Halloween is such a fun time for kids. It's the time when it's OK to do something gross and creepy with food and kids will think it's awesome. There is nothing better for a party than a cake so I'm going to show you step by step how to make this easy Halloween Poke Cake with “toxic ooze” bubbling up underneath.
How to make a Poke Cake
Poke cakes are really easy and fun to make. There are a dozen different flavors you can combine, but the process is always the same. First, you will bake your cake in a 9 x 13 casserole dish. When you take it out of the oven use the end of a wooden spoon or a dowel and poke holes all over the top of the cake.
Next, make your pudding and spread it all over the top. I bang the pan on my counter a few times to get the Jello pudding to go down into the holes. I promise it's a little cathartic as well.
For the next layer I mixed Cool Whip with cocoa powder to make Chocolate Cool Whip and spread that on top.
I love displaying it on this cute spider runner to give it that spooky effect.
