RECIPE: Chocolate and Oreo Cakenie

Firstly, let's address the word 'Cakenie' - I made it up. It's not a real word - yet - but I think it should be, as it perfectly describes the chocolate creation I made the other day. It's a bit like cake, a bit like brownie (that's where the 'nie' comes from) and is filled to the brim with chocolate. Yes, I've just described a chocolate lovers heaven. This is such a good recipe for using up any chocolate you have, it's so versatile and deliciously treaty.

What you'll need:
Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cupcake Mix
Eggs, Oil and Water in accordance with the packet instructions
The following ingredients are optional - just use whatever chocolate you have in. This is what I used:
1/2 packet of Oreo's
Handful of Cadbury Pebbles
Handful of White Chocolate Chips
Handful of Giant Chocolate Buttons
150g Galaxy chocolate, roughly chopped
What to do:
1) Make the chocolate cupcake mix up as instructed on the packet.
2) Grease and line a large, flat ovenproof dish - I used one we would usually cook lasagne in - you know the kind? Then pour in the cupcake mixture.

3) I then mixed in the Galaxy chocolate into the chocolate cupcake mix so that you couldn't see it anymore. Next I sprinkled over the other delicious, chocolatey treats all over the mixture. It's a good idea to slightly press some of the items down, just so that they are fixed into the sponge mixture.
4) Bake in a preheated oven (180'C) for around 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean from cake batter. There will probably some melted chocolate on the skewer, so try to distinguish between the two when checking if it's cooked.
5) Leave to cool for 10 minutes and then carefully remove the whole cakenie from the container, using the sides of greaseproof paper. Place on a wire rack to cool. After its cooled for around 20 minutes cut it into squares and allow to cool completely. At this point it will be evident as to why I've called this a cakenie -  there is so much chocolate that it gives the gooey consistency of a brownie, yet it's a cake mixture.
