Death By Chocolate Poke Cake
For the Cake
box chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
(14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
semisweet chocolate chips, melted
Chocolate shavings, for garnish
For the Frosting
2 1/2 c.
pure vanilla extract
Pinch of kosher salt
heavy cream (plus more if necessary)
- Make cake: Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a 9″-x-13″ pan with cooking spray and dust with cocoa powder. Prepare chocolate cake mix according to package directions and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely.
- Poke cake all over with the handle of a wooden spoon. In a small bowl, mix together sweetened condensed milk and melted chocolate. Pour mixture into the holes.
- Make frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt. Beat in heavy cream, adding more by the tablespoon until consistency is creamy but can hold peaks.
- Spread frosting all over cake with an offset spatula and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
