Oreos do not give me a reason for living. But these cupcakes do. The cookies work so well in a cupcake. I had some Oreos uneaten left over and wanted to put them in cupcake form. I whipped up a batch of chocolate cupcakes, with additional Oreo crumbs in it, and voila.

"these were a huge hit. kept it simply by adding the 20 crushed oreos to store bought chocolate cake batter and baking, then making the frosting. which by the way is delicious with the cream cheese... yum! added another 20 oreos to the frosting which is probably excessive to anyone else but they were delish and everyone loved them!"

I'm thinking about making these for fathers day since my sad loves Oreos. Do you think I could just switch everything to vanilla and use vanilla Oreos since those are his favorites? Or should I not try and just stay with the original recipe???

Lovely, my family love it ;) I halved the Oreo ingredients tho as it wasn't clear on the recipe, and based on the comment from others. Used 10 Oreos instead of 20. Also I think for UK size cupcakes it can state 36 cupcakes ish as opposed to 24.
