Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

So maybe you’re thinking, “Annie, don’t you already have a delicious Oreo cupcake recipe on the blog?”  Yes, you are correct.  But I have to ask you – can you really ever have too many Oreo cupcake recipes?  I didn’t think so.  This version is quite different than the first Oreo cupcake recipe I posted.  That version has a chocolate cake base with an Oreo whipped cream frosting.  This one is a vanilla cake with lots of Oreo chunks mixed in, a light and fluffy cream cheese frosting, and a surprise half Oreo at the bottom of the cupcake.

Both versions are wonderful in their own way and I’m not sure which would win in a fight, but I do know that these are irresistible.  These were another coworker birthday choice, and even though I didn’t think anything would ever top the chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes, I think these are the new favorite for many people.  Personally I loved the big chunks of Oreo throughout the cake, and the Oreo half at the bottom was hugely popular with all who tried them.

If you’re a skilled Oreo-twister, you may be better than I am at getting all of the cream filling off onto one side of the cookie.  I prefer to speed up the process by using a small paring knife to slice one half off leaving the filling attached to the other side.  You can use the remaining non-creamy Oreo halves for garnish if desired.  Personally, I require still-sandwiched Oreos for my garnish because they look and taste better.  For best results, garnish just before serving because the cookie on top will get a bit soft from the frosting (they still taste great though!)

Cookies and Cream Cupcakes
Printer-Friendly Version

Yield: 24 cupcakes
Ingredients:
For the cupcakes:
24 Oreo halves, with cream filling attached
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 2/3 cup sugar
3 large egg whites, at room temperature
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup milk
20 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped (I quarter them)

For the frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
2 tbsp. heavy cream

For garnish:
Oreo cookie crumbs
24 Oreo cookie halves

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.  Line the wells of two cupcake pans with 24 paper liners.  Place an Oreo halve in the bottom of each liner, cream side up.  In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir together with a fork to blend and set aside.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar and beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Blend in the egg whites one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Blend in the vanilla extract.  With the mixer on low speed, beat in half of the dry ingredients just until incorporated.  Add the milk and beat just until combined, then mix in the remaining dry ingredients.  Gently fold in the chopped Oreos with a rubber spatula until evenly incorporated, being careful not to over-mix.

Evenly divide the batter between the prepared cupcake liners.  Bake for 18-20 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through baking, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Allow to cool in the pans 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the frosting, combine the cream cheese and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on medium-high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.  Blend in the vanilla extract.  Beat in the confectioners’ sugar until incorporated and smooth, 1-2 minutes.  Add the heavy cream to the bowl and beat on medium-low speed just until incorporated, then increase the speed to medium-high and whip for 4 minutes until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Frost the cooled cupcakes as desired.  Sprinkle with Oreo crumbs and garnish with Oreo halves.

    Jenn

  15. What a wonderful treat. I wish you were my coworker.

  16. These are beautiful! I love the idea of the cookie on the bottom as the crust!

  17. Those look amazing! I might make these for my brother in law’s birthday in a few days. Thanks for the idea!

  18. You know what the unfrosted Oreo sides would be great for? Grinding up into cheesecake crusts.

    Anyway, yum. I like Oreos in desserts much more like I like them plain.

  19. What a beautiful cupcake! The half cookie on the bottom looks amazing when you cut it in half. I had to admit, oreo cupcakes down sound all that, until you see the picture, that is! They look positively scrumptious!!!

  20. Wow, those are decadent! You’ve got me definitely craving Oreos now! Those are cute cupcake liners too – Where do you get yours?

    • Georgia,
      A little bit of everywhere, but my favorite online places are Bake It Pretty, Layer Cake Shop, Confectionery House and Fancy Flours.

  21. nice! You can never have too many oreo recipes

  22. Yumm! Perfect timing too. I was looking for something to make for this weekend and these will be a huge hit.

    Where did you get those cupcake liners? I love how bright they are and it looks like they stayed that vibrant pink even after baking!! 🙂 I need some!

