Okay, so I have to start off by saying you HAVE to try this recipe. I mean, seriously, you HAVE TO! I found this recipe on Pinterest, yet again. I had seen a ton of Oreo/cookies and cream cupcakes, non of which really screamed out to me until I found this one. It even boasts to be the best, and as far as I am concerned, it is.
First off, it already calls for boxed cake mix (which we all know I LOVE!), but it has you add pudding mix and sour cream which I never would have thought of. It definitely results in an insanely moist and tasty cake! The recipe is super easy to follow and I loved the touch of adding the crushed Oreos into the batter. It adds that little something extra when you take that first bite. I saw many eyes widen when they realized they were inside as well.
Can we talk about the frosting? I have seriously never had/made a frosting quite like this one and it safe to say I AM OBSESSED! It is light, fluffy, creamy, and everything you want in a frosting. It has cool whip in the recipe which is a major player in the whole light and fluffy result. I even went the extra mile to add the half of the Oreo and Oreo dust on top after I had piped the frosting on.
To say these were my own personal masterpieces is an understatement. They literally were gone in HOURS! A whole 24 I might add. My usual round of taste testers could NOT get enough of these and continued to sing the praises of this recipe. I’m sure I’m going to be required to make these quite often in the future. I have already had a couple of requests! I said it before, but I will say it again. MAKE THESE CUPCAKES! You will not be disappointed!
‘Till next time!
