Sweet Tooth Tuesday: Cookies n Cream Cupcakes

I am a HUGE fan of anything that is cookies 'n cream so when I found this recipe for these cookies 'n cream cupcakes I was way excited!!! The frosting is amazing! It tastes just like the filling of an oreo. They are very sweet so one cupcake is very satisfying.

Cookies 'n Cream Cupcakes:

Chocolate cake mix

Preheat oven to 350. Make up cake mix according to directions. Place lines in muffin pan and spoon in one spoonful batter. Place one whole cookie on top of batter. Press down slightly. Finish filling the liners until 3/4 of the way filled. Bake 22 minutes. Remove and cool completely.


2 cups shortening
1/4 tsp salt
4 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
8 cups (32 oz) powdered sugar
oreos crushed

Beat shortening til creamy. Add salt, milk, and vanilla. Cream. Slowly add powdered sugar. Add another 2-4tsp milk. Frosting will be thick. Pipe onto cupcakes. Add crushed oreos to the top of the cupcakes. Enjoy!
