Thanksgiving is all about food….its a no brainer that after all the deliciousness of the main meal…dessert is a must!!! Traditionally Pies are the way everyone goes….but I wanted to do something different. At the gathering at my friend’s place…we are all chocolate lovers, so after trying to find some chocolate based pies… which had raw eggs (for the mousse) or some form of soft cheese (cream cheese, mascarpone) that I can’t eat 😦
As I was about to give up….my husband remembered this chocolate poke cake that had showed up on him Facebook timeline (somebody in his friend’s list had liked the post). So he went and searched for it…..and yayyy for us…. we were going to have a dessert!!
So here is the recipe… click on the cake name to go to the original post by Lindsay at Live, Love and Sugar.

Since we all like just the right amount of sweetness in our dessert, I added 1/4 cup of sugar in the whipped topping. With the condensed milk…it turned out just perfect. I am not a fan of the ready chocolate syrup, so I made my own. The conclusion….. OMG DELICIOUS!!!! YUM! YUM! YUM! It was a hit…. so much so that I did not get chance to get a picture of the slice.
Definitely worth a try and easy to make too! Nothing like making those holes and watching the chocolate disappear in them 😉
This is all for today,
Until next time,
