What's Cookin' Wednesday ~ Oreo Cupcakes

Oreo Cupcakes
What you need:
1 box of yellow cake mix (make as instructed)
(eggs, oil, water as per box)
24 Oreos
2 cups plus 24 mini Oreos
Confectioners Sugar
Vanilla Extract
1 stick of butter
What you do:
Pre-heat oven as per the box cake mix (350*)
Make your cake mix as instructed
In a small food processor, grind up one cup of mini Oreos
Add ground cookies to cake batter and fold in with spatula
Line cupcake pan with liners
Place one normal size Oreo in the bottom of each cupcake liner
Pour batter in gently
Bake as instructed per box - keep an eye on them as to not over cook
Cool completely
My favorite box cake
Grinding up the mini Oreos

Added the Oreos to the cake batter

Placed the Oreos into the liners

Batter poured on top of Oreo

Baked cupcakes - cooling
For the Frosting
In a stand mixer, plop in your stick of butter
Cream butter a bit
Add box of confectioners sugar
Add about 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
Add splashes of milk until you reach desired consistency
(I'm sorry I don't have an exact measurement, it's tricky to judge)
Back to your small food processor, grind up another cup of mini Oreos
Add ground up Oreos to frosting
Gently fold into frosting
I used Domino sugar

After I added my cookies
These are DANGEROUS! haha

Frost your cupcakes as you wish!
Decorate with mini Oreo on top....
Keep in mind when frosting, if you use a tip - the frosting is chunky because of the cookies so you need a wide mouth tip.

These are so delicious! If you love Oreos you will LOVE this.
And here's a peek inside...

Happy Hump-day Ladies!
