S’mores Poke Cake

Oh boy! I don’t know about you, but my Pinterest board has been LOADED with poke cakes lately. Any time I browse, I come across chocolate cakes, Boston cream, tiramisu, etc. All of them look so yummy and like something my family would love.

I decided last Friday to get to work on a new dessert. Since I already had boxed chocolate cake mix on hand (don’t judge, sometimes a Cookin’ Chick gets tired and needs a shortcut, hehe), along with some mini marshmallows, I decided to go the “‘s’mores” cake route. Not only was this incredibly simple to make (my youngest kiddo helped me), but it was definitely a hit! This recipe makes a 9 x 13 pan worth of cake, so plenty to share!!

When you need a good dessert and don’t have a lot of time…..definitely make this! A crowd winner for sure!! Plus….s’mores just scream summer, right?!
