Reese’s Cup Poke Cake
It’s BTS cake revisted in Reese’s form! Chocolate cake, topped with PB Chocolate ganache, smothered in PB whipped cream, and topped with Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups…
Last fall, I posted a recipe for Pumpkin Poke Cake, and I noticed that soon after the number of people viewing my site on a daily basis more than doubled.So I decided to do an experiment to find out if posting a recipe for a Christmas Peppermint Poke Cake would have the same effect. It did! Since then, I’ve also posted a Carrot Cake Poke Cake for Easter.
The conclusion? YOU GUYS LOVE POKE CAKES! And, uh… I think I can take a hint here. I mean, it’s a hard job, but somebody’s gotta do it right?
So this year, expect a LOT more poke cakes on Something Swanky! I’m on a quest to create the most creative and tasty Poke Cakes on the planet! If you have a Poke Cake request, send it my way! After all, your poke cake wish is (now, apparently) my command :).
I thought a Reese’s Poke Cake was a pretty great way to kick off my new resolve to increase the Poke Cake population in the world. Every bit of traffic and trends analyzing I’ve done on my blog and social media sites points to PB and Chocolate as the universal favorite flavor pairing and Reese’s as the favorite brand.
…and, apparently, everyone likes holiday shaped Reese’s best. Just sayin’. And if you were wondering– YES, this is how I spend my free time: trying to find out how you like your Reese’s cups. It’s a very serious business we food bloggers are in…
So what do you think? Is peanut butter and chocolate YOUR favorite flavor combo?
