Chocolate Covered

Oreo Cookie


1 pkg. (2-layer size) devil's food chocolate cake mix
4 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 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 for 10 mins
Invert cakes onto wire racks; gently remove pans.
Cool cakes completely.
MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted then cool for 5 min.
MEANWHILE, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gently stir in COOL WHIP and crushed cookies. Stack cake layers on plate, spreading cream cheese mixture between layers. Spread top with chocolate glaze; let stand until firm. Keep refrigerated.

To crush the cookies put them in a freezer ziploc bag and then squeeze the bag or use your rolling pin... I like to use the Cream Cheese that is a bar not the soft stuff in the container ..It just seems to stay firmer .
Well time to have a cup of tea with some nice home made chocolate cookies to go along with the tea.. Grumpy is making tea as I am finishing off the blog for today.
