Oreo Cupcakes...for your sweethearts.

This cupcake is sure to win over your sweetheart. From the crunchy cookie bottom, moist cake and the rich oreo frosting....you just cannot go wrong! Put this recipe on your MUST try list. :) {Just don't count the calories}

Preheat oven to 350. Mix packaged cake mix according to directions but do not bake yet. Line your cupcake tins with liners and place a regular size oreo cookie in the bottom of each one. {yum}.


Coarsely chop half of the remaining cookies and add to cake mix.
Fill the cupcake tins. Bake for 15 min or until done. While cupcakes are baking make the frosting.

FROSTING
Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla, then add powdered sugar slowly until blended well. Chop remaining regular-sized Oreos very fine. Add to frosting. When cupcakes are cool frost and decorate with a few mini oreos on top. {mini oreos optional}
1 package oreos ~ regular size
1 package mini oreos {for decoration}
1 package chocolate cake mix~ follow directions on the box
8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
8 Tbsp butter at room temperature
3 3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
cupcake liners

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend....don't forget to say hi and let me know you stopped by!! :)
