recipe: devil's food marshmallow cake

I was in an Oreo mood and googled recipes that involve the cookie sandwich. This is from the Nabisco website and wow, it was yummy.

1 package devil's food cake mix
20 Oreos
3 cups Cool Whip
2 1/2 cups mini-marshmallows

Prepare cake batter and bake in 2 (9-inch) round cake pans as directed on box. Cool completely. Coarsely chop 12 of the Oreos. Add to 2 cups of Cool Whip in large bowl with 1 1/2 cups of the marshmallows; stir gently until well blended. Place 1 of the cake layers on serving plate; spread with the Cool Whip topping mixture. Cover with the second cake layer. Frost with remaining 1 cup Cool Whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Top with the remaining 8 Oreos, halved, and the remaining 1 cup marshmallows just before serving.

I embellished a little and now that I've made it once, my mind is coming up with all kinds of other ideas. Before adding the Oreos and marshmallows to the top, I drizzled some chocolate Magic Shell and let it harden. You could also use colored marshmallows or tint your Cool Whip. I also thought of adding mini-chocolate chips to the middle layer of Cool Whip, Oreos and marshmallows. They could also be sprinkled on the top as well. You could also use the 3 ingredients from the middle and cover the sides of the cake with it. I like being able to see all 3 layers but that's just another idea. The cake was a major hit and super easy: win-win :-)
