I tried a new cake recipe (Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Cake) for my girls’ bible study potluck tonight. It was a huge hit and very easy to make (only seven ingredients). I only made it home with the one piece I promised to save for Alex. (He told me I should bring him two, but I’m just going to cut one in half!)
1pkg. (2-layer size) devil’s food cake mix
4squares BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
12 OREO Cookies, coarsely crushed
1. Heat oven to 350ºF.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
