Easy Oreo Cupcakes - The First Year Blog

I set out to find the easiest oreo cupcake recipe, and I think I found it!

Easy Oreo Cupcakes - The First Year Blog

1 box of white cake mix (plus all of the ingredients listed on the back, usually water, egg, & oil)
1 package of Oreos
1 container of frosting (choose your favorite, but preferably white in color so the Oreo pieces are visible!)

I got 20 regular sized cupcakes from this recipe.

Preheat the oven according to the directions on the cake mix box. Next, prepare the cake mix as directed. Crush or chop (I used my slap chop and it works miracles) 14 Oreos and gently mix them into the batter.

Place cupcake liners in the pan. Next, twist as many Oreos as you have cupcake liners in half. Place the half with cookie AND cream on it in the bottom of each cupcake. The other halves (without cream) will be used in the frosting. Fill each cupcake about half full with batter (they really plump up). Bake as directed on the cake mix box.

While their baking, prep the frosting. Empty 1 container of frosting into a bowl. Chop the other halves of the Oreos you didn’t use, if you want to add more Oreos to the frosting, go ahead! Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting. There are many options to garnishing this cupcake.. just frosting, frosting with half an Oreo on top, or frosting with Oreo crumbs on top!

    These looks awesome. My kids love oreo anything– I have a recipe for cheesecake that uses an oreo as the crust. They asked for these cheesecakes as their birthday cake for several years. It still is the first dessert they ask for so I think I am going to have to give these a try. All your recipes sound so good!

    Thanks for stopping by my giveaway….good luck!
