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!
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*
I made Chocolate Oreo Cake and this is quite possibly the worlds most sinful dessert!!! For realz!!!
I found this recipe at Kraftrecipes…
I first saw it on Pinterest, and no I’m not addicted to Pinterest…
Yes, I am!!!
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.)
