Cookies & Cream Cake Filling
If you love Oreo cookies you will love this cake filling. It's creamy and delicious with a nice crunch from the Oreo cookies. Click here to the Chocolate Cake recipe I use with this filling. You can finish the cake with your favorite buttercream. I recommend my Crusting Cream Cheese buttercream or you can use Bettercream or Stabilized Whipped Cream for a lighter flavor.
If you prefer, you can use Swiss or Italian Buttercreams.
4 ounces (1 stick) of butter (room temperature)
8 ounces of cream cheese (room temperature)
2 lb. (8 cups) confectioners sugar
Crushed Oreos (I use this ones)
*NOTE: Do not use light cream cheese or butter substitute.
If margarine is used, icing will be softer.
*In a mixer bowl cream butter and cream cheese together and mix until smooth.
*Add the vanilla extract.
*Add Confectioners Sugar and beat until is mixed well and you get to a good consistency. It can take between 4 to 5 cups of sugar. Add 1/2 a cup at a time to ensure you get right the consistency. I prefer it not to be too soft as it holds better inside the cake. If you add too much sugar by mistake you can add a bit of heavy cream to soften it.
*Add the crushed Oreos. I love using Thin Oreos for this but you can use the regular ones. You can add as much Oreos as you want. I usually add a regular size bag of Oreos to the mix but you can use less if you prefer. You can crush the cookies in a food processor or place them in a plastic bag and crush them manually. I prefer leaving some medium size pieces to get a crunch in the filling but you can crush them completely if you prefer.