  23. OMG those look amazing!! I will have to make these bad boys, stat.

  24. OMG!!!annie..these are awesome!!:)im a student frm india n ur food inspires me!!!n the pictures are amazing too!!:)thank you soo much…i shud try these out as soon as possible:)

  25. Oh my, we would inhale those in one sitting around here.

  26. I made those “other” Oreo cupcakes you have posted for my twins birthday last year and they were a big hit. I will have to try these AFTER my brother-in-law makes your Oreo cheesecake you posted last week! Yum!

  27. That is such a great idea to use a half an oreo as the base! My mother-in-law makes a mini cheesecake that uses a Nilla Wafer as the base, also delcious! Can’t wait to put kids to work twistin’ oreos this summer:)

  28. I was going to skip right past this recipe, since I don’t bake stuff like this very often. But when I saw the pictures, I couldn’t resist going back and reading it! These cupcakes look fantastic!

  29. There is no such thing as too many cupcake recipes, especially when Oreos are involved! Yum!

  30. This looks SO good! I was intrigued by your previous Oreo cupcake recipe except for the fact that I’m not a huge fan of chocolate cake. Now I can try this one! I’ll post again after I’ve “road-tested” these. =) Thank you!

  31. I think I might have actually really and truly drooled a little when I saw the last photo! These look amazing. I think these will definitely be on the list for the next cupcake baking day!

  32. YUM! These look fabulous! Do you make everything in one evening or can one or more of the steps be completed a day ahead? I’d like to make these for an upcoming birthday at work.

  33. Just finished eating one.

    Those were yummy and sweet enough that one cupcake was all I needed. I still don’t know how you get your frosting to be thick. This is the second time I’ve tried one of the cream cheese frostings you’ve posted and although they were both good, they were too runny to decorate with. And I only used 1 tsp vanilla v. the 1 Tbsp called for. Next time, I’ll leave out the heavy cream and see if that helps at all….or maybe it’s because I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream…hmmmm I should read my labels more carefully.

    • Gwen, that’s too bad! I’ve made the frosting multiple times and have never had a problem. It definitely could be that you used half-and-half. The reason I added the heavy cream is that when the frosting is whipped on high speed, it takes on a lighter, airier texture than regular cream cheese frosting. I actually do that with a lot of my frostings. I don’t really think half-and-half would have the same result, but I’ve never tried it.

    • Hey Gwen, I had the same issue to, I ended up putting my frosting in a piping bag and then placed it in the fridge and it thickened up and it was much easier to frost.

  34. These look seriously dreamy!!!! YUM!! I am definitely trying these!! Thanks for all your other great recipes. I tried your strawberry cheesecake this past weekend and it was a huge hit! 🙂

  35. These look so fabulous and I love the half Oreo at the bottom!

  36. yum yum ,,
    I like your recipes ,,

    beutiful work 🙂

  37. These look awesome! I love cookies and cream anything!

  38. this recipe looks amazing, and i can’t wait to make them!..the chocolate chip cookie dough cupcake recipe (turned cake, in my case) was amazing and i’m not sure if these can top it, but i’m willing to make that sacrifice and try them anyway :)..also, just recently realized that you are a physician!..i am a second-year medical student who is currently studying for my usmle step 1 exam, and baking is a HUGE stress reliever for me..i’m sure you can relate!..thanks for providing a little spark of delicious happiness in my otherwise study-filled days. 🙂

  39. I love that there are chunks of Oreo in the batter! My kids will LOVE this recipe! Can’t wait to try it!

  40. Oh gah, you are so wrong for posting this one! I’m almost eight months pregnant and you know I could easily eat at least a dozen before I even blinked an eye!

  41. Oooh- I love Oreos. 🙂 These cupcakes look fabulous. It’s not possible to have too many oreo recipes- I still don’t have one for every day of the year yet, but I’m workin’ on it! Thanks for sharing.

  42. love the cookie on the bottom idea! def goign to try this recipe soon! thanks for sharing!

