Chocolate Covered Giant Oreo Cookie Cake

Oreo's...either you love them OR... well something is wrong with you if you don't love them! HA

Seriously, we love Oreo's and anything with Oreo's. I have made probably a dozen different decadent desserts using this fabulous cookie over the last 2 years. I thought it was time to share a few.

Since making the first Oreo item, I have switched to using my own cake mix but the original recipes were made using a box mix. You can do either, it is entirely up to you.

My husband is an Oreo lover, so anytime I make a dessert using them, he is a happy man.

Chocolate Covered Giant Oreo Cookie Cake

1 box Ducan Hines Swiss Chocolate Cake mix
4 oz semi sweet baking chocolate
1/4 cup butter, cut up
1 pkg cream cheese, softened, 8 oz
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups cool whip, thawed
12 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped
4 Oreo cookies coarsely crushed

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare and bake the cake mix as directed on the box using 2...9 inch round pans. Cool 5 minutes and remove from pans to cool completely on wire racks.

Melt chocolate and butter in a small pan. Stir until smooth and cool for 5 minutes.

Beat cream cheese and sugar in a bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. GENTLY stir in cool whip and 12 cookies.

Place 1 cake layer top side down, spread cream cheese mix and cover with 2nd cake top side up.
Spoon chocolate glaze over the top of the cake and top with the remaining 4 Oreo.

Let stand until set and store in fridge.

ENJOY!
