I almost didnt share this cake with you.
Its so rich. So thick. So densely packed with sugary sweetness. Not exactly the perfect spring time dessert!
(Its pretty sad when I realized that this is the second time I have started a blog post like that!)
But keeping things from you is not good for me. My eyes twitches and my stomach is in knots. And instead of enjoying The RHoNY my mind drifts to you and the wall between us.
I may have just created that wall in my head.
This cake is 100% inspired by my favorite blizzard from Dairy Queen.
It is an Oreo Heath Blizzard with no hot fudge. They add hot fudge to the Heath Blizzards, and it is very important to specify that you do not want that fudge. Its takes away from the glorious Oreo flavor.
I have been ordering it for about six years now. I crave it in the winter. I dream of it in the summer.
And as I was driving home from DQ enjoying my favorite concoction, I realized.
I need to make this a cake.
White cake with Oreo chunks, Heath frosting, and chopped up Heath bar toppings.
Real Oreo chunks. I used about 30 cookies (or two rows in a package) and hand chopped each cookie into four piece. No fine grate here!
I took one cup of frosting and added 1/2 cup of Heath chips for the frosting between the layers of cake. (in the baking aisle of the grocery store)
I bought a bag of Heath bars a did a rough chop for the topping.
Things I might do differently:
Add more Oreo. Lots more. Maybe even some in the frosting too.
Try it as chocolate Oreo cake instead of white.
Use a vanilla Swiss Meringue buttercream icing. I think a more subtle sweetness would compliment the Oreo and Heath better.
Do you have a great Swiss Meringue that you use? I am on the hunt for the best one!
This cake is delicious as is, but I cant wait to make it again with the alterations.
And trust me, I will be making this again. I will make it my mission to perfect this recipe.
That is just the kind of sacrifices I will make for you.
And if you happen to love Oreo and Heath as much as I do, well… do you recommend any good workouts?
