My niece turned 12 last week – for weeks I asked her what kind of cake she wanted and she couldn’t give me an answer. Well, she gave me one answer, but it was a cake that had about 5000 steps and took 4 days to make. Nina, I love you, but…
So, Aunt Miss needed to make a quick decision. And the family said it was one of the best cakes ever. In the top 5. I LOVE when something so easy gets rave reviews. And wait until you see how easy it is to make this!
Chocolate Covered Oreo Cake
adapted from Allrecipes
your favorite dark chocolate cake recipe (I used a box mix…shhhh)
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups thawed frozen whipped topping
18 Oreo cookies, chopped
10 Oreo cookies, chopped
Bake cake in two 9 inch round pans. Let cool completely.
Beat sugar and cream cheese until combined. Add whipped topping and 18 Oreos, and mix. Set aside. Melt chocolate and butter together in microwave to form a thin ganache.
Place one cake layer on serving plate. Add cream cheese mixture evenly, and place second cake layer on top. Top with ganache and add 10 Oreos before ganache hardens. Let stand 10 minutes then refrigerate. Keep refrigerated until serving.
