Oreo Cupcake Recipe. Enough Said

Be still my beating heart! For someone who does not like chocolate as a general rule, I sure sorta love this little dessert. My love started a few months back when my favorite little bakery that I am not allowed to eat at decided to make Oreo Cupcakes. It was a Wednesday. They generally make them only on Saturdays. That was the best Wednesday of my life thus far. And I bought one. It was $3.25. Money very well spent.

Except I have been pining away for them ever since that fateful day. For $3.25, I can buy my own bag of oreo's and make 2 dozen. And so I did. Today. Between tending to my "i-only-want-mommy-24/7" toddler.

Well, I don;t have any pictures right now but it was super easy that you don't need it.

Make this chocolate cake recipe for the cupcakes.

1      (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
2      1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
3      1 cup sour cream
4      1 cup vegetable oil
5      4 eggs
6      1/2 cup water
7      1.5 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mix, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs and water. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into cupcake liners. Bake until done and then cool on the rack... or counter. Or barstool. Whatever. 

Then add a LITTLE of the mix to the bottom of the cupcake liner.
Next add and entire oreo. Double stuffed. Mint, reduced fat. Scratch that. DO NOT use reduced fat. That is just pointless if you are making these little gems.
Then add a final scoop of the above mentioned chocolate cake batter.


Now add your butter cream frosting on top. Recipe below.

6 tbsp. butter
1 cup powdered sugar
4 tbsp. cocoa
2 to 3 tbsp. milk or heavy whipping cream
Crushed/blended oreo's

1. Cream butter.2. Combine sugar and cocoa and oreo's
3. Add sugar and cocoa and oreo mixture to butter
4. Add milk to and butter mixture. I would start with 2 tbsp. of milk and if it's too thick add another tbsp. of milk.

 Its pretty if you can pipe it one. If you don;t have a big enough tip, just take off the tip. The plastic thing alone will work just fine.

And here is the best part. Eat. All of them. Well, at least two. And have a cup of milk.

You can thank me later. Your hips and thighs may not but your tastebuds will! :)
