Recipe Tips

1

Heat oven to 350°F. Cover bottoms of 3 (8-inch) round pans with parchment; spray with cooking spray.

2

Chop 8 cookies. Prepare cake batter as directed on package; stir in chopped cookies. Pour evenly into prepared pans.

3

Bake 15 to 18 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool 10 min. Remove cakes from pans to wire racks; cool completely.

4

Trim rounded tops off cake layers if necessary to make layers level. Discard trimmings or reserve for snacking.

5

Microwave cream and chocolate in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring every 30 sec. Cool slightly.

6

Meanwhile, reserve 1/4 cup frosting for later use. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate; spread with half of the remaining frosting. Cut 3-inch round from center of 1 of the remaining cake layers; reserve center cutout for later use. Place cake layer (with center piece removed) on cake layer on plate; spread with remaining frosting. Fill hole with sprinkles. Cover with remaining cake layer.

7

Spread 1 Tbsp. chocolate mixture onto reserved center cake cutout; set aside. Spread remaining chocolate mixture onto top of cake. Place cutout on top of cake. Decorate with reserved frosting and remaining cookies.
