Peanut Butter Chocolate Poke Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + chilling
This cake was awesome! I made it for the first time and took it to a friend's party and it was a hit. Yes it was kind of ugly at first, so I called it Tracey's ugly cake. But the finished product was gorgeous and it was delicious. Going to make another one for my daughter birthday. And put her favorite candy bar on top.!
This cake is great for those who love peanut butter and chocolate! Made it for a bunch of teenage girls' sleepover and it didn't make it until the morning! Couple of the girls asked for me to print it out for their Moms! Very easy!
This is the BEST cake for peanut butter lovers! I used a large wooden spoon to make holes and they were ugly! The frosting didnt even cover the messy look. I was embarassed to take the cake to my luncheon but i put a dollop of cool whip on top of each piece an after a taste no one cared! I'm not a real peanut butter fan and i liked it! I am making it again for Easter dinner. Everyone who tastes iT wants the receipe. I had no problems with the cake except my stupidity in using such a big spoon...tho that hole did soak up allot of the peanut butter mix!
This cake turned out to be a big hit! Because I started making it so late in the day, I put the cake and the frosting mixture in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning I just put the frosting in the microwave for about 20 seconds to soften it. The only thing that I did different is that I only used about one cup instead of 2 cups of the peanut butter mixture because I thought it might be too much. Therefore I would probably make half of the mixture the next time since I threw alot of it away. Again this tastes fantastic! Will make again!

This cake is fantastic! Made the nutella version and made my own chocolate cake recipe rather than a box mix. Next time I would make the frosting for the top a little differently to thicken it up, but it was really really tasty!
I loved this recipe! This is my first time trying a poke cake, but it certainly won't be my last! Initially the icing is runny, but it's so it absorbs into the cake. If you put the remaining icing in the fridge like the directions say, it's the perfect spreading consistency. The overall taste was delicious! I if you like chocolate and peanut butter, this recipe is for you!
I made this tonight, and everyone was quite pleased. cakes typically do soak up what's being poured on top. Crazy. I know. And... it just gets better as it sits covered in fridge. Very good.
Deserves a negative rating. Everything about it was horrible. Chilling the cake & frosting was a big mistake which caused the cake to soak up everything and become gummy, heavy and disgustingly thick. Ours is in the garbage after one piece (not eaten). Don't make this! Awful, horrid, disgusting.
This did not turn out well. The frosting mixture all ran off the cake and was unattractive. And the cake with the peanut butter mixture and frosting tasted like eating liquid sugar.
