I made a Oreo Cupcakes with Cookies & Cream Frosting for a friend’s birthday.  We went with minis and instead of cream filling, I added an extra Oreo into the middle.  This makes for 3 layers of Oreo- Oreo in the middle, Oreo in the frosting and Oreo on top.  Oh yes!!!

Makes 60 mini cupcakes


Oreo Cupcakes

  • 1 package mini Oreos
  • 1 box dark chocolate cake mix
  • 1 3.4 oz (small) box instant dark chocolate pudding
  • 3/4 C milk
  • 3/4 C vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs

Cookies & Cream Frosting

  • 2 8oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
  • 1 C butter, softened

Heat oven to 350.  Line cupcake pans.

Combine cake mix and instant pudding.  Add milk, oil and eggs.  Mix well.

Fill cupcake wrapper 2/3 full and set a mini Oreo in the middle.  Don’t overfill, these will rise as they bake.

Bake about 14 minutes, 7 minutes on the lower rack and 7 minutes on the upper.  Cupcakes are done when a toothpick comes out clean.  Set aside to cool.

While cupcakes are baking, make frosting.

For Cookies & Cream Frosting, use stand or hand mixer to combine butter and cream cheese until fluffy.  Add vanilla and powdered sugar in 1C increments.

Finely chop or crush 18 regular Oreos.  A food processor can be helpful.  You could also to put under wax paper and crush with a rolling pin.  With mixer on low, add Oreo pieces to frosting.  Transfer frosting into a piping bag.

Pipe Cookies & Cream Frosting on cupcakes.  Set mini Oreos on top.  Add sprinkles.
