How To Make dark chocolate oreo fudge cake

  • 1
    Mix cake mix, oil, water, and eggs according to package directions.
  • 2
    Roughly chop 2 - 2 1/2 rows of Oreos and fold into cake batter.
  • 3
    Bake in a sprayed 9x13 pan, 26 - 31 minutes. Let cake cool completely before frosting.
  • 4
    In a stand mixer, beat softened butter and cream cheese together approximately 3 - 4 minutes. Add vanilla and mix until incorporated.
  • 5
    Slowly mix powdered sugar into sugar/butter mixture. Once all powdered sugar is incorporated, mix at higher speed another 2 minutes. Add heavy cream or milk as needed to reach frosting consistency desired.
  • 6
    Finely chop 4 - 5 Oreos and gently fold into cream cheese frosting. Be gentle! Otherwise you’ll end up with gray-ish black icing!
  • 7
    Spread over cake and roughly chop another 1-2 Oreos for decorating the top. You can also add a few sprinkles, if desired.
