well blended. Gently stir in whipped cream and crushed cookies. Place one of
the cake layers on serving plate, top-side down.

remaining filling mixture Pat the very finely ground cookie crumbs onto
the sides of the cake. Sprinkle top of cake with any remaining fine crumb
and top with the coarse, larger cookie pieces

Tips on Crushing Cookies: Crush 12 Oreo cookies to add to the filling. Place
in zip top plastic bag and crush coarsely with rolling pin. Crush 10 Oreo
cookies for the garnish very coarsely leaving many large chunks for the top
of the cake. These can be crush by placing cookies in zip top plastic bag
and crush with rolling pin. . Crush about 40 Chocolate Wafers or Oreo
cookies for the sides of the cake to make 2 cups cookie crumbs. These need
to be crushed into a very fine, even crumb for the sides of the cake. If you
have a food processor, blender or a mini processor. This will make a very
nice fine crumb.

*You can use oreo’s but these will not create as fine a crumb as plain
chocolate wafers because of the oreo filling.
