Chocolate Oreo-Cream Birthday Cake

My two youngest kiddos have birthdays that are 4 days apart.

Now, I could be one of those cool moms who have separate parties for each child… Well, we decided to do one party, so I guess I’m not! :D

BUT, I did do separate, little personal cakes for each child, so AT LEAST THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO SHARE THEIR CAKE, AS I DID AS A CHILD! Oh! Sorry.  Was I yelling? No, I’m not bitter… *ahem* :D

I made Chocolate Oreo Cake and this is quite possibly the worlds most sinful dessert!!! For realz!!!

I found this recipe at Kraftrecipes

Okay…

I first saw it on Pinterest, and no I’m not addicted to Pinterest…

Okay…

Yes, I am!!! :D

I also made a cake for the rest of us to share…

To. die. for!!!

Chocolate Oreo Birthday Cake 

(adapted from Kraftrecipes)

1pkg. (2-layer size) devil’s food cake mix
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
½ cup milk or whipping cream
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
½ 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 milk or whipping cream in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until chocolate 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 and spread with cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread top with chocolate glaze; let stand 10 min. or until firm. Keep refrigerated.

(I made the cakes a couple of days ahead of time. This allowed the cream to set up in the middle and gave the cookies a chance to get soft. For the kids personal cakes, I omitted the chocolate topping and just did canned icing.)

  1. That choc cake looks wonderful! Maybe I can talk my 19 yr old son into that. He always wants Dirt Cake and I get so tired of making that every year! Happy Mother’s Day to you!

  4. The cake looks delicious! My birthday is this Sat. and I’m thinking of making that for myself–and family too, of course. No Cool Whip here in MX, but we do have Oreos, do you think substituting Dream Whip would work? Would it get soggy if I make it a day or two ahead like you suggest? Thanks.

    • Happy B-day Denise!!! I would think Dream Whip would be okay to use. (I’m only guessing here, ’cause I’ve never actually made it with whipped cream.) After you make it and put it in the frig, the cream cheese mixture will firm up a little and help keep the whipped cream from soaking into the cake (too much… maybe :D ). I say go for it anyway, even if it does get a little soggy! It will still taste good! Enjoy your birthday! :D

      • The cake was very good. The Dream Whip did fine and firmed up well. I made it on Thurs., two days in advance, and kept it covered. The only thing I would change for next time, and this is my personal preference, is not put the chocolate on top. I would make a cream cheese frosting. I shared my cake with others and they all said it was delicious! Definitely a keeper and will make it again. Thank you, I had a great birthday!

  7. this is perfect timing for my soon to be 17 yo daughter. She would love this cake. And will make her some cake pops to hand out to her friends at school as well.

  8. Love the cake and am anxious to try…just found your site.
    Quesion – did you make a double recipe with one being a 9″ regular size and then another batch for 2 smaller cakes?

    • Lexy, Yes, I made two batches of cake mix. One for the 9″ round cake (using 2-9″ pans), and the other one I split up between two 6″ cake pans. After I baked the 6″ cakes, I cut each of them horizontally so I could add a layer of icing in the middle. Thanks for stopping by! :D

  10. They don’t look at all concerned about sharing their birthday celebration. I’m a twin and was richly blessed to have my closest somebody to share birthdays with :)

  11. Omg I just made this today… Simply DIVINE!! My family loved it!! The only thing is it is very rich… Several family members did not enjoy the glaze topping so might experiment with a “lighter” topping…. Still delicious!!
