Waffle Cherry Brownie Poke Cake recipe
Since we’re friends, I think there is something you need to know about me. If you haven’t already guessed, I am a huge poke cake fan! I love all of the fun flavor combos, and really, the flavor possibilities are endless!!
That begs the question though … are you a fan of poke cakes and do you know what they are?
For those who do not know, the concept is pretty simple. A cake is poked with a bunch of holes and then filled with various ingredients such as pudding, gelatin, cream of coconut, or alcohol. The sky’s the limit. It’s usually finished off with some whipped topping and more yummy goodies.
In this case, I baked a chocolate fudge cake mix from a box (you can use your favorite homemade cake as long as it’s baked in a 9-in. x 13-in. baking dish), then poked it with chocolate fudge pudding. I topped all of it off with cherry pie filling, whipped topping, brownies, waffle cones, chocolate curls, and more cherries! Soooo good!!
This Waffle Cherry Brownie Poke Cake is insanely delicious! Poke cakes are great to take to potlucks or share with friends. When we have cookouts or parties, people are always impressed, and of course, the poke cakes are usually one of the first desserts gone! You can bet you’ll be bringing home an empty pan!
