Oreo Cupcakes


By now you know my thing for Oreos.  I made these twice in the last month.  They were that good.  Since the cake is vanilla and not chocolate you can really taste the crushed Oreos in the cake.

We are having a busy weekend starting on Friday with a wedding down the shore for a girl our family has known for over 20 years.  She was like a 5th daughter when the girls were growing up. She lived across the street from us and she only had brothers to play with so she was always coming over to play girl things.  We wish her and her fiancee the best in their new life together.  We are also having our annual Father's Day Picnic which we have had for 35 years now.  We are so lucky to both have our fathers still with us and both living so close to us. The weather should be beautiful for both occasions and I am looking forward to an exciting weekend.        

Ingredients:
1 box of vanilla cake mix plus ingredients to make cake
1 package regular Oreos or double stuff Oreos
1 package mini Oreos
2-1/2 cups whipping cream
6 tbsp confectioners sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 2 cupcake pans with 24 cupcake liners.  Place regular sized Oreo in the bottom of each cupcake liner.


Prepare cake mix according to directions on box.  Crush balance of regular Oreos in a food processor or blender or place in plastic ziplock bag and roll with a rolling pin.  Add to prepared cake mix.


Pour into prepared pans and bake 15-18 minutes.  Test cake with toothpick in center to see if done.
While cupcakes are cooling prepare frosting.  Beat whipping cream and confectioners sugar until stiff peaks form.  Save 24 mini Oreos for the top of the cupcakes and crush the rest of the bag in the food processor or blender.  Blend crushed Oreos with spatula into whipped cream mixture.  With piping bag frost cupcakes.  Add mini Oreo on top of frosting on each cupcake.  

Enjoy!  Susan
