Calling all Oreo cookie lovers! This Oreo cookies and cream chocolate cake is exactly what you need right now! Dark chocolate cake is frosted with white buttercream frosting with real Oreo cookie crumbs, YUM! You can taste the Oreos in every bite!
This amazing chocolate cookies and cream Oreo cake consists of a one layer chocolate cake frosted with Oreo buttercream frosting. If you are a typical one-bowl cake maker, you’ll absolutely love this recipe! This chocolate cake is made by mixing the ingredients in one bowl and baking! No fancy layers here – just a good ol’ one-bowl chocolate cake!
The Oreo frosting is simply my basic vanilla buttercream frosting mixed with the Oreo cookie crumbs. To make the Oreo cookie crumbs, just put a pack of Oreos in a food processor and pulse until they turn into crumbs. Don’t eat all the Oreos in the process :) Buttercream frosting + Oreo crumbs = cookies and cream!
If you are totally obsessed with Oreos, you can even throw in some Oreo crumbs in the chocolate cake batter. I normally just put in the Oreo crumbs in the frosting, but you can add them to both the frosting and the cake! You can also sprinkle the top and the sides of the cake with even more Oreo crumbs – it’s never “too much of a good thing” when it comes to Oreos! For cookie lovers, I also have an awesome easy cookie cake recipe – you’ll have to make that one next!
You can also add a layer of whole Oreos on top of the cake, or stick them vertically into the cake so the Oreos are standing. Decorate this yummy Oreo cookies and cream cake however you want – you can be as creative as you’d like!
