Chocolate Pudding Poke Cake

Made From Pinterest
Course Dessert


  • 1 Devil's Food or Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
  • Whatever ingredients are listed on the box to make the cake.
  • 1 box 3.4 oz. Instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 box 5.9 oz Instant chocolate pudding
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 1 jar of Mrs. Richardsons' Hot Fudge
  • 1 8 oz container of Cool Whip
  • 1 12 oz bag of semi sweet mini chocolate chips


  • Prepare your cake as per the instructions on the cake box in a 9x13 cake pan.
  • After taking it out of the oven, poke holes in the cake with the end of a wooden spoon or a straw.
  • Mix 2 cups of the milk with the smaller box of instant pudding. Quickly pour over your cake trying to fill in the holes.
  • Remove the lid from the jar of hot fudge and microwave until easily spreadable. I put mine in for about 15-20 seconds but your microwave temp may vary.
  • Spread the hot fudge on top of your cake and let cool.
  • When the cake is completely cooled, mix the last 1 cup of milk with the larger box of instant chocolate pudding then quickly and carefully fold in the Cool Whip.
  • Spread on top of the hot fudge layer.
  • Finally, layer the entire bag of mini chocolate chips over the whipped cream layer.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
