Do you know what today is? It’s National Oreo Cookie Day. And it just so happens that I stumbled upon these magical, morsels of deliciousness. Dramatic? Ok, sure. But who doesn’t love Peeps? Those adorably squishy, pastel critters are some of my favorite special holiday treats.
What better way to enjoy National Oreo Cookie Day than with a Springtime Oreo Peeps Poke Cake
The weather has been in the sixties this past week and I have Spring fever. BIG TIME! I knew as soon as I saw these limited edition Oreos that I needed to make this cake. I had made regular Oreo poke cakes before. But as soon as I saw them I envisioned switching up the chocolate cake for a colorful vanilla cake with a sweetened whipped cream topping.
This a super easy recipe. It’s also cute. Pink like a bunny Peep. This is going on the Easter menu for sure. At least that’s what the gang has told me.
