The holidays are a great reason to break out the dessert recipes and show the people in your life you appreciate them.
I am in dire need of a haircut and my barber is not only my barber but a friend. He came to celebrate baby girl’s birthday, as we also attend his girls’ parties and he always offers any help should i need it because he knows D is away and his wife and him don’t live very far from us. He is really just a good person. Anywho, when he was at baby girl’s birthday he ravedddd about the cupcakes, and i have lots of cake mix. when i say lots i have LOTS. i can’t help it, they’ve been on sale and i have coupons and one can never have too much cake mix in their house, so i have stocked up. (Actually i’ve stocked up on a lot of things, i’ll do a post on my couponing stockpile later)… But yea i have lots of cake mix and i felt like baking.
& these super fancy sounding cupcakes are actually super easy!
All you need is white or vanilla cake mix and oreos (and whatever eggs/water/oil your box calls for.) (Unless you want to be really fancy and make your mix from scratch then be my guest)
I like to put a half an oreo in the bottom of each cupcake liner and them crumble a bunch of oreos in the actual batter.
(its easiest to crumble the oreos in a ziploc bag, without the cream filling. I normally just scrape the cream off with a butter knife and add it to the oreos in the liner that are lacking)
The mix made about 18 cupcakes and not counting the oreos in the bottom, i used about 9 oreos in the mix. You could always use more/less, whatever your pretty little self desires.
Then I like to frost mine with chocolate frosting.
It’s a pretty simple process but i included some pics of mine if you wanted to see what it looks like.
