In this instructable, I will show you how to make cookies and cream cupcakes.
Step 1: Ingredients
For this recipe you will need:
3 c all purpose flour
1 1/2 c buttermilk
1 1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 c warm water
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c veg oil
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp baking soda
Step 2: In the Beginning...
First, using the electric mixer, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Step 3: Then..
Now add the eggs, buttermilk, water, oil and vanilla until everything is mixed together.
Step 4: Now...
Spray your cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray, or line with cupcake liners and fill each about half-way.
Step 5: Bake!
Bake in an oven that's been preheated to 350° for about 20 minutes, or until you can stick a fork/toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.
Step 6: In the Meantime..
While your cupcakes are cooling down, you can make the frosting.
For the frosting, you will need:
1 16 oz bag of powdered sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 c whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c butter, softened
Step 7: Grab the Mixer Again.
Using the electric mixer, beat the butter for a couple of minutes.
Step 8: Now..
Add a little of the powdered sugar and cream, alternating between the two until everything is mixed together.
Step 9: Almost There...
Now mix in the vanilla and salt.
Step 10: Fun Times!
Put the oreos in a ziplock bag and crush.
Step 11: Leave the Mixer Out of This..
Stir the cookies into the frosting.
Step 12: Dress It Up!
Frost the cupcakes.
You can then cut an oreo in half to place on top of each cupcake.
