Oreos + cupcakes = delicious

Hello, friends! I have been crazy busy (a post coming on that later) but I wanted to tell you about the delicious cupcakes I made for our Super Bowl party.

I found the recipe on Pinterest and kind of had to change it up a bit because the Oreos did not go as far as they should have. Hmmm…

Also, I got to use my mother-in-law’s cool Pampered Chef icing thing to decorate. That was cool and made the process so much fun!

Here’s the recipe with the simple changes I made:

Oreo Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

Ingredients:

  • boxed white cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package of Oreos
  • 10 TBSP butter
  • 10 oz cream cheese
  • 2 1/2 TBSP sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 5 cups powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Line cupcake pan(s) for 24 cupcakes.
  2. Split 24 Oreo cookies into halves leaving the cream on one half (that leaves you with 24 creamed wafers and 24 blank wafers).
  3. Put creamed wafers in the bottom of each cupcake liner.
  4. Break the blank wafers into crumbs and put aside.
  5. In a large bowl mix cake mix, eggs, melted butter and water on low for one minute and then on high until it’s thick and creamy.
  6. Fold in most of the cookie crumbs you made in step 4. I had to save some for the garnish at the end.
  7. Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Cut 12 cookies in half across the diameter of the cookie so you have 24 total half-circles for garnish.
  9. In a large bowl, mix butter and cream cheese together. Whip until fluffy and then add in sour cream and vanilla.
  10. Add powdered sugar in slowly and mix until smooth.
  11. Once the cupcakes have cooled, pipe the icing on and garnish with cookie-halves and crumbs.
