Chocolate Peanut Butter Poke Cake

This rich, decadent, chocolate peanut butter cake is so moist it melts in your mouth with every bite. It's very rich so you might need a small slice, but it's so good you'll be going back for more.

The cake is ready with only a few minutes of work on your part because it all starts with a chocolate boxed cake mix. I like devil's food cake, but any chocolate cake mix will work.

This cake is perfect for an easy recipe that will impress a crowd. It's truly mouthwatering and delicious. I'm already craving it, and can't wait to make it again soon.

You'll be licking your fingers clean, and the rubber spatula, with every step of making this cake! The chocolate cake batter. The peanut butter condensed milk looks just like caramel but tastes like peanut butter perfection. Then the peanut butter whipped cream is creamy, light, and peanut butter.

  1. I just made this delicious sounding dessert for a dinner tonight, but when I whipped the peanut butter whipped cream In my stand mixer (with the wire whisk attachment) the solids separated from the liquids and began splashing the liquid everywhere. What did I do wrong?

    1. JudyH, my thought is that you had the mixer too high of a speed.

  2. Made this cake it was a hit . My grandson said best thing he has ever tasted!! Thank you for your recipe.
