Chocolate Cupcakes with Oreo Buttercream Frosting are the ultimate Oreo desserts! The cupcake is so light and fluffy, and the Oreo buttercream tops is off to perfection!
These Chocolate Cupcakes with a creamy and addictive Oreo Buttercream frosting are the ultimate dessert for Oreo lovers alike! The cake is so soft, light and moist and the buttercream frosting on top sets this dessert over the bar! I don’t think there is any dessert you could name that couldn’t be improved by an Oreo, and this cupcake is no exception.
Chocolate + Oreos = a match made in heaven. Seriously, I’m convinced. And the two combined into one delicious dessert? You might as well start writing your farewell letters to your diet. I’m serious, you’ll want to eat the entire bowl of Oreo Buttercream frosting before those poor cupcakes even have a chance to be frosted! 😉
This cupcake recipe is SO easy and simple to make. I know that sometimes making anything from scratch can feel intimidating, and if that’s how you feel, then you can always use a chocolate cake mix and it will still work just as nicely.
Whether or not you decide to go that route, you can also play around with the different cake flavors too. Not feeling chocolate cupcakes? You could swap it out for a yellow or white cake mix. A strawberry cake paired with the Oreo buttercream would also give you a chocolate-dipped strawberry flavor combination. Talk about HEAVEN!
These cupcakes are the perfect treat to make for any family gathering, birthday party or just as a “treating myself” dessert! No matter where you serve them, know there won’t be one cupcake left! (Yes, even if you make them just for you 😉

I have an insane weakness for oreo anything!!! I’ll take about 4-5 of those bad boys off your hands:-)
I think I may just have to eat that frosting with a spoon. And I’m not sharing. 🙂
I need one or two of these for breakfast!!
I heart Oreos in a big way!
These look so delicious! I want one!
Omg oreos are one of my favorite things on the planet. You had me at that picture. Don’t you love that Hershey’s cookbook?? Thanks for sharing!! 😀
Mmmm, love oreos and this buttercream sounds heavenly! That is a good chocolate cake recipe – I have made it a few times.
So, that cake recipe is my ALL TIME favorite, go-to chocolate cake. It is absolutely perfect. Now, the frosting looks AH-MA-ZING! I will have to try it as soon as the move is over (((sigh)))
I think having Orea buttercream would be a dangerous foodstuff to have around. I’d have to have a monitor with me to make sure the cupcakes got frosted!
Oh my gosh, Holly. I am sitting here eating oatmeal drooling over these cupcakes. Why can’t we eat Oreo’s for breakfast?! They look amazing!
Pretty sure I’m sitting here wondering why I haven’t made Oreo buttercream before. These cupcakes look amazing, Holly!
These look majorly amazing! THough I would find it hard not to just eat all that frosting!
These look to good to be true! I’d love it if you would share this post on my Southern Sundays linky party on Sunday. http://www.asliceofsouthern.blogspot.com
Hope to see you there!
My Oreo and chocolate loving family would love these beauties!!! Perfectly done, Holly~
Oreo buttercream was amazing! My husband wanted a variation of these from our local bakery, I used your recipe instead. So good! I couldn’t keep him out of the frosting. Thanks!
I made these back in July for my boss and everyone loved them. I’ve gotten requests around everyone’s birthday to make these. Thank you for an amazing recipe!!!
do i have to add boiling water?
I loved this cake and icing. The cake batter brought back memories of when my mom would make a cake and let us lick the bowl. yummy Thank you so much
A new family FAVORITE!!!
Is it ok to use UNsalted butter instead? I see alot of frosting recipes that call for unsalted butter?? Thanks can’t wait to try them.
Yes, you can use unsalted butter 🙂
