Oreo Cupcakes

What could be better than Oreo infused cupcakes? We absolutely love these cupcakes.  These cupcakes are the favorites of my hubs and the little lady of the house.  They may even be the favorite of the little man, but he can't tell me so yet.  This is a delectable cupcake.  It has half an Oreo on the bottom, Oreo in the batter, and a little bit of Oreo in the frosting.  It is pure goodness.  You can also make these into little sweet babies.  I have a fetish for little things, so I love these mini Oreos cupcakes.  Just be sure to buy a bag of the mini Oreos for the garnish and to put on the bottom of the cupcake. 

Oreo Cupcakes

1 package chocolate cake mix
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup oil
4 eggs
1 small package chocolate pudding
44 Oreos, divided (16 Oreos coarsely chopped, 14 Oreo halves, 14 Oreo halves for garnish)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water, oil and sour cream into a stand or electric mixer. Beat on medium speed for close to 2 minutes or until well combined. Coarsely chop 16 oreos.  Gently fold the Oreos into the cake batter.

2. Line the cupcake pans with paper liners. At the bottom of each liner, place half of an Oreo. Then fill with batter until the liner is 1/2-3/4 full. Bake for 18-24 minutes or until toothpick comes out mostly clean from center. Let cool completely. (This recipe makes about 28 cupcakes.)

1 cup butter (2 cubes)
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 pounds powdered sugar
3 finely crushed oreos

Beat butter in mixer bowl.  Add powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.  Beat until icing is creamy.  If it is too creamy to pipe on, put it in the fridge to harden it up a bit.  When frosting is ready, pipe onto cupcakes. 
Garnish each cupcake with a half of an Oreo.
