Best Ever Oreo Cupcakes


Alright folks
Fasten your seatbelts.
This recipe is a NEW HIT!

I {may} have eaten 1 or 4 of these babies.
I made some up for a dear friend of ours who had a birthday last weekend.
His wife said he LOVES Oreos.
So Oreos it was.
This recipe is honestly my new fave now....right up there with THIS one.

I found the recipe on....you guessed it....Pinterest.
Spotted HERE by a gal that goes by the name of Food Snots.
{I like her already}.

Enjoy.
And make extra. 

BEST EVER OREO CUPCAKES


1 package Oreo Cookies, regular size

1 package Mini Oreo Cookies, for decoration (optional)

1 package chocolate cake mix (mix according to directions on box)
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temperature
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
cupcake liners

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix packaged cake mix according to directions (do not bake). Line cupcake tins with liner, place a regular size Oreo cookie in the bottom of each liner. 





Take 1/2 of remaining cookies and chop coarsely and add to cake mix. Fill the cupcake tins. Bake for 15 minutes (or according to box directions). While cupcakes are baking make the frosting.



Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla, then add powdered sugar slowly until blended well. Chop remaining regular-sized Oreos very fine (I put the cookies in the food processor instead of trying to chop them up super fine and it worked out really well). Add to frosting. After cupcakes have cooled frost and decorate with Mini Oreos.
