Hence these cookies and cream cupcakes. I have been wanting to make this recipe for ages, and I finally had the opportunity when we had a few friends over for dinner this week. I don't know about you, but I've had some bakery Oreo cupcakes fall short of my expectations—often they have just a single cookie as decoration, or they are dry from all the cookie crumbs.
But this recipe is what I think a true cookies-and-cream dessert should look like—there's a hidden Oreo at the bottom of each cupcake, the batter itself is full of chopped cookies, and then each cupcake is topped with cream cheese frosting, more cookie crumbs, and another half Oreo.
Yum! It definitely took care of my cookie craving. :)
