Chocolate-Covered Oreo Cookie Cake

Here is the recipe for those that want it. I found it in a Kraft magazine about a year or two ago and just tried it out.

Prep: 20 minutes Total: 1 hour 20 minutes (Maybe after you have made it once or twice, but hey that is what they say!)

1 pkg. (2 layer size) devil's food chocolate cake mix
4 squares of Baker's Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, cut up
1 pkg. (8oz) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping
12 Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, coarsely crushed ( I think I used 16 cookies)

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on package in two 9 inch round baking pans. Cool 5 min.; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.

MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool 5 minutes.

BEAT cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping and crushed cookies. Place 1 cake layer, top-side down, on serving plate. Spread top of layer evenly with cream cheese mixture. Cover with remaining layer, top-side up. Spoon chocolate glaze over top of cake. Let stand until set. Store in the refrigerator.

Makes 16 servings