  43. Ohhhhhh! It’s creative, beautiful, and I love to try it. Thank you so much for the share, Annie 🙂

  44. I think I may try these…and I never try your baking recipes. Not because they don’t look AMAZING every time…but they are too complex for my simple baking skills. 🙂

    Love the look of this one…THANK YOU!

  45. I have made some similar to this and they are always a hit! I love the idea of taking the top off the cookie before sinking it 🙂

  46. It’s my 25th Birthday tomorrow and on saturday my friends and I are having a kids themed party, we all feel old what with all the ‘grown up’ decisions that we have to make these days lol so we decided to have some fun. I am definitely baking these along with all the other childhood favourites!

    Keep up the amazing work! xx

  47. Successful completion of this recipe! I took them to a Bible study and one guy ate three of them in a row. People were excited to see the Oreo cookie at the bottom, too.

    A couple of changes – I used lowfat buttermilk in place of the milk because my milk had gone bad (eek) and I used some of the leftover non-frosted cookie halves in place of some of the whole cookies in the cake itself as I couldn’t stand to see them all go to waste. The rest of the cookie halves were pulverized for garnish. Thank you for another great recipe!

  48. Oh boy those look good! You are a star 🙂

  49. These were the first GONE at the party last weekend!! Next time, no half batches! 😉

  50. Yum… I can imagine these being even more amazing with Mint Oreos!

  51. Oh Wow! These look really yummy. I definitely have to try this recipe 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  52. I made these for Mother’s Day and they were incredible!!

  53. The contrast between the pink and the black is just amazing. I love it! And cupcakes always tastes good of course 🙂 Have you tried Swedish cupcakes?

  54. I made this last night! I love the cupcake itself, but not my frosting. After an hour of brianracking as to why my frosting was soo runny, I realized I put way more butter into it than I should have. It tastes fine, so I guess that’s all that matters, but dangit! Thanks for the idea!

  55. Okay Annie, now you got me liking my screen! They are not only gorgeous, they also look irresistible! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  56. I think my favorite part is the bright pink liners with the black and white cupcakes….these look AMAZING, and I’m not even a cupcake fan.

  57. Oh. My. Word. These looks heavenly! I cannot wait to try them. Another great recipe from you Annie!

  58. Any chance you want to make these again on a slow birthday month? :oP

  59. What did I do wrong? The oreos at the bottom stuck to the liners. They were delightful besides that!

    • In my experience it has more to do with what type of liner you used than anything else. Some stick, some don’t.

  60. oh no! these look dangerous!:o)

  61. Hi Annie-

    I have a kinda dumb question, but do the cupcakes have to be refrigerated because of the cream cheese in the frosting?

    • Amanda,
      That’s really your call but I always refrigerate any frosting with cream cheese in it.

  62. Annie,

    Yours look great as usual. As I mentioned, they’re definitely the cupcakes that get requested most often.

  63. I made these yesterday for my boyfriends birthday and they were a huge hit! LOVE oreo surprise at the bottom. Any tips on how to frost them to make them look like yours???

    • Hi Meghan,
      I just used a pastry bag fitted with a plain round tip (it is not labeled with a sizing number).

  64. I just made these tonight and they are so incredibly rich and sweet! The only difference was, I used the Golden Double Stuffed oreos. Mmmm, thank you for coming up with this, you are amazing!<3

  65. Hey Annie, thinking about making these cupcakes as a 2 layer cake. Thoughts? Would there be enough batter? Would this be too sweet? Oreos are my nephew’s fave. thanks!

    • Ariana,
      I am definitely one for whom the phrase “too sweet” has no meaning, so I’m not the best judge of that. But as logistics go, I’m not sure the batter would be enough. I think the cakes would probably be pretty thin. I would increase it by maybe 50%, if not just double it to be on the safe side (though you would probably end up with extra that way.) Good luck!

  66. Love your site and recipe choices! I’ve made several of these cupcakes and desserts and all have been a hit with my fam.

