Chocolate Cookie Cake Recipe

This is one of my husband’s favorite cakes. The cake is moist & yummy, the whipped cream cheese frosting is light and delicious, it looks pretty, and it is all easy to make!

Chocolate Cookie Cake

from Taste of Home: Busy Family Cookbook

  • 1 pkg white cake mix
  • 16 cream-filled sandwich cookies, coarsely crushed Nabisco Coupons
  • 1 pkg cream cheese (3 oz), softened Cream Cheese Coupons
  • 2 Tbsp milk Milk Coupons
  • 2 c heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 c confectioners’ sugar
  • additional cookies for garnish
Prepare cake batter according to pkg directions (or make it a little better with the trick below). Stir in the crushed cookies. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 10-in fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 for 33-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack to cool completely.
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Beat in cream until mixture begins to thicken. Add confectioners’ sugar; beat until stiff peaks begin to form. Frost the cake. Garnish with cookies. Refrigerate leftovers.

Cake Mix Trick:

This will improve your cake mix. I found this trick in the comments of a post on Tidy Mom, from a pastry chef named Shelly. (Thanks!)
Look at the directions on the cake mix box…

  • add one more egg (or add two additional if you want it to be really rich)
  • double the oil amount, but use melted butter instead of oil
  • use milk instead of water

 

See the Boston Cream Pie Recipe from a cake mix that I posted about last month. It is from the same cookbook and I used the same cake mix trick too.
