Introduction: Cookies N Cream

Picture of Cookies N Cream


Dark chocolate cake, whole oreo cookie baked into the top, vanilla buttercream mixed with crushed oreos..As you bite into the cupcake, you can see a layer of cookie under the icing

Line cupcake tins with papers and place one oreo cookie in the bottom of each tin.  Fill 3/4 way with chocolate cake batter (any chocolate box mix works perfectly or I love Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake recipe).  The cookies will float to the top.  Bake according to box or recipe, normally around 15-18 minutes.  Once cooled, ice with recipe below:

Oreo Buttercream

Whip 2 sticks of butter until light and fluffy, gradually mix in 2 1/2 c powdered sugar.  Once thoroughly mixed, add in 1 cup crushed oreos (just the cookie side, separate the whites..i sometimes add a handful of the separated whites to the buttercream to give it a more oreo taste.)  Mix in 2 tsp vanilla.

Once piped, decorate with oreo chunks or half a cookie as pictured.

Hiya, just wondering do you know how many grams is in a stick of butter? We don't really have 'sticks' here, we just have big blocks with gram measurements on the side :) Thanks!

A stick of butter is 113g Racheyo
An OZ is 28.5g

1 cup = 16 tablespoons
¾ cup = 12 tablespoons
½ cup = 8 tablespoons
¼ cup = 4 tablespoons
2 thirds cup = 10 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons
3 eighths cup = 6 tablespoons
1 eighth cup = 2 tablespoons
1 sixth cup = 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons
1 sixteenth cup = 1 tablespoon
2 cups = 1 pint
2 pints = 1 quart
1 quart = 4 cups
3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon
48 teaspoons = 1 cup
1 pinch = less than 1 eighth teaspoon
1 dash = 3 drops to ½ teaspoons
2 tablespoons = 1 oz
1 cup (AUS) = 250mls
1 tablespoon (AUS) = 20mls
1 teaspoon (AUS) = 5mls
1 cup (USA) = 237mls
1 tablespoon (USA) = 15mls
½ cup (USA) = 118mls
1 teaspoon (USA) = 5mls
1 pound (USA) = 454g
454 grams = 16oz
1 kilo = 2.2 lbs
1oz = 28.5 grams
3oz = 85 grams
stick of butter = 113grams

Each stick is 4 ounces--total 1/2 lb or 1 cup of butter! (That's a LOT, almost 1/4 kilo.) Usually I make frosting with half a stick, and I think if I make these I'll stick with that ratio and add a little milk. Great recipe though, wonderful for a potluck. Thanks Kristen!

its a converter for weights and measures, and seems to be legit for most everything, grms vs oz`s and such.
