What? Never heard of poke cake? A poke cake is a cake that you poke holes in after you bake it. I wish I had an article to share with you about this, but no dice. So you will have to trust me on this one.

This Poke Cake is a chocolate cake filled with Caramel Ice Cream topping topped with whipped cream and heath toffee bits, which is basically toffee bits. How yummy is that? Caramel and Chocolate? How can you possibly resist this recipe?

Tips
  • If the caramel sauce is too thick to pour over the cake, you can microwave it for about 1 minute.

What I think makes this poke cake is the heath toffee bits. If you happen to live in an area where you don’t have access to heath toffee bits, you can use toffee bits or you can make your own by processing a toffee bar in your food processor.
