Oreo Cupcakes

I found this yummy recipe at
Lemonade Makin' Mama's website
Ingredients for cupcakes:
  • yellow box cake mix
  • Oreo cookies (regular, not double-sstuffed)
Directions for cupcakes:
  1. Line two cupcake tins with paper liners (24).
  2. Place a whole Oreo cookie in bottom of each liner.
  3. Crush remaining cookies and set aside half of cookie crumbs. (I use a food processor.)
  4. Mix yellow box cake mix per package instructions.
  5. Stir 1/2 of cookie crumbs in cake batter.
  6. Spoon Oreo batter into liners.
  7. Bake according to box instructions...will probably have to reduce the baking time because of the cookie in the bottom.
Ingredients for frosting:
  • 2 1/4 sticks butter
  • 3 1/4 cups + 2 TBSP. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 TBSP. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • remaining crushed Oreos
Directions for frosting:
  1. Beat butter and 3/4 cup powdered sugar until pale and fluffy.
  2. Gradually add the rest of the powdered sugar.
  3. Add milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Beat until pale and fluffy.
  5. Stir in remaining crushed Oreos.
  6. Store at room temperature until ready to use.
  7. Pipe frosting on cooled cupcakes and place a mini Oreo on top.
