Step-by-Step Instructions: Crafting Your Mounds Poke Cake


Follow these straightforward steps to bring this tantalizing dessert to life:

  1. Prepare the Cake: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) as instructed on the cake mix packaging. Mix and bake the chocolate cake in a greased 9×13 inch dish according to the package directions.
  2. Poke and Infuse: While the cake is still warm, use a fork to poke holes evenly across its surface. Combine the sweetened condensed milk with coconut cream, then pour the mixture over the cake, ensuring it seeps into the holes for a moist and flavorful base.
  3. Cool and Layer: Allow the cake to cool completely before proceeding. Once cooled, generously layer the shredded sweetened coconut over the cake, adding a delightful texture and hint of sweetness to each slice.
  4. Frosting Finale: Warm the chocolate frosting until it reaches a pourable consistency, then evenly spread it over the coconut layer, covering the cake with a velvety layer of chocolatey goodness.
  5. Garnish and Chill: For an extra touch of elegance, sprinkle additional shredded coconut or almond slivers over the frosting. Place the cake in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the layers to set and the flavors to meld together perfectly.
