Oreo Cupcake Recipe

Do you love Oreos?  I have a cupcake recipe with a surprise Oreo inside for you to try!  These cupcakes are perfect for a birthday party or any type of party.  You can create different flavor options by just changing the type of Oreo you buy.  So easy! 
I had originally found this recipe on Pinterest  when I was looking at all types of Oreo cupcake recipe options and decided to give it a shot. 
My family ended up really enjoying it and I have made it a couple times since originally trying it.  They enjoyed this new way of using Oreo’s and I am excited to try new Oreo cupcake recipes in the different flavors. 
If you don’t have time to put together the recipe as I have listed, you could easily use a white cake mix and just mix Oreo’s into the batter.  Use a Vanilla canned frosting a sprinkle Oreo’s on top.

    Oh my these look so yummy! I don't really like oreos on their own, but I love them in things like ice cream & cake. These would hit the spot for sure.

    Oh, you little stinker. That was you?!?! I quickly glanced through the thumbnails before I had to head out to school to pick-up my son and this pic caught my eye. I had to click to see who thought of such a yummy treat. Why am I not surprised it is you!!! These are a must-do this weekend, for sure!!!! Thanks for linking up and link up some more. You've had great ones!

    Hello! I found these on pinterest, and usually there are comments that it looks great, but no comments on the taste! So, I decided to make these since we had extra oreos on hand. These did not turn out good. We ended up throwing it all out. :o/ I did not put the topping on them though, so this review is without the frosting.

    Your cupcakes are the best ones I’ve tried!
    I always bake them whenever we have a gathering/parties at home. (I’ve been using your recipe since last year)
    I noticed you changed some parts of the recipe.
    Can you please post the recipe for the vanilla frosting again? :)
