Oreo Cake

 We don't love cake at our house.  This shouldn't be called cake.  We do LOVE ganache at our house.  So anything with ganache on top tastes better.  Well, we haven't tried in on chicken yet.  I learned a few tricks from my friend Patty on how to make cake taste better.  Whenever she is using a cake mix she always adds a small box of pudding(same flavoras cake mix), this makes the cake alot more moist.  You just dump the dry pudding mix in with the cake mix.  This recipe came from The Cookin Mamas Blog.  We did make a few changes, but nothing major. 

 Oreo Madness
by: The Cookin Mamas

2-layer size devil's food chocolate cake mix ( I used choc. Fudge. )
1 small box instant chocolate Pudding
4 squares semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, cut up
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups thawed cool whip
12 Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, coarsely crushed

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed (add the dry pudding to cake mix) 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 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool 5 min.

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 one cake layer, top-side down, on serving plate. Spread top of layer evenly with cream cheese mixture. Cover with remaining cake layer, top-side up. Spoon chocolate glaze over top of cake. Let stand until set. Store in refrigerator.

* The Chocolate you cover this cake with is like a ganache.  Check out the other post of different Ganache recipes.  Also, it's fun to toss in a handful of  mini chocolate chips to the cakes to add something fun.
