Oreo Cream Cupcake Recipe

by Courtney on April 25, 2010

Oreo Cream Cupcakes with Oreo Frosting

- 3/4 cup butter, room temp

- 1 cup brown sugar

-1 cup white sugar

- 7-8oz dark or milk chocolate, melted

- 3 large eggs

- 2 tsp vanilla extract

-2 cups all-purpose flour

-1 tsp baking powder

- 1 tsp baking soda

- 1 3/4 cups milk

- 8-10 Oreo cookies, chopped in food processor or with rolling pin


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Mix in eggs, vanilla, and chocolate.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  5. Alternate adding flour mixture and milk to the butter/sugar mixture.
  6. Stir in Oreos.
  7. Fill cupcake liners and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Cool completely and top with frosting (see below).

**The number of cupcakes the recipe yields will depend on the size of the cupcakes you make.  The size you decide to make may also change the bake time above.  I did a mix of jumbo sized and regular 12-muffin pan sized, so keep an eye on the oven anywhere in between 15-25 minutes.

Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting

- 8 oz. package of cream cheese, room temp (I used 1/3 less fat)

- 1/4 cup butter, room temp

- 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar (use more or less depending on how stuff you want the frosting to be)

- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

- 3/4 cup crushed Oreos


  1. Whip cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Mix in powdered sugar gradually, mixing completely between each addition.
  3. Add vanilla extract.
  4. Gently stir in crushed Oreos.
  5. Frost cupcakes and ENJOY! :)
  6. *Optional: Top each cupcake with a full Oreo cookie

Hi Courtney, do you think I could make the oreo cupcakes using cake mix? I don’t have the time or ingredients to make cupcakes from scratch… I wish I could because your oreo cupcakes look amazing!

Definitely! Just prepare the cake mix as directed and fold in some crushed Oreos :)
