I saw the idea for these yummy cupcakes on My 101 in 1001. She has a much better picture of them, but here are mine:
Oh, and if that's your blog that I linked to, let me know! For some reason I get blocked everytime I try to leave a comment.
The basic recipe is to do the following:
- Take a box of chocolate cake mix and follow the directions to prepare it and pre-heat the oven. Line a cupcake pan with liners. Twist several oreos apart and put one half in the bottom of each liner. Fill 3/4 of the way with cupcake batter and sprinkle with crushed oreos on top. Bake according to directions. Let cupcakes cool completely and ice with chocolate icing. Then cut oroes in half and put one half on the top of each cupcake.
Viola! Yummy cupcake goodness!
I actually only had one of these, because it's kind of chocolate overload for me. I knew that when I decided to bake them, but sometimes I bake things I don't like very much or at all just because I like to bake...and I know that I won't be tempted to eat every last one! I was telling this guy at work that and he thought I was crazy! Do any of you do that sometimes?
Anyway, these are good in moderation so try it out!
