Oreo Cookie Cake

Hmmm, how can I describe this cake? It combines the addictive chocolatey crunch of Oreos with the warm, delicate crumb of a butter cake, and tops it off with a rich, fluffy, crunchy frosting that tastes like you're eating quadruple-stuffed oreos. No, don't wait until the cake is completely cooled to frost it; go ahead and slather it while it's still warm, so you can get some goo factor going.

1 package Oreos
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 box butter cake mix
Put all the cookies into a large ziplock bag, seal, and beat with a rolling pin until all cookies are crumbly(you can also just chop them if you don't need to let out any aggression); set aside 1 cup of crumbs. In bowl, combine bag of cookie crumbs, chocolate chips, flour and butter; set aside. Make cake mix per directions. Pour half of batter in greased cake pan. Sprinkle half of cookie mix over. Pour rest of cake batter over cookies. Sprinkle the rest of the mix on top. Bake at 350 degrees about 40 minutes(although mine cooked faster, about 30-35 min), or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

1 stick of butter, soft
1 bag powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup reserved Oreo crumbs
splash of milk

Cream butter in mixer. Add 3/4 bag of powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Add splashes of milk, mixing well between each addition, to achieve desired consistency. Add oreos and thoroughly combine.


  1. No. You did NOT just give me permission to make this cake!

    Oreo crumbs AND chocolate chips? I think I might die.

  2. Ok, So I just made this cake today and it is SO YUMMY!! How can you go wrong with a cake loaded with butter and cookies? I suggest not taking a huge slice to start with cause it's so rich with the frosting and chocolate chips. It's heavenly with a cold glass of milk. What could be better?!
