"Poke cakes are one of my, moist and just delicious. To make this even more decadent, use a layer of hot fudge sauce first, then the caramel sauce. Takes it to a whole new level!"

"This is our favorite poke cake. Other types don't have as much flavor. Caramel and chocolate go so well together and the whipped topping makes it creamy and rich!"

"I made the cake yesterday. It was good, a very easy desert to make. Great for a BBQ. I think when i make it again I'm going to add a Choc Ganache frosting instead of whip cream."
