Who Likes Oreos?!

A few weeks ago, I pinned a bunch of sweet stuff on Pinterest.  A friend of mine joked that it was obvious what I've been craving. :)  In all honesty though, I've been craving salty and sweet foods! 

Once I saw this Oreo Pudding Poke Cake, I knew I had to try it out.  I was lazy and used box cake mix for this recipe, but it still turned out delicious.  I think I messed up the recipe just a little because I was too anxious for it to be done.  The recipe says to make the pudding right before the cake is done so it isn't set up yet and it is still runny.  I made my pudding too early so it didn't soak into the cake as much as it should have.  The cake was still VERY moist (anyone else hate that word?!) and very delicious!

Oreo Pudding Poke Cake
*Preheat the oven according to your cake recipe (aka Betty Crocker)
-1 box chocolate cake mix
-2 (4oz.) boxes of Oreo pudding
-4 Cups of milk (the recipe calls for 2% or higher.  We don't do that here so I used skim.)
-10-15 crushed Oreos

Prepare cake as directed.  After removing cake from oven, poke holes in entire cake using a wooden spoon or straw.  Do this while the cake is still warm!
After the cake is covered in holes, prepare your pudding.  I did this before taking my cake out of the oven and it was too early.  I suggest doing it after poking the holes in order to achieve the correct consistency.  Once your pudding is ready, let it sit for about 1-2 minutes, but do NOT let it fuly thicken!  Pour the (liquidy) pudding over your cake.
Next, stick the dessert in the fridge for an hour or more.  When you are ready, sprinkel the cake with crushed Oreos and devour it like we did!
(You can see in that pic how my cake didn't really absorb the pudding like it should have.)
