Cookies and Cream Cupcakes
Our family's obsession with all things Oreo should be glaringly obvious at this point, so when I saw the recipe for Cookies and Cream cupcakes on Confessions of a Cookbook Queen, it didn't take me much convincing to give these a try. I have already tried a couple of her recipes before (Thin Mint Truffles and Ice Cream Cone Rice Krispy Treats), and they both came out fantastic......so I knew this one would as well! If you haven't checked out her blog before, you've gotta see all of the amazing sweets she comes up with!
I did make a couple of changes....mainly because of what I had on hand. I didn't have any marshmallow fluff, so I left out the filling, and the only box cake mix I had was a chocolate one, so I used that (just following the box instructions). The frosting is what really makes these for me......a fantastic vanilla buttercream blended with crushed Oreos! And don't forget the whole Oreo that gets placed at the bottom of the cupcake liner....a fantastic surprise!
The day after I made these, I saw that Bakerella had done her own version of a Cookies and Cream cupcake. It appears that Oreos are on everyone's brains these days!
Check out Confessions of a Cookbook Queen for the recipe.....and Enjoy!!
