Cookies-N-Cream Cupcakes – Take 2

After making Cookies-N-Cream cupcakes with my sister only a few weeks prior, I was still thinking about how they could be better and wanted to give them another shot.

Oh my goodness – these cupcakes are amazing. My hubby said they were the best thing I’ve ever made. Intern boy at work said they were the best baked good he had ever had. And I have to admit they’re pretty damn good. I think it’s the Oreo on the bottom that makes them so good.
Cookies-N-Cream Cupcakes – Take 2
(Recipe adapted from here, Original recipe from: Cupcakes! By the Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn)
24 paper liners for cupcake pans
30 Oreo cookies – I used Double-Stuffed
1 pkg plain white cake mix
1 cup sour cream – I used low-fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil – I used ¼ c oil and ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
3 large eggs – I used egg-beaters for 1 egg and 2 regular eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat your oven to 350 and line the pans with paper liners. Count out 12 Oreos and separate the top and bottom wafers. Make sure each half has some icing on it. Place one wafer, icing side up, in the bottom of each paper liner. (I had a hard time opening them and getting frosting on both sides, so I just put the side with frosting in the cupcake paper and put the other side in a bowl to crush and put in the batter).

Crush the remaining Oreos by any means you like. I put them in a Ziplock and smash them. Set the crumbs aside.

Place the cake mix, oil, sour cream, eggs and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and blend with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and beat again on medium about 1.5 minutes more. Measure out 1 1/2 cups crushed Oreos and fold these into the batter. Set the rest of the crumbs aside for garnish.

Fill your liners 3/4 full with batter and place the pans in the oven.

Bake the cupcakes for about 18-20 minutes until they are golden and spring back when lightly touched with your finger. Cool in the pan on wire racks for about 5 minutes and then remove cakes from pans and cool completely on wire racks.

Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting
I used frosting out of the freezer that I had from previous cupcakes. I stirred in some crushed Oreos and frosted cooled cupcakes. Garnish with Oreos.

    Was the consistency like ice cream? It sounds cool and summery. Plus you probably get super brownie points for submitting so early!

    The texture isn’t quite as creamy as ice cream… It’s more frozen than that(?) They are really good though!

    I know this post is like a year old, but I followed a link from another page and found it. Question – do you have to keep them frozen until serving? We’re going to a pool party, so they might be outside for a while. Will they melt?

    If I remember correctly, they will melt. They might be fine for a little while, but not all afternoon. Sorry I can’t be more help!
