I get requests for these cupcakes. I don’t mean to sound proud or anything, I just mean that they are a really good recipe. That is, the Oreo you can find on the bottom is really clever, and the frosting is so amazing that I might take it over the previously-exalted peanut butter cream cheese frosting. Right??
But I can’t take credit for any of it. The Oreo in the bottom idea is not mine; I can’t remember where I saw it, but I am sure glad that it happened. I just use a one-bowl recipe for chocolate cake, pour it over the cookies…
and voila! Neat, eh?
Make these for your enemies any day of the week. It will turn them into lifelong, self-sacrificing friends. And besides, loving your enemies is Biblical.
I can take no credit for the abundance of goodwill flowing in your direction after you pass these babies around,
Oreo Cupcakes with Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting
Adapted from somewhere
For the cupcakes:
24 Oreos, divided
For the frosting:
8 ounces cream cheese (light works fine)
8 tablespoons (1/2 cup) butter
3-4 cups powdered sugar
24 oreo halves
Halve the Oreos, and place the side with the cream face up in the bottom of a lined cupcake pan. Reserve the other halves. Whip up your chocolate cake of choice and divide evenly over the cupcakes, filling no more than two thirds full. Bake as directed. Let cool.
For the frosting, beat together the butter and cream cheese. Add the powdered sugar, beating until you reach the consistency you want. Crush the reserved Oreo halves in food processor…or with your hands and a Ziploc. Just make sure they are really fine crumbs, whatever you do. Stir the crushed Oreos into the frosting and pipe as desired.
