Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake Recipe: It was my son’s birthday and I wanted to make him a very special cake. The “funny” part is that he doesn’t eat cake or chocolate, but everyone needs a cake for their birthday!
I found this recipe on OMG Chocolate Dessert blog and it is truly amazing. I adapted the recipe and used a boxed chocolate cake, which turned out great. This cake looks like you bought it from a cake shop, but really it was quite easy to make.
1 Box of chocolate cake mix
Oreo cheesecake filling:
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
8 oz. Cream Cheese (softened)
3/4 cup powdered sugar
12 Oreo Cookies (crushed)
Milk chocolate ganache:
8 oz. milk chocolate (finely chopped)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup whipped cream
Cake: Prepare cake per instructions on box. Use two 9 inch round baking pans. Once baked cool for 10 minutes in the pans. Remove cakes from the pans and place on wire racks upside down (this flattens domed cakes) and cool completely.
Oreo cheesecake filling: In a large mixing bowl mix heavy whipping cream until firm peaks form. In another mixing bowl beat cream cheese and sugar until it’s smooth. Combine cream cheese and whipped cream and stir in crushed Oreo.
Assemble the cake: Spread the cheese cake filling on bottom layer of cooled cake, carefully place the second layer on top of filling. Place assembled cake in the refrigerator to set and cool (30 minutes.)
Ganache: In a sauce pan over low heat melt chopped milk chocolate, remove from the heat and stir in heavy cream. Stir the mixture until it is smooth and then pour over the cake. If the Ganache is too runny, cool it a little until it thickens. Be sure that it is still thin enough to drip down the sides of the cake.
We garnished ours with chocolate chips & whipped cream and sprinkled some crushed Oreos over the top. Your family or guests will not believe you made this cake yourself!
