This Chocolate Caramel Poke Cake tastes like your wildest dreams just came true! Everything you love in a dessert-chocolate, caramel, whipped cream, and toffee bits in one incredible dessert that’ll have everyone begging for more! You’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven!
This cake is one of those confections that has it all! It really “takes the cake”, you might say. Haha!
It just doesn’t get any better in the dessert world! The best tall homemade chocolate cake base, poked and filled with an incredible caramel sauce, sprinkled with toffee bits, then spread with oodles of homemade whipped cream! And don’t forget the chocolate and caramel drizzle on top! Then it’s finished with additional toffee bits, because you can just never have too much. 🙂
Since all content on this blog is G rated for families, I opted not to call this cake by its original title, you probably know the one (BTS…Better than You-Know-What). So then I needed to come up with a new and exciting name for it. And rather than terming it something boring like Better than Anything Cake or Chocolate Caramel Poke Cake, which it very much is, my thoughts were stuck on a silly quote from Napoleon Dynamite. Have you seen it?
My husband and I were watching it one night while on our kid-free trip to Yellowstone a few weeks back. It was on TV and we hadn’t seen it in ages. I’d forgotten how funny it is! Totally dumb yet so hilarious!
One of our favorite quotes from the movie is when Pedro is running for class president and is giving his speech in front of the entire school and says, “If you vote for me, all of your wildest dreams will come true,” (insert accent) in a very monotone voice.
We laughed so hard on that part and we were quoting it as we were ziplining, rafting, hiking and biking throughout the remainder of the week.
I don’t know what your wildest dreams might be (I’ve always wanted to fly), but this cake is better than them! 🙂
Don’t you want to just start sinking a fork right into it?
So, whether you’re a Napoleon Dynamite fan or not, you have to make this cake! It will make all of your wildest dreams come true! 🙂
