The best chocolate cake has collided with one of the best cookies – Oreos! The cake alone is amazing, but the frosting is outrageous! Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes and Cookies and Cream Frosting are a match made in heaven!
This is such an easy cupcake recipe. There is no reason to buy a cake mix when chocolate cake from scratch is this easy and this scrumptious! Toss in some chopped Oreos for a little something special, and swirl on a generous portion of Oreo frosting, and you will be in cupcake heaven, friend!
I made these cupcakes for a birthday party, so I added some edible bling to make them fancy. That part is totally optional but who doesn’t love a fancy cupcake?
Things are starting to settle down around here. We moved into our new house a week ago (our second move in 2 weeks) and I’m making some progress in the unpacking department.
This house is quite a bit larger than our last house, and we need to buy a lot of furniture to fill it up and make it look like someone actually lives here 🙂 I also need to do some decorating. I need help in this area…any takers?? I have some awesome ideas, but I don’t know how to execute them. In my head it’s amazing, but I don’t know how to bring my ideas to life. And then there are rooms that I just have no clue how to arrange and decorate. Someone please come help me!! 🙂 Would any of you be interested in seeing before and after photos as I tackle each room? Or maybe I will share a photo of how a room looks now and some of you brilliant decorators can tell me what to do! yes?
Anyway, back to the cupcakes. If you never make cupcakes from scratch, please try these! They seriously are so simple, and there’s nothing quite like a homemade cupcake – especially if it’s slathered in Oreo frosting! This frosting is not your usual too sweet buttercream. Part of the butter is replaced with cream cheese, and there’s just a pinch of salt to keep this luscious frosting from being too sweet. Swirl in some crushed cookies and you have the perfect compliment to the chocolate Oreo cupcakes!
