Chocolate Oreo Cream Cake

My oldest son turned 8 last week. His favorite thing in the world is Oreo cookies so he wanted an Oreo cake for his birthday. I actually made this cake years ago when I saw it in a Kraft Food and Family magazine. It kind of looks like an Oreo cookie with the cream filling. But then I found an updated version of the same cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. Chocolate frosting makes everything a little better, right? Either way it's delicious but I always prefer more chocolate!

Chocolate Oreo Cream Cake
1 pkg chocolate cake mix, baked in two 9" round pans, cooled and removed from pans

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups cool whip, thawed
12 oreo cookies, coarsely chopped

1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
6 Tbsp butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
6 Tbsp milk

Prepare filling by beating together cream cheese and sugar with a hand mixer. Fold in the cool whip. Then fold in the Oreos.

Prepare frosting by whisking together cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Add butter, vanilla, and milk. Mix with a hand mixer until smooth. Add more milk to reach desired consistency.

Place one layer of the cake on a serving platter or cake platter. Top with the filling and spread evenly. Place remaining cake on top. Frost the top and sides with the chocolate frosting.
