Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

I made these for a Super Bowl Party and they were great.  I combined a couple of ideas that I found online.


I made the cupcakes from scratch but they were a bit more dense that I would have liked so next time I would probably just use a white cake mix.  Mix some crushed Oreos into the batter before baking.  I also used store bought icing (it was a busy weekend) then sprinkled the tops with Oreo crumbs.  If that isn’t enough Oreo for you, there is a surprise waiting for your inside:


That’s right, there is an Oreo truffle in the middle.  That’s why I wanted a lighter cupcake—to contrast with the truffle.  The truffles are just crushed Oreos (well I used off-brand throughout) mixed with cream cheese.  Drop the truffle into the cupcake liner before pouring batter over it.
