Red Velvet Poke Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

The cake is fast, easy, and it’s a poke cake so it’s automatically super soft and moist. After baking poke holes in the cake and drizzle in sweetened condensed milk. The tangy cream cheese frosting perfectly complements the red velvet flavor as do the mini chocolate chips and they add a perfect amount of texture to this otherwise soft, decadent, and very easy cake. You can make scratch cream cheese frosting or to save time use storebought cream cheese frosting in a tub.


one 16.25-ounce box red velvet cake mix
one 14-ounce can sweetend condensed milk
one-and-a-half to two 14-ounce tubs whipped cream cheese frosting OR make scratch frosting using the ingredients below
8 ounces brick-style cream cheese, softened (lite okay)
1/4 cup (half of 1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
about 2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips




Stay Fancy! ;)
