Cupcake Carnival: Cookies & Cream Oreo Cupcakes

Welcome to the Cupcake Carnival!

Here is a new cupcake recipe that I tried out this week.
It actually took me 3 different attempts/combination's to get it just right.
And, the third time was a charm, these cupcakes are GOOD!

Cookies & Cream Oreo Cupcakes

Here is what you need!
For the cupcakes:
A box of white cake mix & a package of Double Stuff Oreos.

Make cupcake batter according to package directions. Set aside.
Twist apart 24 Double Stuff Oreos.
Place the wafer with filling on it, filling side up, in the bottom of each paper liner.
(Set aside the other half of the 24 plain wafers....you will use them later for the frosting/garnish!)
I had 3 little helpers organize my Oreo's:
Then, with the remaining FULL Oreos in the package, put them in a ziplock bag & use a rolling pin to crush them up.
(I don't crush them up too finely, I like chunks of Oreo)
Fold in the Oreo pieces into the batter.
(I leave some of the finely crushed Oreo crumbs in the bag to use later as a garnish)

Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full & bake according to cake mix directions.
Once cooked, let fully cool before you add the frosting!
Now, for the frosting:
1 package of Cream Cheese (at room temperature)
1 stick of Butter (at room temperature)
4 cups Powdered Sugar
1/4 cup Whipping Cream (Milk will work if you don't have cream)
1 TBSP vanilla extract
24 Oreo halves (that you set aside earlier)

Mix together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, cream & vanilla with a hand mixer for about 2 minutes.
Frost each cupcake & then sprinkle on some of the Oreo crumbs as garnish.
Once you are about to serve the cupcakes, add the additional Oreo half!
Add the Oreo garnish right before serving (it can get soggy if you add it to early)
Look how fun these cupcakes are! The Oreo at the bottom is my favorite part!
These cupcakes were GOOD!
My Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes are still my favorite, but Kevin likes these Oreo ones better. They taste like Cookies & Cream Ice Cream!

    i linked up the caramel apple cupcakes i made for our fall supper club, they were delicious and perfect for a halloween/fall party!

  5. Those look amazing! I'm going to HAVE to try those! Maybe I shouldn't copy these recipes, I have to many dessert recipes that I want to try and not enough time to run all the calories off! Thanks for the sweet treat ideas! :)

  6. this might be the yummiest linky party EVER. :) I don't think I have any unique recipes to contribute, but I have a feeling I will definitely be participating in other ways. :) Oreos are my weakness. I may have to replicate your recipe - especially since its cake mix based. SIMPLE! :)

  7. Such a fun linky party! Love seeing all the new recipes pour in....will never be a shortage of cupcakey ideas that's for sure! Happy Birth Month to you guys! Looks like your sweet tooth will be covered. Gotta run out and get some double stuffed Oreos....pronto! After all, cookies and cream is one of my favorite ice creams! Have a great week. ;-)

  8. Mmmm... Yummy! Those look really good!

  9. Oh my gosh! Those look sooo good and I have just added all of those ingredients to my grocery list for the week!

  10. Saw this post this morning and just made them tonight! They were YUMMY!! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  11. Hey I had starred this to come back to the cupcake links!

    I was going to throw out a suggestion. I would say I end up printing about 90% of the recipe tutorials you post and trying them out at home. Could you do printable version at the bottom, where you just put the text? Otherwise if someone wants to make it, they have to copy small amounts of text.

    The peanut butter cup cupcake link is a great example of what I mean!

  12. I made your oreo cupcakes last night and just posted about them on my blog with a link to yours. If you see traffic from me, that is why!


  13. Laura- That is so funny you posted that...on my summer "to do" list is to go through all my recipe posts & make digital recipe cards to add to the posts! I will post when I get them all done :)

  14. okay, I added a printable recipe card, size 3x5. Just click the image, save to your computer & print!

  15. Mmmmm, I'm featuring this on womenwhodoitall.blogspot.com tomorrow.

    if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having
    problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  33. Yes, these cupcakes look awesome as nearly everyone has posted. I only saw one person that actually tried the recipe and it worked for her. I baked 24 cupcakes and was preparing to make another two dozen. I thought I'd give the cupcakes a taste. The liner peeled away from the top of the cupcake, but stuck to the oreo cookie. What a mess! I tried a few more cookies and the same thing happened. I need to run back to the store to buy more ingredients and start all over. Though it looks like a good idea, I don't recommend putting the halved cookie on the bottom.
