Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Cake

Today is my son Zach’s 24th birthday!  And he requested this cake which I have made for him before on previous birthdays.  It is a Kraft recipe and is pretty quick and easy to make and looks pretty impressive and is really tasty!

cake:

1 Devil’s food cake mix + ingredients listed on box to make cake

glaze:

4 squares semi sweet baking chocolate

1/4 cup butter, cut up

filling:

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar

2 cups thawed Cool Whip (a regular size tub of Cool Whip is about 3 cups, I just add it all in!)

12 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped

1  For the cake, heat oven to 350.  Prepare and bake cake as directed on package in 2 (9″) round cake pans.  Cool in pan 5 minutes.  Invert onto wire rack.  Cool completely.

2  For the glaze, melt the chocolate in microwave on high 1 – 2 minutes or until chocolate is melted, stirring after 30 seconds.  Blend in butter.  Set aside to slightly thicken, about 5 minutes.

3  For the filling, beat cream cheese and sugar until well blended.  Gently stir in Cool Whip and cookies.  Place 1 cake on serving plate, top side down.  Spread evenly with cream cheese mixture.  Place second cake on top, top side up.  Spoon glaze to cover top of cake only.  (I put some more crushed Oreos on the top in the center for decoration.)
