The other day I saw a similar cupcake on Pinterest and realized how genius the whole concept was. Bake a cupcake, stuff with Oreos and consider it an Oreo pie cupcake. Who can argue with that?! Luckily, I guessed on the technique and it all worked out well. It was not unlike brownies stuffed with Oreos, only it was better!
Oreo Stuffed Cupcakes
1 batch chocolate cupcakes
1 batch vanilla buttercream frosting
1. Make the chocolate cupcake batter according to directions. Line a muffin tin and fill each one with one heaping tablespoon of batter. Add an Oreo to the muffin cup. Spoon a second tablespoon of batter over that Oreo. Place a second Oreo into the muffin tin and top with a final tablespoon of batter so no Oreo is showing through. Bake the cupcakes according to directions.
2. Frost the cupcakes with a swipe of the vanilla buttercream. You don’t need too much frosting since the cupcakes are so decadent.
