Chocolate-Covered OREO Cookie Cake


Oh this is really yummy! I made this on my son's 2nd birthday party and they loved it! The cream cheese here can't even be tasted and the taste of whipped cream and oreo cookies? Delicious! I will be making it again and would love to have all my friends try it. It is so easy to make and it made me easier to prepare it because I used ready-made chocolate fudge frosting. I have semi-chocolate squares but I didn't use it. I tried it before and it was good. The problem is that I didn't have time to make the frosting, instead I just bought a can from the store. It was still good that it will satisfy your sweet tooth. I tried to use non or low fat, less or sugar-free ingredients. You better try making it, I am sure, everyone will love it and you will be praised! I got the recipe from dessert.com. Here it is!

1 pkg. (2-layer size) devil's food cake mix
4 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1/4 cup butter
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
12 OREO Cookies, coarsely crushed


HEAT oven to 350ºF.

PREPARE cake batter and bake in 2 (9-inch) round pans as directed on package. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Invert onto wire racks; gently remove pans. Cool cakes completely.

MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool 5 min. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gently stir in COOL WHIP and crushed cookies.

PLACE 1 cake layer on plate, spread with cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread top with chocolate glaze; let stand 10 min. or until firm. Keep refrigerated.
