Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Cake

This was round number 2 of my cake making for my daughter's birthday party. I'm not one to make the same thing twice that often, so when I saw this recipe on pinterest it was yet another one that I wanted to try out! It was definitely worth making and might even be one that someone requests again... It was super yummy - especially the cream cheese filling! Wow! I doubled this to serve at the party and only had about half of the second one left when we were done. That was on top of the 2 lemon pies that we also had! :)

(recipe found on pinterest via www.kraftrecipes.com)

1 package devil's food cake mix
4 squares semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 cup butter
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups thawed whipped topping
12 oreo cookies, coarsely crushed

Heat oven to 350. Prepare cake batter and bake in 2 (9inch) round pans as directed on package. Cool cakes in pans 10 minutes. Invert onto wire racks; gently remove pans. Cool cakes completely. Microwave chocolate and butter in small microwaveable bowl on high 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gently stir in whipped topping and crushed cookies. Place 1 cake layer on plate, spread with cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread top with chocolate glaze; let stand for 10 minutes or until firm. Keep refrigerated.
