Chocolate-Peppermint Poke Cake
I found it difficult to spread the pudding and get it into the holes. I wonder if we poured the pudding as soon as it is mixed and not let it set up if it would work better. I will try that next time. I didn't like that the pudding and frosting mixed together. The cake was not pretty but it was moist and very tasty. I eliminated the candy on the top and felt it was minty enough. I had to use sugar free white chocolate pudding also since I couldn't find the regular. I would make it again and might even try different variations of extract, pudding and cake flavors.

Baked these last night. 25 minutes and they were a little darker than I like but still good. I only used half of the cinnamon (husband get indigestion with too much) and I felt they needed more flavor but they were good. will make again and definitely take to pot lucks. I too like that all ingredients are in my pantry so no need to plan ahead.
