The name of these Oreo cupcakes says it all. They combine a classic cookie with chocolate cupcake goodness for quite possibly the perfect dessert.
Who here wants a really great Oreo Cupcake??
*All hands raised!*
I'm absolutely crazy about Oreos. One of my very first desserts as a blogger was an Oreo cake that called for 108 Oreos! Seriously. I'm nuts over these cookies. So when I saw this Cookies and Cream fudge, I was drooled over it for weeks and knew I'd have to make another major Oreo treat very, very soon.
Here's my philosophy about Oreo treats: the chunkier, the better. I cringe when I see cakes and cupcakes claiming to be "Cookies and Cream," with a sprinkling of tiny crumbs. It's just so wrong.
Oreo cookies were meant to be enjoyed in big pieces. You should get a big chocolate and cream filled bite when you crunch into one!
That's why I made these cupcakes the way I did: with an entire Oreo layer on the bottom of a chocolate chocolate chip cupcake, smothered in a decadent butter cream with big chunks of Oreos mixed in - and a few more big chunks on the top.
This, my friends, is an Oreo Cupcake with character. There are no teeny, tiny crumbs here. It's not messing around. This is a cupcake for the big kids.
