I went to visit Bryn Du Mansion, where I used to intern at last summer. I didn’t want to show up empty handed, so I decided to bake something. Bruce, my boss, loves Oreos and even has a poster of a stack of Oreos with milk. So I decided I wanted to bake him Oreo cupcakes. I’m not a master baker yet so I did a Google search for “Easy Oreo cupcakes” and this recipe popped up. I loved it and wanted to share it with you.
|Be sure to put an Oreo on the bottom, cream
side facing up, before you pour in the batter.
Yield: 30 cupcakes
Ingredients: 1 box of white cake mix (I used vanilla cake mix)
Eggs, water, and oil or whatever the cake mix needs
1 tub of Frosting (I used cream cheese)
2 packs of Oreos (I bought 1 family pack and used them all up)
Preheat the oven according to the directions on the cake mix box (usually 350).
Next, prepare the cake mix as directed.
Crush or chop 14 Oreos and gently mix them into the batter. I crushed them by putting them into a ziploc bag and crushing it with a rolling pin.
Place cupcake liners in the pan. Spray the inside of the liners with oil.
Next, twist as many Oreos as you have cupcake liners in half.
Place the half with cookie and white cream on it in the bottom of each cupcake.

my Oreo frosting I made and my chopped Oreos.
The other halves (without cream) will be used in the frosting. Fill each cupcake about 1/3 full with batter (they really plump up).
Bake as directed on the cake mix box.
While their baking, prep the frosting. Chop the other halves of the Oreos you didn’t use. Add the Oreos to your frosting and mix with a knife.
Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting. Frost carefully and then add 1/2 of an Oreo for decoration on top.
