Print Recipe

I couldn’t wait any longer for Reeses to make a coffee flavor for one of their delicious treats! So I sprang into action with one of the easiest desserts ever…...Poke cake!

Finally I’ve done it, a reese coffee poke cake! With a fudge cake as my base and simply adding instant espresso to the cake mix for a rich mocha flavor. Secondly smother creamy peanut butter pudding all over it and top with cool whip and mini reeses!  

Ingredients:

  • 1 box chocolate fudge cake mix, plus ingredients required on the box
  • 3 tablespoons instant espresso powder, divided
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 box chocolate fudge instant pudding
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip
  • 12 Reese’s peanut butter cups, quartered
  • Additional instant espresso powder, to garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Prepare the cake mix according to box directions, stirring in 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder until well-combined.
  3. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and bake 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out with a few crumbs.
  4. Remove the cake from the oven, and using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes all over the top.
  5. Working quickly, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, peanut butter, and instant pudding until just-combined. Pour pudding mixture evenly over the cake, smoothing it into all the holes. Chill the cake for 4 hours.
  6. Microwave 2 cups chocolate chips, heavy cream, and 1 tablespoon of instant espresso powder on 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth and well-combined, about 1 minute total. Pour chocolate mixture evenly over the cake, then chill once more until set.
