Oreo Cupcakes | Munchies

1 11 2011

I fell in love with miniature Oreo cupcakes a couple years ago at the Cupcake Smackdown.   I’ve always wanted to make them so I finally decided to do it.  Turns out they are super simple and you can make them a ton of different ways.

You will need:

*White cake mix

*Vanilla Frosting

*Miniature Oreos

First I placed a couple handfuls of Oreos in a plastic bag(easy clean up)

Then I got a little country.  I didn’t have a mallet so I used…a hammer to break up the cookies. Yep, a hammer.

Then I made  the cake batter as instructed by Pillsbury.

When the batter was nice and smooth, I added the cookie crumbs.  I found it better to use more cookies but you can add to your taste.

I poured the beautiful batter into the cupcakes wrappers, about 3/4 full.  Then baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes.

While the cupcakes were cooling, I got the frosting ready.  I mixed in the cookie crumbs.  Then I used a plastic bag as a make shift pastry bag, all I had to do was clip the corner.

And to top it all off I placed a miniature Oreo cookie on top.

Ta-dahh!  On some I used plain vanilla frosting, sprinkled them with crumbs and topped them with a cookie.  I prefer the cookies mixed in the frosting though.

Give it try!  Let me know what ya think!

Week 43: Symmetry

14 12 2010

Oh delicious symmetry…warm, gooey, chocolatey symmetry.  Nom nom nom.  Nothing like baking peanut butter chocolate chip cookies while watching the Biggest Loser Finale.  Yes, it makes me feel a little guilty buuuuuutt I went to the gym today and had fish with broccoli for dinner.  I do believe a cookie with a glass of milk is allowed. 🙂

Are you drooling a little bit?  Thought so. 🙂  They were yummy!
