Oreo Cupcakes Recipe

Twist, link, dunk! Oreo tagged itself as “milk’s favorite cookie” but it’s definitely not just milk who’s fond of this chocolate cookie with creamy filling. What I love more about Oreo cookies is that they can be used in making many comforting desserts. But I can attest that one of the best tasting and easiest desserts that you can serve at parties or have at home would be these moist and rich Oreo cupcakes. I’m confident enough that these treats will surely satisfy anyone’s craving!

Let’s break down some important things that I did in making these cookies and cream cupcakes. First, to make sure that I can really taste the Oreo, I mixed in some cookie crumbs in the batter and the buttercream mixture. Just a reminder to check that the cookies in the icing are really crushed into tiny bits because you don’t want the Oreo buttercream frosting blocking the piping tip. A food processor or blender can really help. Mini Oreos are now available so you can place a couple of them on top of the cookies and cream frosting. Cute, isn’t it?

Overall, this Oreo cupcake recipe is really easy to follow so I hope you’ll make it too. After trying them, you can also add a bit of pizzazz to the original and make some Oreo cheesecake cupcakes! Serve them to your loved ones, take them to bake sales, or just eat them on your own (no judgement *wink*).
