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<br>An OZ is 28.5g<br><br>1 cup = 16 tablespoons<br>&frac34; cup = 12 tablespoons<br>&frac12; cup = 8 tablespoons<br>&frac14; cup = 4 tablespoons<br>2 thirds cup = 10 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons<br>3 eighths cup = 6 tablespoons<br>1 eighth cup = 2 tablespoons<br>1 sixth cup = 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons<br>1 sixteenth cup = 1 tablespoon<br>2 cups = 1 pint<br>2 pints = 1 quart<br>1 quart = 4 cups<br>3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon<br>48 teaspoons = 1 cup<br>1 pinch = less than 1 eighth teaspoon<br>1 dash = 3 drops to &frac12; teaspoons<br>2 tablespoons = 1 oz<br>1 cup (AUS) = 250mls<br>1 tablespoon (AUS) = 20mls<br>1 teaspoon (AUS) = 5mls<br>1 cup (USA) = 237mls<br>1 tablespoon (USA) = 15mls<br>&frac12; cup (USA) = 118mls<br>1 teaspoon (USA) = 5mls<br>1 pound (USA) = 454g<br>454 grams = 16oz<br>1 kilo = 2.2 lbs<br>1oz = 28.5 grams<br>3oz = 85 grams<br>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!
http://www.traditionaloven.com/conversions_of_measures/butter_converter.html<br><br>its a converter for weights and measures, and seems to be legit for most everything, grms vs oz`s and such.