    I’ve been working on a churro cupcake, but haven’t made something spectacular just yet. I’d love to see you carry the torch and develop something to knock our socks off… Just a little food for thought! 😉

  67. I’ve got a cupcake question! When I bake cupcakes from scratch, they taste awesome but many pull away from the liner…and don’t look so pretty. When I bake cupcakes from a mix, they don’t pull away at all….but they don’ t taste very good. What gives? I have some amazing recipes and I’m tired of throwing away 1/4 – 1/3 of each batch because of the liner issue. HELP!

    • To be honest, I think it has everything to do with each individual cake recipe and also the liners you are using. That said, I’ve never had a problem with the cake pulling away from the liners and I make cupcakes from scratch all the time.

  68. I made these cupcakes except I changed the frosting and my family and bofriends co workers loved them. I’m at home with an injury and they tell me they don’t care I only have my left arm, they want more cupcakes. Thanks for the base recipe. Can’t wait to try the cookie dough ones, in a little over a month. I miss baking so much

  69. I also looked for ideas in your comments about what to do with runny frosting. I didn’t want to add more powdered sugar just yet and since it’s about 95 degrees outside and I don’t have central air I decided to put it in the freezer for a bit. (luckily I baked them the other day when it was cooler in the morning) Turned out that’s all it needed. 20 minutes later it was still a little soft but worked just fine using a small spatula. So in case anyone else has a problem with the frosting maybe this will help them too!
    Oh, I almost forgot…these are the most AMAZING cupcakes I have EVER had!! Thanks for the recipe!!

  70. These hands down re a must try if you like oreos! They came out beautifully and taste amazing. I was a little doubtfull because the batter was chock full of oreos but all doubts were laid aside with one heavenly bite.

  71. I made these for my birthday last month and they were a total hit. They are chock full of oreos and an excellent balance for the chocolate-lover who doesn’t want a totally chocolate cake. So impressed with this recipe.

  72. I just randomly searched cookies and cream cupcakes and found your site. The recipe is amazing and I can’t wait to try so many more of your recipes! This site is great! Thanks for making it free =)

  73. I made these cupcakes the other day and the response was overwhelmingly amazing. Everyone said they were like heaven in a cupcake! Definitely a new new top!

    p.s. I love ALL your recipes! You’re the best!

  74. Hi Annie, I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVE your site and I’m so glad you took up baking. You inspire me in so many ways. I love every single one of your recipes! And these little devils are delicious.

  75. I made these last night and was cursing the high heavens and considering baking a new batch of cupcakes using a different recipe at 1AM because the cupcake liners stuck so badly to the oreos in the bottom of the cup. However, cooler heads prevailed (not mine) and this morning I was delighted to discover that with adequate cooling time, the liners do indeed come off. So, let those puppies cool for at least 6 hours or so before you try to remove the cupcake liners. The cake is light with a nice crumb and not squishy moist. The icing is insane. Huge hit at the office. Will make these again. Thanks for the recipe!

  76. SUCH CUTE CUPCAKES. I like you and a cupcake FANATIC. I love making cupckaes. Although, I am not as adventerous as you or as creative as you are. So I highly admire your talent 🙂
    I have a quick question. When I make my cupcakes, the wraper always comes loose after they have cooled. How do I make them not do that? Is it becuase I am using a cake mix from a box? I wonder if I made my own mix from scratch if it would do still do that. LOVE LOVE LOVE your cupcakes. Im gonna try it tonight. They look delish 🙂

    • Kristy, I think it’s probably something to do with the cake recipe and the type of liners you use. That being said, I’ve never had that problem with the liners and I make all kinds of cupcakes in all kinds of liners all the time. I’m not sure there is a clear answer.

  77. Brought these to work today and everyone is raving! Such a great recipe; you’re the best!

  78. how would i calculate how much of each ingredient i would use i wanted to make 12 instead of 24 cupcakes?

  79. Oh god you’re killing me here. I have to stop browsing through your archives.

  80. Came across your blog while looking for the perfect oreo cupcakes to make this weekend for the younger guests and I think I’ve found it!:) Just one question, are the cup and tablespoon measures in US or metric? I’m from Australia and only have metric measures but I’ve been baking from a lot of US sites lately that require conversions before I can get baking!

