Death By Oreo Cupcakes

Martha Stewart

A warm welcome! This beautiful centerpiece is for all of us to enjoy. 



I'm joining Rattlebridge Farm for the return of the Mystery Ingredient Club. All the hearts and flowers and chocolates, Valentine's Day is fun to share with anyone special in your life. Not a year goes by when we don't have chocolate on Valentine's Day which is also our wedding anniversary. A friend of my mom's made cupcakes for a birthday party, and I fell in love with them. They will be enjoyed by all my special Valentines.  ❤ ❤




Ingredients:
1 package Oreo Cookies, regular size
1 package Mini Oreo Cookies, for decoration (optional)
1 package chocolate cake mix (mix according to directions on box)
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temperature
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
cupcake liners

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix packaged cake mix according to directions (do not bake). Line cupcake tins with liner, place a regular size Oreo cookie in the bottom of each liner. Take 1/2 of remaining cookies and chop coarsely and add to cake mix. Fill the cupcake tins. Bake for 15 minutes. While cupcakes are baking make the frosting.

Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla, then add powdered sugar slowly until blended well. Chop remaining regular-sized Oreos very fine (I put the cookies in the food processor instead of trying to chop them up super fine and it worked out really well). Add to frosting. After cupcakes have cooled frost and decorate with Mini Oreos. The recipe made 24 cupcakes.
