Oreo Cake

I know I've been using a lot of Oreo's lately but when they are in your pantry you feel the urge to gobble them up, so I decided to bake with them....again. I also have an abundance of cake mixes in the pantry right now, believe me when they offer buy one get one free I tend to go nuts. So I pulled out a chocolate cake mix, some chocolate chips, oreos and went to work. I think I am one of the few people who like using cake mixes, don't get me wrong a homemade chocolate cake recipe can be as sacred as anything, but sometimes I can't help using the shortcut that a cake mix offers. 

Ingredients for Cake
1 Chocolate Cake Mix, prepared to packages directions
1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips

Prepare cake batter and add chocolate chips before pouring into 2- 8 inch prepared pans. Bake according to directions,  once out of oven let cool for 25 minutes before removing to cooling rack.

Ingredients for Oreo Frosting
2 sticks Unsalted Butter, room temp
1 Pinch Salt
1 TBSP Vanilla, the real stuff!
1 1/2 lbs Powdered Sugar
3/4 TBSP  Cold Milk
25 Oreo cookies, chopped
Duncan Hines Amazing Glaze

Cream the butter and vanilla in a mixer. Begin adding sugar and thoroughly mix before adding more powdered sugar. After all sugar has been added and mixed, begin adding cold milk, one TBSP at a time. Once desired consistency has been reached add chopped Oreo Cookies and mix. Frost your cake. Drizzle glaze over top of cake and pop into fridge to set. Serves 10