  81. I made these cupcakes last night, they came out GREAT! 🙂 I just stumbled upon your website the other day and I am already addicted! You have such great ideas and such wonderful recipes. Thanks for this great cupcake recipe! I loved them and many other people did too!

  82. Annie,
    these may be the BEST cupcakes I have ever made or eaten! I didn’t do the cream cheese icing though because these had to spend a couple hours out of the refrigerator at a graduation party. I just made a regular buttercream icing instead. I had SO many compliments on these and I directed everyone to your blog. I’m an avid follower and I’m afraid my husband has a foodie crush on you!
    Thank you so much for your blog. Your recipes are amazing and easy to follow!

  83. I wanted cookies ‘n cream cupcakes for a bake sale I was having at my job to raise money for our Walk Now for Autism Speaks team. I did a google search and, after viewing MANY recipes and photos, I decided on yours. Your recipes seem very straight-forward and your pics are great. I made three types of cupcakes – coconut, chocolate/peanut butter, and these. These were the first to go! The bake sale was three hours long – these cupcakes were gone within thirty minutes. I had co-workers upset with me, because the cookies ‘n cream cupcakes were gone before they got any! I was worried the frosting would taste too cream cheesey, but it’s not a lot of cream cheese and the frosting is very light, which I loved. I refrigerated them for a few minutes and then stuck a whole oreo in the frosting of each one, as a garnish. The recipe was easy and the end result was delicious. Thank you for sharing!

  84. to anyone wondering if this recipe makes enough batter for an 8 inch layer cake, it does! i used the recipe as is to make a birthday cake for one of my friends, and the layers were plenty thick enough. i filled the layers with the oreo whipped cream filling from annie’s cookies ‘n cream cake and frosted it with the cream cheese frosting, and it was DELICIOUS! my only complaint was with the cream cheese frosting – it was super runny and would NOT stick to my cake. i only got it to work after much refrigeration (and frustration). the frosting was still yummy, but next time i will probably use a standard american buttercream or an italian meringue buttercream. thanks for another amazing recipe! 🙂

  85. My son and I were looking for a cupcake to bake for his 4th birthday. We had so much fun looking at all of your cupcakes and he chose these. They were to die for! All the moms at the party raved and wanted the recipe. The oreo at the bottom was a fun surprise for all! Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I’ll be trying your carrot cupcakes today for my sister’s birthday 🙂 I adore your blog…..

  86. I made these this summer (albeit with a different frosting) and it was a huge hit! Everyone loved them. Thank you so much for the recipe.

  87. Oh geez…these were soo cute that I made them for a friend. I had a recipe prior and they were good, however these were AMAZING..Before I used a buttercream oreo frosting on top of the oreo cupcake=diabetic coma..I like the cream cheese frosting with heavy cream, the heavy cream keeps it thick but light. THANK YOU THANK YOU…
    I am planning on baking a cake for a 80s themed party. Mario Cake actually..And I despise using all fondant on the cake..Do you think it would be ok to frost the cake in buttercream colored and stick on the fondant characters? Would they slide off? THANKS SOOO MUCH…you rock..

  88. I made these today. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Loved them!!!!

  89. Annie,

    I made these last week for work and everybody loved them! My husband asked if I could make some kind of Nilla Bannana pudding cupcakes, (nilla pudding is his favorite dessert) I was thinking of using this recipe and just replacing the oreos with Nilla wafers, maybe some bannana extract in the cake and bannana pudding filling. I think that would work but I have no clue what kind of frosting to use, this cream cheese frosting or the white chocolate whipped cream from that chocolate layer cake recipe with the strawberries? What do you think? Meringue maybe?
    I was thinking it would have to be light but also has to stand up to storage in the fridge overnight and still look pretty for “Cupcake Thursday” at work.
    -Becca

    • Becca,
      I don’t know, I think personally I would start with a banana cupcake base and not use this recipe. If you would like, I can play around with the concept and post when I have something that works. Let me know if you’d be interested. Heck, I may just do it anyway – that sounds delicious!

