Chocolate Cupcakes with OREO Buttercream

Oreo cookies are one of my weaknesses. Especially double-stuffed Oreos. Oh my…..
Of course, when indulging in Oreo’s a giant glass of milk nearby is pretty important. It’s the only time I ever actually drink milk. When you’ve got a stack of Oreo’s in your hand, they’re just begging to be dunked.

If you’re an Oreo cookie fan then you will absolutely love this Oreo Buttercream frosting. It is creamy, dreamy Oreo heaven! Just let me give you a little advice, and please practice some self control when you whip up this heavenly stuff. You will want to eat the entire bowl before those poor cupcakes even have a chance to be frosted!


Chocolate Cupcakes with Oreo Buttercream
  • Hershey's 'Perfectly Chocolate' Cupcakes
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 Tablespoons milk or heavy cream
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 16 Oreos, finely crushed (I used my food processor)
  1. DIRECTIONS FOR CUPCAKES: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 30 muffin cups with paper bake cups, set aside. Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin) Fill cups ⅔ full with batter. Bake 20-22 minutes, or until tooth-pick inserted comes out clean. Cool cupcakes completely before frosting.
