Chocolate Caramel Poke Cake: Table for Seven

Hello internet friends...how was your weekend?  Ours was really nice, kinda busy and super warm.  It was about 90 degrees.  Thank goodness for air conditioning. 😌  

On Saturday, we had our local summertime parade.  It is the first neighborhood we have lived in that a parade literally comes down our street. Everything gets really busy, but, it's awesome and lots of fun. My husband and oldest were even in the parade this year, so it was even better.  

Speaking of days of the week, it is Monday.  But, we have cake. 

Because, as mentioned, it's Monday.  

Sometimes, you just need to start your week with cake. Especially chocolate cake. 

This particular cake is a poke cake.  Meaning, you poke the top of your warm cake, then, drizzle it with something delicious until it soaks right into it.  This one is soaked up with some very nice caramel topping.  We also have it topped with chocolate chips and vanilla frosting drizzled on top. 

It's sooo good and  really simple to make. Tons of chocolate-caramel-goodness to this one. 

You won't be disappointed!

Prep Time: 01:30
Cook Time: 00:40
Ingredients (Serves: 12-15)
  • 1 box, dry chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup caramel sauce
  • 1/2 cup serving from a can of vanilla frosting
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, beat together dry cake mix, milk, eggs and melted butter until fully combined and smooth.
Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
Sprinkle top of batter with chocolate chips and press them down lightly.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cake cool for 30 minutes.
With a long fork, pork holes all over the surface of the cake. Spraying the fork with non stick cooking spray makes this job a little less messy and easier.
Pour caramel sauce on top. Then, have cake sit for 1 hour and let caramel soak in.
Microwave frosting for about 15-30 seconds until it is thinned out and easy to drizzle.
Drizzle top of cake with frosting.
Keep leftovers covered in refrigerator.
