I am ashamed to admit how much I love Oreos. I mean, I’m a blogger and should have fancier tatebuds then ones that love and adore a premade cookie like that right? Nope. I give anything for them! Plus who doesn’t like a piece of chocolate cake? Combine the two into this Oreo Poke Cake and I’m a total goner!

This quick and easy poke cake is impressive, yet easy enough that the non-experienced baker can totally pull it off. My warning is that if you make this cake, people will become your new best friends just to get a piece. It’s amazing!


So amazing that when I made it I knew I needed it to leave my house stat because I was going to eat every last piece of it in a flash. That is, if my children didn’t get it first. I’ve never seen Miss K eat a piece of cake so fast. Then promptly say, “More Mommy?”

When I know things need to leave my house my unsuspecting neighbors get random text messages to see if they are home so I can find the food a new home. Sometimes it takes them a bit by surprise. For example I texted a neighbor asking if she was home or anyone in her family. Unfortunately, she thought I was in some kind of trouble and quickly repsonded asking was what was wrong and what she could do to help.

Uhhhh just need you to eat my cake that’s all! She thought she could handle that!

I’m guessing her two teenage boys probably helped her out with the task! Plus, it gives me a chance to swing by and say hi! It always amazes me how you can live right by someone and never see them because of life. Life is so busy! I find myself getting into a routine and I never break from it. I go about my business in my own little bubble and forget anyone else exists!

If you are guilty of this too I have the perfect remedy for the situation. Just make this Oreo Poke Cake and then go gifting it to neighbors. They’ll forgive you right away for ignoring them for years in hopes that you will continue to bring them cake like this!

I also have the warning your husband might get angry with you when you give Oreo Poke Cake away! He was not impressed that I gave most of this away and neither were the girls.

When he saw the video for this recipe his eyes lit up and quickly told me that I need to make this as soon as possible again.

I’m sure there are more neighbors that will help me eat this right?

Are you wishing you were my neighbor by now?

Oreo Poke Cake

Prep Time 00:15 Cook Time 00:00 Serves 20     adjust servings


  • 1 box chocolate cake mix (Plus ingredients to make cake)
  • 2 (4 oz.) packages of Instant Oreo pudding
  • 4 c. 2 % milk
  • 1 Container Cool Whip
  • 1 c. Crushed Oreo Cookies


  1. Make cake mix according to directions and bake in a greased 9×13 pan.
  2. When cake is done, immediately poke holes over the cake using the end of a wooden spoon in about 1 in. intervals.
  3. Let cake cool while you prepare pudding mixture. In a medium size bowl whisk together milk and pudding mix. Make sure to whisk out all of the lumps. Let the pudding mixture sit for about 2 minutes. You want it somewhat thickened but not set like pudding.
  4. Pour pudding mixture over warm cake. Allow the cake to cool for a few minutes. Put in the fridge to set up which takes about an hour.
  5. When cake is set spread Cool Whip over top and sprinkle with crushed Oreo cookies. If you don’t plan on eating all the cake just sprinkle Oreos on what you will eat or they get soggy.

    • Geri

      I’m with u, can’t wait to make this!

      • Julie Evink

        Thanks Geri!

        • Geri

          Julie I went to get instant OREO pudding & could not find it. Where do u get yours?

          • Julie Evink

            I just found right with all the pudding mixes in the grocery store!

  • JO

    You didnot say anything about FROSTING; WHAT DO YOU USE?

    • Julie Evink

      Cool Whip! It’s in the directions now.

      • Geri

        Never did find cookies & cream pudding. My hubby is the baker & he used Hershey’s white chocolate instant pudding.

  • Geri

    Thought it was going to be richer. It was ok though

  • Mary Robins

    I live in Ontario Canada, does anyone no where they sell Oreo pudding here.

    • Julie Evink

      You could use plain vanilla pudding and grind up Oreos and add to it! I think that would work!

  • Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction

    It’s been too long since I’ve had Oreos! Love easy cakes like this!

  • Homes & Weddings

    This looks like such a great recipe. As a person with a chocolate “problem”, I can see there might not be much leftover to share. Enjoyed reading your write up to the recipe.

    P.S If anyone is looking for a special Sweets sign for their entertaining table, this would probably be perfect:
