Hi TidyMom readers! I’m Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage, and I’m so excited to be on Cheryl’s blog today. I’ve been a fan of hers forever, and I’m stoked to be here. Thank you so much for letting me share my Cookies and Cream Poke Cake!

As a southern girl, there’s one thing we can definitely sink our teeth into – DESSERT! My step-daughter Jamie had a fabulous idea for this delicious cake and brought it to dinner one night, and I begged her to share the recipe. I’m so thankful she said yes! It’s so, so simple, it’s more a method than a recipe, but it’s scrumptious all the same.

To make this cookies & cream poke cake, you’ll need: 

  • 1 box white cake mix (plus ingredients to make it by the box instructions)
  • 1 box cookies and cream pudding mix
  • 8 oz. sweetened condensed milk (or 1/2 a can)
  • 12-15 chocolate sandwich cookies, broken into tiny pieces
  • 8 oz. of Cool Whip

Make the cake mix according to directions and add in the instant pudding mix to the batter. Bake in a 9×13 baking pan at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. After it comes out of the oven, let it cool for 30 minutes before moving to the next step.

Because it’s a poke cake, you’re going to poke holes all over the top of it. Because the cake is super moist, I found that a small paring knife works best. Lots and lots of pokes work best, because you’ll need all those holes for the next part.

Drizzle 1 cup (or about half a can) of the sweetened condensed milk all over the top of the cake, then smooth it all out so it’s even. Let this sit for a couple of hours or so, to let the remaining warmth of the cake help it all soak in.

Once the cake is completely cooled, top it with a layer of Cool Whip (I used the entire 8 oz. tub) and then scatter the cookie crumbs all over the top evenly. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

It’s  and cookouts, because it can be easily transported – but honestly it’s a crowd favorite at our house and there’s never a crumb left. Hope you enjoyed my Cookies and Cream poke cake!

    HI
    I would like to know if we have to make the pudding according to the instructions and then add it to the cake mix or just add the dry ingredients…

      Gina has “add in the instant pudding mix to the batter”
