Poke cakes are great for taking to picnics and such during the warm months. They travel well, they keep well and the flavor combos are endless. Playing with different flavors is always so much fun.

This Chocolate Mint Poke Cake is sure to please! With a few short steps you can take a boxed cake mix and make it really, really good!

Put this Chocolate Mint Poke in front of your family/friends and I guarantee you they will love it!

The chocolate mint pudding you see poking out is absolutely delicious with just the right amount of chocolate and mint flavor in each bite!

I like to use 1 cup of coffee creamer (girl scout thin mints flavor) and 1 cup of milk. But if you don’t want to use coffee creamer you can always add a little mint extract your milk instead.

St. Patrick’s Day is just a few days away so I wanted to give you guys a simple yet tasty dessert you can make for the occasion, if you want to. It seems like there are a lot of people out there who really go all out for St. Patrick’s Day. So here you go!

Why is this Lucky Mint Chocolate Pie? Because once people taste it you will be lucky to get a piece! People of all ages love this pie!

The flavors and ingredients are so simple and yet so incredibly scrumptious together you will be amazed.

So here you have my Lucky Mint Chocolate Chip Pie that is wonderful for any occasion! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Love that the pie has a wonderful and delicious chocolate base. You can keep it in the freezer (the way I like it), or you can keep it in the fridge. Don’t worry, this pie does not freeze rock hard because it has a chocolate cream base.

In case you’re not sure, the chopped cookies are Girl Scout Thin Mints. Sorry I don’t have a box for you. I was lucky to get my hands on any, the boys went through them so fast!!

If you can’t find these marshmallows, no big deal. Regular marshmallows will work just fine. These marshmallows are fun when they’re half price, like mine were.

Seriously they have a faint chocolate mint flavor so you’re not really missing out on anything. You will still be getting the mint chocolate flavor from the Thin Mint Cookies and the Andes crème de menthe baking pieces.

There’s a lot of flexibility with this pie! It makes things SO easy! You don’t need to drag a fork through the whip cream, unless you want to. I did it strictly to give the appearance of texture. Either way the pie is going to be delicious. :)

Then of course you finish off the pie with chopped Thin Mint cookies (or Cool Mint Oreos) and the rest of the chopped Andes mint baking chips. The combination of the two is minty and chocolaty and so very WONDERFUL without being too much!

Chocolate and mint how can you go wrong?

These truffles are a great treat during the colder months because I think they just plain old taste better when it’s cold out.

Not only that, have you ever watched a child hold a chocolate anything during the warmer months? Um yeah, not a pretty sight. It’s kind of a meltdown in slow motion as they get frustrated and the chocolate goes everywhere! :)
