I have a friend who absolutely LOVES anything chocolate. I make this for him fairly often. He doesn't care for the nuts in his but I do, so I make his special. Here is an internet picture of the final result.

How to Make Chocolate Poke Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare the cake according to directions on the box except add half of the chopped nuts into the batter before baking.
  2. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool.
  3. Using the end of a wooden spoon, poke several holes in the cake.
  4. Slowly pour chocolate syrup into each hole. As it soakes up the syrup, go back and pour more syrup. You want it to be moist but not mushy.
  5. Cover the cake with the chocolate frosting and sprinkle the remaining nuts.
