You will want to let this cool a bit, before pouring it over your cake.
The longer you let it cool, the thicker it will get.
I let it set about ten minutes.
After the Chocolate Kahlua Ganache was poured over it.
- 1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix
- Butter, melted
- 1 box cream cheese
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 container Cool Whip
- Crushed mini Oreo's, as desired
- 4 oz each of Bittersweet and semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 tbsp kahluha
- 1 cup heavy cream
Prepare the cake mix as directed on the back of the box. I used a plain box of Devil’s Food cake mix – with a few changes.
I used melted butter instead of oil (same amount).
Instead of water, I added an extra egg and milk. (egg+milk = same as water amount).
I baked it 50 degrees lower than the box called for and 10 minutes longer.
A quick filling of creamy goodness in between the two layers was all I had planned.
1 Pack of cream cheese (softened) whipped with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
Then I folded in a container of Cool Whip and few bags of crushed mini Oreos.
OK. Time to make the top all pretty!
Chocolate Ganache is SUPER easy to make — but it intimidates a lot of people.
First, grind/chop up some chocolate. Some recipes say Bittersweet, some say Semisweet.
I do half and half… about 4 ounces of each.
Keep stirring it until the chocolate is fully melted.You will want to let this cool a bit, before pouring it over your cake. The longer you let it cool, the thicker it will get. I let it set about ten minutes.
