Sinful Triple Chocolate Poke Cake

This mouthwatering Sinful Triple Chocolate Poke cake is a chocolate cake, drenched in hot fudge sauce and chocolate pudding and it is topped with a chocolate whipped cream. There could not be more chocolate here!

I have a new one for you this week that I call Sinful Triple Chocolate Poke Cake. I am just going to get right into it because it’s that good.

This is a homemade fudgy chocolate cake with chocolate pudding and a hot chocolate whipped cream. Instead of using your typical sweetened condensed milk, I used a jar of hot fudge that I drizzle over the warm cake and then filled in the holes with a chocolate pudding.

Dreamy is the only way I could describe this cake.

Then to top it off, I made a chocolate whipped cream. Whipped cream is SO easy to make. My favorite whipped to make around the holidays is Hot Chocolate Whipped Cream, which I used for this cake.

This is one of my favorite toppings.  The hot chocolate whipped cream produces a thicker whipped cream,  almost a mousse-like texture. It doesn’t have an overly strong chocolate flavor because hot chocolate is not usually rich in flavor.
