I cannot believe that it is almost Valentine’s Day. What is everyone doing for Valentine’s Day? We don’t have any set plans yet, but we usually go out for dinner on one of the weekends near Valentine’s Day, whenever we can get one of our parents to watch our son. Because we don’t actually go out on the actual day, we will usually make a nice dinner and make a decadent dessert.
One of my favorite desserts to make is poke cake. You can’t get much more decadent than that in a dessert that is so easy to make. Poke Cakes are so easy to make because they start out with a box cake mix and then just add sweetened condensed milk and other toppings. I love how easy they are to make and everyone thinks that I spent hours in the kitchen making the cake.
For Valentine’s Day I decided to make a Red Velvet Oreo Poke Cake. This cake is so delicious and is the perfect decadent dessert for Valentine’s Day or it would be good for any occasion. The poke cake starts out with a box of red velvet cake. Then once it is baked and cooled, you poke holes in the cake and add sweetened condensed milk, hot fudge, and Oreos, yum! Then on top is a combination of whipped cream and cream cheese icing. I added cream cheese icing because I think that it goes really well with red velvet cake. Then to top it all off is more Oreos.
This cake was so good, we all loved it. I loved the flavor of the red velvet cake with the Oreos and hot fudge. The cream cheese icing added a great flavor to it as well. I plan on making this again for Valentine’s Day and I cannot wait. Looking at the pictures, makes me so hungry! I might not be able to wait until Valentine’s Day to make this cake again. I hope you all enjoy it!
