Chocolate Cookies & Cream Cake

Chocolate Cookies & Cream  Cake

Even with all of the new and exciting Oreo flavors that are released each year, there is something about the classic cookies and cream flavor that can’t be topped. Especially when they top a 3-layer chocolate cake filled with thick and delicious Oreo frosting!

When making this frosting, do NOT make it ahead of time. The Oreo crumbs become very soft in the frosting and will completely mix in if the frosting is left sitting too long (giving you gray frosting instead of flecked cookies & cream).

It is also important when frosting this cake to do a thin crumb coat first. It will keep you from overmixing the frosting and make smoothing the frosting much easier and faster. And you do need to work fairly quickly so that the Oreos don’t dissolve into the frosting base.
