I made these for New Year's up north at my in-laws' cabin. They were quite tasty, although the top layer was overly sweet for my liking. My version of this Cookies and Cups recipe below should alter these more to my taste. Definitely worth a repeat, though.
I actually bought a cake mix for this, and it was worth it.
1 box chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup butter, melted and divided
2 eggs, divided
8 oz. cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. Cocoa powder
8 oz. Cool Whip
12 Double Stuf Oreos, chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray, and set aside.
In bowl, stir together cake mix, 1/2 cup melted butter and 1 egg until smooth. Press mixture into the bottom of prepared pan.
Beat cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar
together until smooth. Remove half the mixture from the bowl, and
reserve for later. In the remaining cream cheese mixture,
add cocoa powder, 1/4 cup melted butter and remaining egg. Beat until
Spread this mixture over top the cake layer. Bake for 30 minutes until just set. Allow to cool completely.
Stir half your chopped Oreos into the
remaining cream cheese mixture. Then fold in Cool Whip until
smooth. Spread this over your cooled base. Sprinkle with remaining chopped Oreos. Chill for at least an hour. Makes 12 (or more) servings.
