Anybody love Oreos??
I do love the Oreo cream. But you can keep the chocolate part.
No offense to Oreos though, I also personally don’t like chocolate cake that much.
Soooo, why did I make a chocolate cupcake with Oreos?
I thought Oreo Cupcakes sounded yummy!
I made these a few weeks ago, and they were good, so I thought I would share.
It’s a chocolate cupcake with chunks of Oreos inside. You’ve probably seen them before, but I had never made them.
I used mini Oreos on top because they’re cuter. I even put crushed Oreos in the frosting!
In summary, everyone really liked them.
So did I.
Well… I ate the frosting and gave someone else the cupcake. And I ate the cream from the mini Oreo on top.
I want to make this as simple as possible for you:
Make your favorite chocolate cupcake batter (yes, you can even use a box mix—I won’t tell).
Put pieces of Oreos at the bottom of each cupcake cup. (I used mini Oreos instead).
Pour the batter on top and bake.
- 1 C shortening
- 4 C powdered sugar
- 1 t vanilla
- 4-5 T milk
- 2 or 3 t (or more!) Oreo cookie crumbs
Beat the shortening with a mixer until smooth.
Add vanilla and mix until combined.
Add and mix the powdered sugar gradually.
Add and mix milk gradually until you get the right consistency.
Add the cookie crumbs and mix.
