Death by Oreo Cupcakes

Just before Christmas, I came across a recipe here for Death by Oreo Cupcakes .  My family really wanted me to make them, but in all the Christmas rush, I simply didn’t have time then.  My daughter ever so sweetly reminded me last weekend that we STILL hadn’t tried the recipe, so off we went to the store to get the ingredients.

Oh my goodness, these cupcakes were so delicious…almost an Oreo overload!  An Oreo on the bottom, Oreos in the cake batter and the cream cheese frosting…then garnished with a mini Oreo. 

I did notice the mini Oreos were the tiniest bit soft where they sat in the frosting, so I would suggest not garnishing the cupcakes until right before serving them.
