Truly amazing tasting Oreo cake. You do need to keep everything pretty cold while building the cake; this keeps the cake from pressing out the filling and flattening down. I like to place mine in the freezer and get a good chill on it before serving.
1 pkg. Devil's food chocolate cake mix
4 squares Semi-sweet baking chocolate
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) Butter, cut up
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Sugar
2 cups Cool whip whipped topping
12 coarsely crushed Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies
Oven Temp ~ 350°
Baking Time ~ 30 -
Pan Type ~ two 9 inch round pans
Cool cakes in pans for 5 minutes. Invert onto wire racks, remove from pans. Cool layers completely.
Place chocolate and butter in small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool 5 minutes.
Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add the whipped topping and the Oreo cookie crumbs, mix lightly. Place 1 of the cake layers, top-side down, on serving plate; spread cake with the cream cheese mixture. Cover with the remaining cake layer, top-side up. Spoon glaze over top of Oreo Cookie Cake. Let stand until set. Store in refrigerator.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
