Reese’s Poke Cake is a super easy dessert recipe for the peanut butter cup lovers out there. The ultimate combination comes together in this chocolate peanut butter poke cake that is perfect to bring to potlucks and parties. This is guaranteed to be one of the best poke cake recipes you’ve ever tries. I’ve even got some suggestion for how you might make a gluten free poke cake.

It starts with a chocolate cake that is slathered with vanilla pudding that’s been mixed with peanut butter. Melted chocolate frosting is poured over the top, and it’s covered with a fluffy blend of whipped topping and more peanut butter. And of course no Reese’s Poke Cake is complete without a generous sprinkle of chopped peanut butter cups. It’s pure heaven!
