HOW TO MAKE BETTER THAN SEX CAKE:

  1. Mix and prepare the cake per the directions on the back of the box.
  2. While the cake is baking, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate syrup until smooth.
  3. Once the cake is done baking, start poking holes in it with a fork all over while still warm.
  4. Drizzle the condensed milk mixture all over the cake, I like to take a spatula to move the filling around so it soaks into the holes of the cake and doesn’t all run off the sides.
  5. Allow the cake to cool to room temperature.

  1. Once the cake is cool, make the topping by whisking the whole milk and pudding mix until smooth.
  2. Whisk in the chocolate syrup.
  3. Whisk in the whipped topping a little at a time until fully mixed in with no streaks, it may be a little lumpy, but that’s okay.
  4. Smooth the whipped topping mixture all over the cake; there is a lot, but use it all. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours to chill and set, even better overnight.

This version has an Oreo twist! It adds a delightful crunch and extra chocolate flavor to the classic chocolate poke cake.

As far as I’m concerned, it is far superior to the original. Just give it a try and you’ll see for yourself!

Devil’s food cake mix is my favorite for its deep chocolate flavor, but feel free to use any chocolate cake batter you like.

Oreos and pudding mix combine really well with a variety of flavors. You could even change up the flavor of Oreos to match!

Absolutely! If you have a favorite chocolate cake recipe, you can use it as the base for this decadent dessert.

Add some homemade whipped cream to the top of the cake for even more yumminess. As far as I’m concerned, homemade is always better!

However, traditional poke cakes always use boxed cake mixes, so keep that in mind!

This decadent cake can be altered in so many yummy ways. Here are just a few!

  • Heath toffee bits for extra crunch
  • Chocolate chips for more chocolaty bites
  • Caramel drizzle for a sweet twist
  • Fresh berries for a fruity addition
  • Sprinkles for a fun touch
  • Coconut flakes for a tropical flavor
  • Peanut butter chips for a nutty taste
  • Chopped nuts for added texture
  • Crushed candy bars for a unique topping
  • Mini marshmallows for a gooey element

Sure thing! I always like to have a few subs available, just in case. Check these out!

  • Yellow cake mix or white cake mix instead of devil’s food
  • Homemade caramel sauce instead of chocolate syrup
  • Gluten-free cake mix for a gluten-free version
