Hokey Pokey Cake

1 (16.5 ounce) box chocolate cake mix
1 (5.1 ounce, 6-1/2 cup servings) box vanilla instant pudding mix
1 (8 ounce) container whipped topping
1/2 cup chopped nuts or candy pieces

Prepare cake according to package directions.

Cool cake. Using the end of a wooden spoon, poke holes in the cake.  

Prepare pudding according to package directions.  Pour over cake. 

Cover, refrigerate until time to serve.  

Spread whipped topping over cake.  Sprinkle candy or nuts over top. 

My mom used to make this cake when I was a kid.  It was always a big hit back then and it still is today.  Take this yummy cake to a potluck and you are sure to receive lots of complements. 

My new cookbook will soon be available at schools, businesses, hospitals, and book fairs in cities across the United States.  Be sure to pick up a copy or two, when you see them.  They make great gifts!
