What Candies Go on This Poke Cake?

The best part of this poke cake is that you get to use whatever kind of candy you like. You can use chocolate candies or sour candies. The only thing you want to make sure is the candy you use goes well with peanut butter since that is the filling for the cake.

Do Poke Cakes Have to be Refrigerated?

While not all poke cakes will need to be refrigerated, this cake will. It is not because of the filling that this cake needs to be refrigerated, it is because of the Cool Whip. Cool Whip needs to be stored in the refrigerator so this cake should be too.
