chill and enjoy .
