If there is one cookie most kids can agree on, it’s Oreo’s. I suppose the same could be said for grown-up’s as well. The classic cookie-and-cream flavor combination has found it’s way from cookie form into ice creams, candy bars, s’mores, rice krispies, and a hundred other recipes incarnations. Chocolate cookie, vanilla creme. An absolutely classic flavor. Add to that the winning combination of green peppermint, and the subtle coolness of a cream cheese based cupcake, and this is one recipe everyone will love.
