Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Poke Cake

This decadent cake is inspired by my Better than Sex Cake recipe and my love of peppermint. This chocolate lovers cake is delectable!

Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Poke Cake
·1 recipe for Black Bean Chocolate Cake (Flourless)
·1 recipe for Homemade Chocolate Pudding
·¼ cup skim milk
·3 crushed candy canes, optional

Prepare Black Bean Chocolate Cake (Flourless) according to recipe. Once cake is cool, poke 15-20 holes in the cake with a wooden spoon.

Prepare Homemade Chocolate Pudding according to recipe, using 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in place of the white chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips.

In a small bowl, thin out half of the prepared Chocolate Pudding with milk. Pour mixture over the top of the cake, allowing the thinned out pudding to seep into the holes in the cake.

Frost cake with remaining pudding and garnish with crushed candy canes.
