Oreo Cake

Guess you can tell by now that this cook has a sweet tooth? Oh, but not just a sweet tooth, hers is a chocolate sweet tooth!
*I picked this out of a magazine - who knows which one.
1 pkg. (18 oz) devil's food cake mix
1 pkg (3.9) instant chocolate pudding
3 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
10 creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos), coarsely chopped, 1 cup (I likely used a Save-alot brand)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips ( I used regular)
1/2 cup butter at room temp
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1-2 Tbsp milk
2 cans frosting
Additional cookies, optional
-Preheat oven to 350. Coat 2 (round or square) 9" pans.
-At low speed, beat cake mix, pudding mix, 1 cup water, eggs, and oil for 30 seconds.
-Increase speed to medium-high; beat 2 minutes.
-Reduce speed to low; beat chopped cookies and chips into batter.
-Divide batter between two pans.
-Bake for 30-35 minutes until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
-Cool 20 minutes.
-Remove from pans; cool completely on rack. (Very important that it cools completely-filling will melt and make a mess if the cake is not cool!)
At medium speed beat butter until smooth. Reduce speed to low.
Beat in confectioners' sugar and vanilla until well combined. (Will be thick at this point)
Beat in milk, 1Tbsp at a time until smooth and fluffy.
Place 1 (completely cool) cake layer on serving plate; evenly spread with filling.
Place remaining cake layer over filling, top side up.
**Ice cake with chocolate frosting and garnish with extra cookies, as desired.
