This is probably the best cake I have had that came from a box. It is fulfilling on every level. I could go on and on about it...but give it a try for yourself....TODAY! I would like to add it can be a pain to cut once the chocolate on top hardens from being refrigerated. Other than that, this cake is perfect.
1 box mix (2-layer size) devil's food chocolate cake mix
4 squares semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups thawed 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 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. Cool 5 min.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gently stir in whipped topping 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.
