  • And it is officially fall.  Food blogs are filled with anything and everything pumpkin and ghoulish. Truth be told, I like Halloween, but I like the cutesy side, not the Zombies and spiders side, so my Halloween treats are generally simple, kid friendly and colorful.

    This year I made a Halloween Oreo Poke Cake.  Using boxed cake mix and instant pudding with America’s favorite cookie, you will have a crowd pleasing dessert that will feed up to 20 people, all for about $10.

    The trick to any poke cake is to generously poke it with large holes.  The pudding seeps on through, keeping the cake moist and flavorful for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

    My rule to live by, there can never be enough pokes in your poke cake.  Also, spread pudding when the cake is still warm.  The heat will assist pudding in easing into every nook and cranny.
