After my older daughter’s success last week with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake, my younger daughter chose Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Cake for her baking time with Mom this week. Yes, we need a five-mile family bike ride every night after eating dessert! At least it’s usually just a weekend treat, so we can be a little more disciplined during the week to keep our waistlines in check!
This was another hit – a new recipe that turned out to be so tasty! I think this would be fabulous as a birthday cake. I didn’t garnish it, but you could certainly use additional Oreo cookies or whipped topping to up the “fancy factor.”
Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Cake
1 pkg (2-layer size) devil’s food chocolate cake mix
3 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
3 tbsp butter, cut up
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup thawed whipped topping
8 Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies, coarsely crushed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on package in two 9-inch round cake pans. Cool in pan ten minutes. Invert onto wire rack; cool completely.
Melt chocolate in small microwaveable bowl on high one to two minutes or until chocolate is melted, stirring after 30 seconds. Blend in butter. Set aside to thicken slightly, about five minutes.
Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping and crushed cookies. Place one of the cake layers on serving plate, top-side down. Spread top of cake layer evenly with entire cream cheese mixture. Place remaining cake layer on top, top-side up. Spoon chocolate glaze to cover top of cake only.
