red velvet delight

Delight really isn't in the name.
It is just delightful.
Distastrous if you're counting calories.
I brought a pan to work today for a birthday celebration and had some left over to bring home.
Photo op supplied and prop duly eaten.

I thought that this recipe came from a blog via Pinterest but I can't find it now.
I really can't take credit for the idea.
I will take credit for the baking of this one.

Red Velvet Poke Cake

1 box of red velvet cake mix
(each box I purchased had filling with it that I didn't use)
1 large box of vanilla Jello pudding
approx 4 oz cream cheese
8 oz cool whip
crushed Oreo cookies

Bake the cake as directed on the box ina 9x13 pan (saving the filling for something carrot cake tasting instead). When cool, poke holes in the cake using a rounded spoon handle. Prepare pudding mix as directed. In separate bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add small amount of pudding to the cream cheese mix and mix until smooth. Add the cream cheese mix to the rest of the pudding and fold in. I then cut a small corner of a gallon size ziploc bag and filled the bag with the pudding mix. Poking the cut corner of the bag into the hole into the cake, start filling each with pudding/cream cheese mix. When holes will contain no more, pour the rest over the entire cake and spread evenly. Cover and chill in refrigerator until pudding is firmly set. Top with softened Cool Whip. Crush about 1/3 package of Oreos and spread over the cake.

At this point if you're intending to bring this dessert to some function you place a note written with permanent marker on a napkin or paper towel onto the cake pan that says "Do Not Touch This Cake!" With any luck the kids will see the note before they devour the delicious dessert.

Happy baking!
