Death By Oreo Cupcakes

Picture of Death By Oreo Cupcakes
They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor. So, in this recipe there is Oreo's in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That's right, you put a whole Oreo at the bottom of the cake. The cookie stays firm, which makes it a little interesting to eat against the soft cake, but it actually gave a really yummy crunch. Overall this is an amazing cake. Super full of flavor and so fun!! Enjoy :)
Estimated Cooking Time: About 25 to 30 minutes

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 (or according to box directions). 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.

How much cupcakes can I make with this recipe?

I made these for my daughters graduation party. Everyone loved them. I did not put the cookie on the bottom, i just mixed them in with the batter.

It would of tasted better with the ores at the bottom. (Not hating) ??

Hi, i have stupid question. What "1 package Oreo Cookies, regular size" means? Like, how many oreos i need? Im fom diffrent county and we have packages with 4, 8, 16 cookies :D

Oreouk ssmyl9 months ago

The 'Regular size' line is about the size of the oreos, not the size of the packet, to distinguish from the mini Oreos being used for decoration. In the US Oreos are almost always sold in packs of about 45, but for over here I would recommend 2 packs with 16 cookies in because a regular batch of cake mix would probably make about 16 cupcakes once you accounted for the fact the cookie in the base displaces some of the mix. You would need the second pack to grind up for inclusion in the cake mix and the icing (though the implication now I reread the above is that they are using all 45 in this, so you might want 3 packs and see how it looks as you go along).

These were AMAZING!

I love Oreos.. and I love cupcakes.... gonna need new pants after this.... thank you

Hey, these are amazing!
You might want to edit your explanation. Cakes and Oreos are plural, not possessive, so they should not have apostrophes. Just sayin'.
Everyone loved these, by the way.
OMG!!! Looks amazing!

Death by Oreo, or any other cupcake, is a sad, but tasty way to go.
I've made these before. they are super yummy. Also try mixing crushed oreo's w/ cream cheese. roll into quarter sized balls and chill in the fridge. Easy and popular treat for parties.

My icing came out too sweet, I'm wondering if I read the recipe wrong. Is it 3 and 3/4 cup powdered sugar or 3 x 3/4 cup powdered sugar?
