OREO COOKIES - These cookies provide that classic chocolate crunch we all love, offering a delicious contrast to the other ingredients.
SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK - This adds a rich, creamy texture and makes the cake incredibly moist.
WHIPPED TOPPING - I used a tub of Cool Whip, but you can use any whipped topping. The fluffy whipped topping gives the cake an airy lift.
CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX - This serves as the cake base, making the recipe incredibly easy to put together. Use your favorite chocolate cake mix. Look for a box chocolate fudge cake mix to make this recipe extra fudgy.
UNSALTED BUTTER - Butter gives the cake a moist and rich flavor that complements the chocolate perfectly.
How To Make An Oreo Dump Cake
Please check the printable recipe card below for more detailed instructions.
- Spray the baking pan with cooking spray.
- Make layer of Oreo cookies and pour sweetened condensed milk over the cookies.
- Spread an even layer of thawed whipped topping and sprinkle cake mix on top.
- Top the cake mix with sliced butter and bake in a preheated oven at 350º Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and decorate with crushed Oreos.
Recipe Success Tips
LAYER EVENLY - Distribute Oreos and cake mix for consistent flavor in each bite.
OIL UP - Generously grease the baking dish to prevent sticking.
TEMPERATURE - Make sure the oven is fully preheated before popping in the cake.
TOOTHPICK TEST - To ensure it's cooked through, insert a toothpick; it should come out mostly clean.
VANILLA ICE CREAM - The creaminess of vanilla ice cream complements the rich chocolate layers of the cake. So go ahead and add a (large) scoop of vanilla ice cream.
CHOCOLATE SYRUP - Drizzling a bit of chocolate syrup over your slice takes the cocoa flavor up a notch without overwhelming the palate. Caramel sauce also works well if you're looking to mix it up a bit.
STORE - Transfer your Oreo Dump Cake to an airtight container once it is cool. Place a sheet of wax paper or plastic wrap between any stacked slices to prevent them from sticking together. Keep the container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
FREEZE - If you're looking to enjoy this cake at a later date, consider freezing it. First, let the cake cool completely. Then, cut it into individual slices and wrap each slice tightly in plastic wrap, followed by a layer of aluminum foil. Store these wrapped pieces in a resealable plastic freezer bag. They'll stay good for up to 3 months.
REHEAT - When the craving hits, and you want to relive the Oreo magic, you have two options. If the cake is stored in the fridge, microwave a slice for about 20-30 seconds. If frozen, it's best to thaw the slice in the refrigerator overnight before microwaving.
