Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

I haven’t made cupcakes in over a month. Can you believe it?!

These Cookies & Cream Cupcakes are my new favorite cupcakes. I love all things cookies and cream – ice cream, Hershey’s bars, everything – so of course I love these. They have a white cake base with chopped Oreo’s stirred in and they also sit on half an Oreo cookie. Cream cheese frosting and more Oreo’s for decoration make them one of the best looking cupcakes I’ve ever made.

My husband said they were like “a quadruple stuffed Oreo” because the cream cheese frosting really does taste like the Oreo cream! I cannot wait to make these again!
