For some reason the oreos stuck to the cupcake cups.
a must try out recipe
i dont fully understand. Do you put an oreo on the top also or scrape off the cream and use this for the frosting? Sorry to sound silly!!
This is the Hershey's chocolate cake recipe on the can of cocoa powder! It's one of my favorite choc cake recipes.
I dont think we can get that here in England, but i just found the recipe for the oreo buttercream so I think i'v figured it out now.
This sounds VERY yummy. How many cupcakes does this make up?
I made these yesterday and got 12 easily from half of the mix. They were very nice and very chocoloty!! Had to change things slightly because here in UK couldnt get the same things easily. Couldnt get double stuff oreos just regular and just regular cocoa and used melted butter in place of the veg oil, but they were fine. I made buttercream with crushed up oreos for the topping. Looked a little grey but tasted good. Think next time I might add a bit of food colour to make them look more appetizing.
@Norasmom - next time try putting a small amount of batter in the cupcake liner first then drop the Oreo on top of that and finish filling your cupcake liner. I like it better this way because the Oreo is more in the middle when you bite into the cupcake. @mo63 - you use the uncreamed part of the cookie to crunch up into the Oreo buttercream recipe. @jazycakes - I think it made about 24 cupcakes. Thanks everyone for trying/looking and commenting.
I made these for a staff function and everyone raved about them, said they were the best cupcakes they ever tasted. I ran out of Oreo cookies for the last 6 cupcakes so i used homemade chocolate chip cookies and they were also amazing.
Is there a way to replace with cocoa powder with melted chocolate?
replace the cocoa powder with melted chocolate*
Great cupcakes (and who doesn't like Oreos??!). The recipe made 3 dozen cupcakes for me. I made one pan where I put the Oreos in the cupcake liner first, then I made another pan where I put a little batter in first, then the Oreo, then more batter. Both ways came out fine (I never had the Oreo stick to the liner). I may like method 2 a little better simply because the Oreo rose to the middle of the cupcake, putting a little bit of Oreo in each bite! Will definitely make again!
@m063: A hint on the icing would be to barely mix in the oreos. The icing will definitely turn grey if you mix it in too well. I also used only about half of the leftover Oreos.
i made these for my daughters ice skating class, everyone loved them, had a few say 'this may be one of the best cupcakes i've ever had'....want to do them with peanut butter cookies next time...