      • Annie-

        I would like to see what you come up with! I tried it today using your vanilla bean cupcakes and mixed in chunks of nilla wafers and banana to the batter, then filled them with banana creme pudding using the cone method. I messed up the white chocolate whipped creme frosting though, it all seperated so I added a stick of butter and whipped the living daylights out of it. Overall it was a good cupcake but not a knock your socks off cupcake. Can’t wait for your take on the idea!

        -Becca

      • Will do. One thing to know is that any time you make a whipped cream frosting that separates, don’t try to salvage it. When heavy cream separates, you actually made butter but then you have all the excess liquid in the bowl. It’s best to start over. That is a tricky frosting, it is quite temperamental.

  90. Hi, I tried making this kind of cupcakes. And it’s really good. I know some of you are already a pro in baking, i would kin’a ask some help, if that’s okay? Whenever I bake some cupcakes, after baking it…some of it will have a funny looking volcano cone. I use convection oven because I don’t have the gas oven. And that oven only have Celsius so I have to convert it. I don’t know whats really wrong. Help me! =c

    • I don’t know exactly what causes that. It doesn’t really seem like a problem though – you can just level them with a paring knife or cover it with frosting.

  91. Thank you so much ma’am.

  92. I am making these tonight, for the 3rd time in a month! Everyone loves them 🙂 I bought cute little mini oreos to decorate with this time.

  93. Annie; I wanted to say thank you for sharing the recipes you use. I had a friends’ birthday this week and wanted to make something that was intricate enough for me to enjoy, but simple enough he’d enjoy as well.
    I loved this cake idea (white w/ oreo pieces) and especially the idea of the oreo on the bottom… but I knew he’d not like the cream cheese frosting… so I took the whipped cream frosting from the other oreo cupcake recipe… delicious! This worked out so well, and I think I’m keeping the batter recipe and trying other add-ins… it is a delicious batter by itself. All the people who had them are asking for more.
    A lot of blogs just do updates and pictures… with no recipes. So I really wanted to say thank you for being kind to offer the recipes you use and taking the time to type them out for us. It’s a lot of fun to make food for people, and even more fun to try new ideas and recipes. Thanks for allowing other people to enjoy your creative fun too.

  94. OMG!!!! These cupcakes were absolutely incredible. I think they were better than the cookie dough cupcakes … by far! I agree with Gail, I so appreciate you taking the time to post the recipes that you use.

  95. I was looking up cupcake recipies and wondered onto you’re website and saw these delicious treats. I was really craving something sweet and in a ‘cupcake’ form since we didn’t have anything sweet around the house. Someone I know is at the store RIGHT NOW getting the ingredients to make it. Thanks so much for sharing this.

  96. P.S.- And like a previous comment….. —-> I would SO* eat the monitor right now! Yummy! =D

  97. Annie, I’ve just recently started viewing your blog after a friend referred me here for fantastic cupcake recipes. I have to say, I’ve made these twice now and they are just amazing! Your presentation of them in the hot pink cupcakes is just beautiful, too. Thanks for a great recipe!

  98. I made these with the vanilla Oreos!! You have to try them with the vanilla Oreos…it’s amazing!

  99. Just made these today, and oh my goodness were they delicious!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  100. I made these this weekend and I must say: wow! The oreo half on the bottom of the cupcake is the real stroke of genius here. Great recipe!

  101. I’d love to try these but only want to make 12. Would you recommend 1 or 2 egg whites?

  102. oh my annie!! Great job on these cupcakes! Good thing I found your website, my son asked me for some oreo cupcakes for his birthday. These would be perfect! Should I half this recipe if I wanted to make them into mini cupcakes and use the mini oreos…any ideas?

  103. Hi Annie,

    I love your blog! I was wondering if I could use Soy Milk instead of milk in these cupcakes?

  104. Hi Annie!

    Okay, so I will be trying these ASAP!!! I have a silly question, how do you get your cupcake liners to look so good? They are fresh looking, not baked on the cupcake and greasy looking from being in the oven.

    Any tips you have?

    • It is the type of liners you buy. These particular ones are grease-proof, so they look nice even after baking.

