Mini Oreo Cupcakes
Hi, I’m Tara! I wanted to share these yummy Mini Oreo Cupcakes and Kristen mentioned I should start blogging all the yummy things I bake. So I am!
The First time I made the cupcakes was for my boyfriend Andrew’s Birthday. They were a hit! So I made them again for Tony. Easy gift, HA HA!
Preheat Oven to 350°F
1. The Ingredients
- 1 pkg chocolate cake mix
- 1 pkg cream cheese, softened (8 oz)
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp sugar (30 ml)
- 1 (8oz) Bag of bite size Oreo cookies (Maybe 2 See #6)
- 8oz Container of Cool Whip
- (Don’t forget the ingredients for the cake mix you get)
2. Cupcake Batter & Filling
Follow the directions on the back of the cake mix. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, egg, and sugar to make the filling.
3. Cupcake layer & Surprise filling
Spoon half the cake batter into the lined cupcake pan. Then spoon about 1-1/2tsp. of the Cream Cheese filling on top of the batter.
4. Make that surprise extra Yummy
Add one Oreo on top of the filling to each cupcake. Make sure it sits flat and is in the center.
5. Cover your surprise
Add the rest of the batter to your cupcake. Make sure to cover them fully. Almost to the top.
Bake 19 to 22 minutes or until your toothpick is clean. Remove and cool on a wired rack.
6. Make frosting
This is where I altered a little from the linked recipe. It calls for just cool Whip. However, I added the extra Oreo crumbles to the cool Whip. We don’t want to waste any of them little guys. I even use a little from the extra bag to give the frosting a little more color and flavor.
7. Add frosting (Sorry about the picture)
I normally add the frosting to a zip-lock and cut a corner to make it pretty and it’s much easier. After cupcakes cool completely, add frosting and top with an Oreo! Eeep!!
Put in Refrigerator and wait until cold.
Make sure to cut in half and take a photo – Just Kidding!
Eat and Enjoy!!
