Valentine's Recipe Swap

Wishing you a FABULOUS Valentine's Day!
Thanks for stopping by!  I've got a really good recipe swap today!  

But first,  an EPIC FAIL "pinterest" item!  I love the candy -Twizzler's - and found this "healthy alternative" of drying out strawberries on pinterest - claiming that they were just like twizzlers - NOT!  

Here's my strawberries! LOL!  
So, not the same...
Happy Valentine's Day!  
We have 2 games in Altus, OK tonight - so we are traveling after school.  
So, Wednesday night - I grabbed the ingredients for this pinterest item to fix for the boys "the day before" Valentine's...! 
W.O.W. - this poke cake is WONDERFUL! 
 And at this website here - "The Country Cook" has this and MORE poke cake recipes!  Here is this recipe for your swap today - again - have a great Valentine's!  

Red Velvet Poke Cake

1 box Red Velvet cake mix
ingredients needed to make cake (eggs, oil & water)
2 (3.4 oz.) boxes instant Cheesecake-flavored pudding
4 cups milk
1 (8 oz.) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
10 Oreo cookies, crushed

  • Prepare cake mix according to package directions for a 9x13 cake. Once cake comes out of the oven, allow it to cool for just a couple of minutes. Then, with a wooden spoon handle or some other similarly-sized object, begin poking holes in the warm cake.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together dry pudding mix with 4 cups of milk.
  • Whisk until all the lumps are gone. Pour pudding over cake. 
  • Put the cake into the fridge to set and cool (about 2 hours).  
    Once your cake has completely cooled, spread on whipped topping.
  • Sprinkle with crushed Oreo cookies.
Refrigerate this cake until it's gone - which won't be long!

Remember to hug the ones you love the most, until next time...

Hey, I like the new 2013 pictures! I DO NOT like the look of those twizzlers, or whatever they were! Haha!! I'm always amused by Pinterest fails for some reason. Have a good week!
