Cookies 'n Cream Cupcakes

Chocolate Cupcakes:
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) box of Devil's Food cake mix
  • 1 (5.9 ounce) box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake tray with paper liners or spray with non-stick spray.
  2. In the bowl of a stand-up mixer (or in a large bowl, with an electric mixer), combine all the ingredients and beat for about two minutes on medium speed, until smooth.
  3. Distribute the batter between the cupcake liners, approximately 3 tablespoons each.
  4. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until the tops spring back when you touch them lightly with your finger. 
  5. Allow to cool completely.
*Makes approx 30 cupcakes.

Cookies 'n Cream Frosting
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 - 2 lbs. powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 12 Oreos, crushed
  1. Cream the butter with an electric mixer until light. Add in the vanilla, and mix until smooth. 
  2. Add the powdered sugar in batches until you reach your desired consistency, then add in milk and fold in the crushed Oreos. 
  3. Frost cupcakes with a pastry bag. I topped each cupcake with a mini oreo.
It's chocolate cake. And there are Oreo's in the frosting. 
Of course they were amazing.
