Better than Anything Oreo Cake

It must be holiday season or something because I sure am baking a lot :) At least it feels that way to me!

I have decided that Poke Cakes are my new favorite way to do cakes. Not only are they super easy, but each bite is gooey and delicious! When you need a dessert to impress your crowd but that takes very little effort, this is the way to go. Every time I put one of these “Better than Anything” cakes on the table, they disappear within minutes!

This particular “Better than Anything” cake holds a special place in my heart. ¬†Granted, the Original “Better than Anything” Cake still is the best in my opinion, but this one would have to place a close second. For all you chocolate-lovers out there, this is the cake for you! My mom (the biggest chocolate fanatic I know) says this is by far her favorite. ¬†You be the judge and let me know :)