  105. These look amazing! My husband is having company tonight for dinner so I am going to make these for dessert. I LOVE Oreo’s! I am super excited to make them 🙂

  106. Well, I made these twice! I overbaked them the first time and the second time forgot two of the egg whites! Yikes! They are supposed to be dense, right? or should they be airy? Also, my icing did not come out well at all! I did use 1/3 less fat, maybe that was why?

    • These aren’t really dense cupcakes – not super light either, because of all the cookie chunks, but I wouldn’t call them dense. You may have overmixed the batter. It’s tough to say what was wrong with your frosting. You would have to be more specific.

  107. You may have it right on overmixing the batter and as for the icing I meant to say I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese -it didn’t have the right texture or taste…I ended up adding more butter and powdered sugar and calling it a day! I know these would be awesome if I could just get it right. The oreo bottoms sort of had a burnt taste to them too.

  108. Made these last week for my daughter’s 16th birthday and everyone LOVED them! Thanks for the recipe/idea.

  109. This recipe has been on my “to make” list and I finally made them today. My husband love’s Oreo cookies and he loved it! They were so good!

  110. These look absolutely amazing! I’m trying them this weekend and I’ll be sure to let you know how they go!!! Can’t wait!

  111. Hi Annie! I was wondering how you get those chocolate crumbs sprinkled in neat circles on the frosting. I’m making these for Halloween, and I can’t wait to surprise my friends using my great new baking weapon (your blog)! Thanks so much for sharing!

    • I didn’t do anything special, just sprinkled them over the top. I think it’s just the shape of the frosting that helped them to land that way. Enjoy!

  112. Oooh I made these this weekend and they were amazing! Everyone has said how great they are and it’s thanks to your wonderful recipe! Can I ask, why just egg whites and not the whole eggs? Also what icing tip do you use to get your cupcakes looking like that?

    Thanks for a fantastic recipe!!

    • I didn’t invent the recipe so I don’t know why just egg whites, but my guess would be so that the cake stays a pretty white color. I answered the question about the pastry tip in the comments above already, but it is just an unlabeled round tip.

  113. I made these and they were AMAZING!!
    Thank you!

  114. OMG these look amazing. I have to try these!!!

  115. Annie I made these last night and loved the whole idea. The presentation of these cupcakes are adorable. I was wondering…have you tried a cream cheese frosting that doesn’t taste so sugary?

  116. Hi Annie! I plan to make this cupcake for my nephew’s first birthday. I was wondering do you think it would be okay to make the cake part a day ahead then just do the icing on the day itself? Or do you think it will still taste the same even if I do both the cake and icing a day before the bday? Just worried that making it ahead of time will affect maybe the taste or texture of the cupcake. Thanks!

    • You can do everything the day before and just refrigerate. I pretty much always bake and assemble cupcakes a day in advance. Enjoy!

  117. Made these this weekend….AMAZING. Everyone loved them. Thanks for the recipe! As good as it sounded, your pictures are what put me over the edge and I knew I had to try it. Will definitely make these again soon……after I get through your pumpkin recipes for Thanksgiving!

  118. I made these for a friend & they disappeared in seconds! 🙂

  119. Annie these cupcakes were wonderful!! I just made them last night. And I just realized that you posted these on the day I had my son! June 2nd 2010! Awesome! I posted this recipe on my blog with a little bit about you. Your such an inspiration… Thanks for sharing!

  120. Hi Annie….You’re my inspiration behind blogging. I love your site and check it everyday!

    I made these cupcakes last week and they were AMAZING. Here is my version:

  121. Hi Annie!
    I personally loved this cupcake cause of all the oreos. I was wondering though if you think the lighter creamy topping of your other oreo cupcake would work with the cake of this recipe.

  122. Hello Annie

    I tried this recipe using the Golden Oreos…..not a hit. The regular Oreos are still crunchy after being baked…the Golden Oreos get soGgy and taste funny….Did you try and use the Golden Oreos??

  123. I tried these for thanksgiving – came out amazing! They tasted great and were a huge hit.
