Yikes - this time it was different - I have made this recipe many times over with fabulous results - this last time I used generic oreo cookies and it significantly didn't taste as good. I didn't tell my family and they noticed something wasn't quite the same right off the bat (they said it was OK but not as good). Advice: use only Oreos or Hydrox/Sunshine cookies. Read More

This cake had no flavor. I was expecting oreo cookie heaven and I ended up with flavorless cake. Since the cake is oreo cookie on top I couldn't frost it so it was just dry and boring. It received so many great reviews and I bake all the time. I have no idea what went wrong. Read More

Delightful! As Hubs put it a real collage of flavors and textures what with the moist cake crunchy Oreos creamy chocolate chips and sweet gooey glaze. I used a pound cake mix as I believe it tastes more homemade and has less of that artificial flavor yellow cake mixes have (a French Vanilla cake mix would have been a fine choice too). I reserved some of the Oreos for the top leaving them in bigger chunks. It's a pretty cake striking with it's layering and sharp black and white colors interesting and really very good. Read More

This is WONDERFUL!! A new favorite at our house!! I used a Butter Recipe Chocolate Cake (the ONLY butter recipe cake mix I could find) and rather than making their glaze I just served it with vanilla ice-cream with chocolate syrup on BOTH! WOW!! YUUUUMMMMMYYYYY!! (I used it for my son's 4th birthday party with a construction theme and it was GREAT because it looks like dirt on top and we used construction truck candles on top! PERFECT!) I'm not a chocaholic but I sure like this one! Read More

Oreos are one of my favorite foods and this cake is another one of the amazing things that you can do with them! I used a chocolate butter cake mix and extra semi-sweet chocolate chips. The cake was extremely moist and so very rich. I made the cake for a party and it was complemented all night. Everyone begs me for this recipe. Read More

Great! It disappeared fast. The only change I made was I put ALL of the cookie crumbs into the middle and then frosted the cake with chocolate frosting. Try it also with chocolate cake mix. Read More

At the advice of some other reviewers I used chocolate butter recipe cake mix (Betty Crocker) and "slipped" and put in an extra hand-full of chocolate chips. I used a majority of the cookie crumb mixture in the middle of the cake and the rest functioned as more of a garnishment on the top. I also made a splash of extra glaze. The cake came out awesome but not to excessive fanfare due to it being rather rich after a big meal. It tastes JUST LIKE the Krispy Kreme devil's food doughnuts and therefore I would suggest this to go well with coffee. When I make it again I will definitely make more glaze though. (Hint: Poke holes with the handle of a fork in the cake before pouring the glaze... awesome!) Great easy recipe. Read More

This recipe is fabulous as cupcakes also. Just cut the oreo crumble mixture in half and only put in the middle layer not on the top. I used vanilla cake mix (DH not available in all stores but I found it at Safeway) added an extra tsp of vanilla and it was perfect! I also used mini chocolate chips and I thought it worked well.
