CHOCOLATE OREO CAKE

This Chocolate Oreo Cake is to die for! A moist chocolate cake full of Oreo icing! And not just any Oreo icing - it is FULL of crushed up Oreos. An Oreo lover’s dream.

CHOCOLATE OREO CAKE
So you might remember that last year I mentioned that the hubs and I were going to South Africa, both to visit his family and for me to see the country. Well, we were supposed to go over Thanksgiving and into December, but ended up having to postpone the trip because of a delay with getting the hubs’ citizenship.

It has taken a LOT longer than we expected based on some other people’s experiences, but finally the hubs has the final interview and test on Monday! We can’t wait for him to be done with it. Hopefully the finally “ceremony” where he’ll actually receive the citizenship won’t take too long – but of course we aren’t holding our breath.

You can be sure that once we have the citizenship, we’ll be applying for his passport and re-booking the trip.

But for now, he’s been studying for the test. He’s pretty much grown up in the U.S., so it’s not like it’s stuff he hadn’t learned before, but it’s amazing how much of it you forget.
