If you’re looking for an easy dessert for Oreo lovers, you need to make this delicious super easy Oreo Poke Cake! It’s basically a chocolate cake stuffed with Oreo pudding and Oreo cookies and topped with even more Oreos. Completely over the top but soooo good!

Let me start by saying that this is in no way, shape or form and diet recipe, although you probably guessed that by looking at the picture! I know I just shared a recipe for poke cake last week, but the kids requested an OREO Poke Cake for dessert the other day, so of course, I just had to comply with their wishes.

We’ve been having light desserts all summer long, but even though it’s still hot as anything outside, sometimes, you just gotta indulge. And this poke cake stays nice and cool in the fridge, so it’s a wonderful dessert to enjoy even in warm weather.

How to Make an Oreo Poke Cake

Like I said, I didn’t even attempt to keep the calories low in this chocolate poke cake. I used devil’s food cake mix, but you can use a chocolate cake from scratch if you want. When the cake was mostly cool, the kids poked holes all over the cake.

Since we’ve been making so many poke cake recipes, we’ve been mixing up the way we poke  holes in the cake. Since this cake will have crushed cookies in it, we used a mix of large and small holes so that the cookies would fit into the holes.

Next, we made some Oreo instant pudding and added some crushed Oreo cookies to it. If you can’t find Oreo pudding, you can use vanilla pudding and add crushed cookies to that. Then, we poured the mixture all over the cake.

Spread the pudding mixture over the cake, using a spatula. Be sure to get the pudding into the holes.

We topped the cake off with Cool Whip and even more of those tasty crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, plus a little chocolate syrup. I think if you’re going to make an OREO poke cake, you need to all out!

Do you want to know what makes this cake taste even better? Serving generous portions while your kids chant O-Ree-O, O-Reee-Yo to the tune of the song sung by the witch’s guards in the Wizard of Oz. Yep, we’re a crazy bunch!

I know there are tons of OREO poke cake recipes floating around out there. Have you ever made one? The Hubs and I enjoyed our little slices, and of course, the kiddos practically inhaled theirs. But, because it’s so rich, we did manage to stretch it out for three desserts!
