Easily, one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations is chocolate and coconut.  Maybe it goes back to my love of the Almond Joy candy bars, or the chocolate coconut candy that my mom would make at Christmas time.  Since I absolutely love coconut cake (be sure to check out my Coconut Cream Poke Cake) as well as chocolate cake, it would only be natural to bring those two loves together in this poke cake recipe.

This easy, delicious chocolate poke cake is super simple to make.  It starts with a basic chocolate cake mix, with just a few add-ins.  One of those add-ins that adds some amazing coconut flavor is Cream of Coconut.  This coconut product is actually one I’ve used in a number of recipes, including my Coconut Cream Pound Cake.  The coconut flavor is subtle, but it also keeps the cake super moist.

Here are the easy steps to making this amazing Chocolate Almond Joy Poke Cake:

Step 1: Bake Cake and while still hot, poke holes

Like any good poke cake recipe, as soon as this cake comes out of the oven, you need to poke holes into it.  You can use the end of a wooden spoon, or to create smaller holes, like I did here, you can use the larger end of a chop stick.

 

Step 2: Pour in the Cream of Coconut into the holes of the warm cake

While the cake is still warm, drizzle a 1/2 cup of the cream of coconut into the holes and over the top of the cake.  This will not only add amazing flavor to the cake, it will keep it wonderfully moist and delicious.  Let the cake cool by refrigerating or just let come to room temperature.

 

Step 3: Mix together the whipped topping and spread over the cooled cake

Sprinkle on the sliced almonds over the top of the coconut.  I really love using these type of almonds – they’re perfect for desserts and add a great crisp texture to each bite of cake.

Step 6: Drizzle Hot Fudge over the top of the cake

An amazing way to top off this cake is to add a bit more chocolate.  This hot fudge ice cream topping is perfect and makes the cake look just as amazing as it tastes.
