Snickers Poke Cake Recipe – chocolate cake, caramel, whipped cream, peanuts and chocolate sauce – OMG! There is NEVER any left! People go nuts over this cake!!
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you already know about this cake. I made this cake for Chicken Legs birthday this past weekend. He actually came up with this cake and I baked it for him.
This cake was over the top! It is similar to some of the other candy bar cakes we’ve made recently, but on steroids. This cake was actually better the second day (if you can wait that long). Be warned – this is super rich. Make sure you have plenty of people to share it with!
