Oreo Pudding Poke Cake

It's Friday night. At my home we will all need to unwind and why not do it whilst enjoying chocolate cake. We love us a good chocolate cake but when you poke holes all over that cake and then cover it with two boxes of Oreo cookie pudding and crushed Oreos on too of that well then we REALLY like chocolate cake 😊

1 box chocolate cake and ingredients to make as directed
2 boxes instant Oreo pudding mix
4 cups milk
Crushed up Oreos

Make cake according to directions on back of the box. Bake according to those same directions. Once completely cooked use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over your cake. And set aside.

Mix the Oreo pudding with 4 cups of cold milk until it sets up. Pour over the top of you cake making sure to cover every hole. Then cover with crushed up Oreo cookies. Serve straight away or if you can control the urge to eat it then you can refrigerate it until your ready to eat.

Need a Good Book to Read?

Is it just me or is it getting harder and harder to find a decent book to read these days? I find most adult books are filled with profanity, sex and violence. Not really things I'm wanting to read.

I started a book club here in TX (OK I've really started three book clubs the one here as well as one in Chorley, England and one in Tamworth, England too what can I say? I enjoy book clubs :) and we have really read some amazing books. I thought that I would share a list of some of the books we have read. Then each month I will post the book we are currently reading in case any of you wish to read along.
