Red Velvet Poke Cake

Red Velvet Poke Cake

Yep. Kinda obsessed with the ol' poke cake.

I actually have yet another one coming soon. But since I'm 100% convinced that you can't have too many poke-cake recipes, I'm not going to worry about it one little bit. The world cannot have too many poke cakes.

And it's possible that I say this about EVERY poke cake I make, but this one is my favorite. There's actually no contest. This is the best. Until the next one, I know, but still. So far - this is the best.

Red velvet cake. Sweet cream and fudge infusion. Cream cheese whipped cream frosting. Did you catch that? CREAM CHEESE WHIPPED CREAM FROSTING.

It's a thing. It's a gooooood thing.

I did make a homemade red velvet cake using my old-standby recipe, but you can totally use a box mix. There are so many other flavors going on that no one will notice, and it will save you some time.

Do NOT, though, use store-bought whipped topping. Make your own. It takes 5 minutes, and it's the best thing you'll ever have. This is a no-Cool-Whip zone here. Please...I implore you. Just try this frosting. Humor me. Please. (Yes, I'm begging.)

The cream cheese helps to thicken and stabilize the whipped cream. It's not too sweet, it's just-right-tangy, and it takes this cake to a whole different level. And then, you drizzle it with chocolate syrup and guys- it's fabulous. The cake is cool and creamy, the frosting cuts the sweetness and adds a silky quality, and the chocolate brings it all together like one big poke-cake-happy-family.

And, how perfect would this cake be for Valentine's Day? I garnished with my favorite red heart sprinkles and a few mini chocolate chips, and let me tell you - it took everything I had not to eat more than my little tasting plate.

So good.

I hope you try it, and I hope you love it! Please share it with your friends, too!
