Chocolate Cookies 'n Cream Torte

This is a fun recipe. I use Pampered Chef's Torte Pans...they are recessed and have an area to fill with your own favorite fillings. I've made two different recipes with them, and the look alone is brilliant...the taste is even better.

ingredients:
1 pkg devil's food cake mix (plus ingredients)
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 container (8 oz) cool whip, thawed
10 oreos, smashed
chocolate syrup or hot fudge, melted

directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour Torte Pans; set aside. Prepare cake mix according to package directions; divide batter equally between pans. Bake 18-22 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes. Remove cakes from pans; cool completely.
2. Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar until smooth. Fold in cool whip. Fold in crushed oreo cookie crumbs.

3. Place one cake layer on serving plate. Spread half of the filing over the cake layer, in recessed area.
4. Place 2nd cake layer on top, and spread the remaining filling over this top layer. Drizzle chocolate over the top, and crush 1 or 2 more oreos for garnishing.

(Same idea, with slight variations)
