Mint Cookies and Cream Cake
Calling all mint lovers!!
I love love mint, but I sometimes feel like I am the only one. Please correct me if I am wrong. Mint lovers, unite! Mint is likely not a hated flavour, but in a world of strawberry, cookie butter, and Nutella, it is probably low on most people's list of flavors they'd like to see turned into a cake.
Sometimes to you have to pull some pretty cheap tricks in the kitchen. Like hiding zucchini in brownies or pureed carrots in mac 'n cheese for picky kids - or whatever clever moms keep up their sleeves. Since I am skeptical of the world's enthusiasm for mint, I figured I'd better trash up this recipe to make sure everyone was on board. Make it totally irresistible. Something even mint cynics could not turn down. A twist that turns the classic combination of chocolate and mint into something totally outrageous and whimsical.
Time to pull out the big guns - Chocolate Sandwich Cookies! Better known as just plain ol' Oreos. And who can say no to Oreos? Nobody.
This Mint Cookies and Cream Cake exudes, even oozes FUN! Inthe way sprinkles make up a "Funfetti Cake," I threw crushed-up cookies straight into the batter and buttercream. Layers of cookie-studded vanilla cake are paired with a silky mint buttercream then smothered in minty, crushed cookie mint buttercream. Top take it over the top, I drizzled the frosted cake with chocolate glaze and finished it off with swirls of extra buttercream and mini Oreos.
