Mint Oreo Cake Recipe

After I so many posts about Oreo Such as Oreo Cookies and Cream or Oreo balls.

I decided That I had enough Oreo recipes and I stop with that kind of recipes...

Just Kidding, Oreo is my favorite Cookie so there is no way I 'll stop with those kind of recipes

So let's start,

First, some photos that you'll know what I talikng about:

Ok the recipe is start!!!


5 oz. chopped semi-sweet or dark chocolate (about 3/4 cups chocolate chips)
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
1 stick butter
3 eggs
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

For Assembly:

Minty cream cheese frosting (recipe below)
1 package of mint Oreos
1 batch of cake balls (optional, Oreo balls)

Note: if you are doing the cake balls, you'll want to do at least another half batch. Also note: you can also use a box mix for the cake if you want to be lame.

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease two 9 inch cake pans and line with parchment paper. In a microwavable bowl or double broiler, combine the sour cream, butter, and chocolate. If using microwave turn down the power a little and stir every 45 seconds or so. Heat and stir just until chocolate is completely melted. Beat together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla and add to the chocolate mixture, mixing well. Sift in the flour, cocoa, soda, salt, and powder and fold together until well combined and no lumps remain. Divide the batter between pans and bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

Once completely cool, crush about one row of the Oreos and mix with 1 cup of the frosting. I don't crush the Oreos too much, I just break them up with my hands because I like big chunks of Oreo, but it's up to you. Spread that mixture on top of one layer of the cake and place the other layer on top. Finish frosting the cake and then top with cake balls and line the edge with Oreos. I twisted them in half and alternated between frosting side up and cookie side up.

Minty Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 8 oz. package of slightly softened cream cheese
2 cups (1 lb) slightly softened butter 
2 teaspoons mint extract
About 3 drops of green food coloring
2 1/2 to 4 cups powdered sugar

Beat the cream cheese and butter on high speed for at least five minutes. Add the powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time. Start with just 2 1/2 cups and then throw it in the freezer until firm and beat again for at least 5 minutes until fluffy. If you think it's still to thin you can add more powdered sugar, but the less the better. If you are using it to make cake balls though, you'll probably want to add more powdered sugar. Add the food coloring and mint extract and beat until smooth.
