Oreo Cupcakes

Tomorrow is the last day of summer school. I thought I'd be thrilled but I am actually a little sad! I had the BEST class. Better than any class I have had at real school. Doesn't hurt that there were only 7 of them too! They were all sweet and cute and tried hard. But you didn't come here to read about my profession... so on to the cupcakes! I wanted to bring them in a treat for the last day and decided to go with a cupcake recipe. I had seen this recipe before and decided to adapt it a little bit. These came out excellent. It was my first time piping the icing and it went ok. Some definitely came out better than others. My best friend, Tiff, was over to help me make these things and we both agreed they were delicious and fun. The best part? The Oreo baked into the bottom!

Inspired by: Culinary Infatuation

1 box of white cake mix, prepared by the directions on the box (I used 1 can of diet Sprite and the box to make it less calories)
1 box of double stuffed Oreos
Frosting (I used store bought but homemade would work!)

1- Preheat the oven to 350. Line 2 cupcake pans with liners.
2- Break 24 Oreo cookies apart, trying to keep all of the filling on one side. Place the cookies filling side up in the center of each liner.

3- Place the tops of the Oreo cookies in a bag and crush until they form crumbs. Toss about 1/2-1 cup of the crumbs in with the batter, stir well to combine.
4- Fill the liners 3/4 of the way.
5- Bake according to the package, about 15 minutes.
6- Allow to cool. Frost the cupcakes and top with remaining crumbs and/or halves of Oreos.
