This is a recipe that I have worked with for a couple of months to get it as I wanted it. I must say - - it was fun and yummy "getting" it right!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is such a decadent chocolate cake. Sour cream makes it very moist. The cream cheese Oreo filling is so delicious, make sure not to taste too much of it so there's some for the cake (it's that good). Drizzling fudge over the cake takes this over the top. If you're worried about the whipped cream topping melting from the heat of the warmed fudge before you are ready to serve this, a squeezable chocolate sauce is a great substitute. This chocolate Oreo cake looks very impressive when served and sliced but is super easy to make.
