I know I just came back from vacation, but I am seriously dying for this 3-day weekend approaching. Mostly because I could really just use some time to relax and hang at home. Sure, this will be a dessert filled weekend, but sleeping in, is a must. Although, if any of my blogging friends want to go back to Miami, I am also totally on board!
I can’t wait to tell you about this Cookie and Cream Cookie Cake. One of the reasons I am so obsessed with this cake is because it uses a pudding mix in place of some of the flour. This helps keep this cake UBER soft. It’s pretty much the best thing to happen to cookie cakes since sprinkles. Knowing that there are so many flavor combinations, I am kind of dying to make more cookie cakes.
I wanted to go all cookies and cream out on this cake. So I layered the bottom with Oreos. It will only work if you line the bottom with parchment paper, large enough that it actually hangs over the edges of the spring form pan once it is locked into place. Otherwise your Oreos will be left on the bottom of the pan.
The top of this cake is a party in and of itself. It has a layer of cookies and cream ganache, which is melted Hershey’s chocolate candy. Then it is dotted with a dark chocolate frosting, covered in more Oreos and smothered in chocolate ganache.
My BFF Lindsay made a similar cake awhile back, and I have been waiting to post mine. You see the thing with us is that great minds think alike, especially when it comes to sugar! Plus, Lindsey pretty much kills it with the cookie cakes. There is something nostalgic about Oreos in any way shape or form. So when you combine Oreos with chocolate chip cookies, magic just happens.Print
