S'mores Poke Cake

In celebration of my oldest son's 6th birthday I wanted to make him a S'mores poke cake. I've never made this recipe before but it seemed to turn out ok even though I couldn't eat it. (Not gluten free)
Ingredients
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix + the ingredients on the back of the box.
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup hot fudge ice cream topping
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1/2 cup graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 container (8 ounces) Cool Whip
  • 3.4 cup mini chocolate chips (optional topping)
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows (optional topping)
  • 1/2 cup graham crackers, crushed (optional topping)
  • Instructions
    1. Prepare the cake according to the directions on the box.
    2. Once the cake is completely cooled, use a wooden spoon to poke holes evenly throughout the cake, making about 25-30 holes.
    3. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the cake, trying to fill up the holes.
    4. Combine the hot fudge topping, the marshmallow fluff, and the crushed graham crackers in a medium sized bowl. Microwave the combined toppings for 15 seconds or until melted together and warm.
    5. Spread the marshmallow fluff and hot fudge topping on top of the cake, trying to get some in the holes. Then spread the Cool Whip on top.
    6. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. When ready to serve if desired, sprinkle the mini chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and crushed graham crackers on top. This makes about 12 large pieces.

This is what it looked like before the toppings went on.

What I'm reading this week and the #WeeklyMenu Week #254

Welcome back to Monday. We had a wonderful first full week of summer break. The boys and I ran into a cool event at our local library. It was a park and play... or something like that. The local fire department and police force were out with all their cool vehicles. The boys got to sit in them and talk to the police and fire fighters. Their favorite part was trying to find who had the cool stickers. 


Saturday, my husband and I took a mini vacation and went to a friends wedding in Scappoose, OR. There isn't much there, but cow poop and air planes. We did find a llama and it made some weird noises. The weather was strange. Rain, sun, rain, sun. Come on, Oregon. Pick one.
My husband and I like to play a game. If we were to open a shop in this little town, what would it be called. I came up with the "Scap and Poose." A hole in the wall bar. "You want to go down to the Scap and Poose and get a beer?"

The Girl With All the Gifts | Movie Review

Title: The Girl with all the Gifts
Genre: Dystopian

Release Date: January 26th, 2017 Rating: 6.7/10 IMDB Cast: Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton
Summary from IMDB: A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie.
IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…
