  • 1 boxed chocolate cake mix can use from scratch recipe if preferred!
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 20 Oreo cookies crushed
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 8 oz tub of cool whip or fresh whipped cream


  • 'Doctor' up the cake mix by using milk instead of water and melted butter instead of oil. Bake in a 9X13 pan according to the packages directions.
  • While the cake is baking, combine the butter, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and crushed Oreos. Mix until well combined.
  • Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk in and combine with the Oreo mixture. The consistency should now be pourable. Set aside until the cake has finished baking.
  • Once the cake has finished baking, remove from oven and let the cake rest for 5 minutes.
  • Using the back of a wooden spoon, poke holes in the cake. I usually go back and forth creating rows until the entire cake has been poked.
  • Pour the cookies and cream 'filling' over the cake and spread to cover the entire cake.
  • Let cool completely. (there will be a layer of the filling left onto of the cake that hardens like icing.)
  • Once the cake has cooled completely, spread the cool whip (or homemade whipped cream) onto the cake and garnish with crushed oreos.
  • To make homemade whipped cream: whip 1 1/2 cups whipping cream, 1/3 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla together until stiff peaks form.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
