Valentines Vanilla Oreo Cupcakes

So I basically just made these from scratch. I just threw things together and they turned out great :)Β 

*please note:Β this recipe makes EXACTLY 12 cupcakes if you’d like more double the recipe or make two batches.

So these are cookies and cream cucpakes with vanilla buttercream and a chocolate center:



  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 -1 cup flour (start with 3/4 and add more if needed)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup (or more) oreo crumbs or smashed oreos (you can put cookies in a ziplock bag and roll them with a rolling pin)
  • 12 chocolate balls, truffles, or whatever you desire.
buttercream frosting
  • 2 1/2 cups icing (confectioners) sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • milk (depending on desired consistency)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F and line a cupcake pan with 12 liners
  2. In a mixer (or with hand held mixer) cream butter and sugar together.
  3. On low speed add the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated.
  4. Add vanilla
  5. In a separate bowl: sift in flour, salt and baking powder.
  6. Add dry mix and milk alternately until batter is smooth and thick.
  7. Mix in the oreo crumbs.
  8. Fill cupcake liners 1/2-3/4 full and push the chocolate ball just so half of it is remaining out of the batter.
  9. Bake for 15-20mins on the center rack, or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean.
The chocolate in the middle will sink down on it’s own so do notΒ push it right down in the wet batter πŸ˜‰

To make the vanilla butter cream:

  1. Cream butter until soft and smooth.
  2. Add vanilla.
  3. Add icing sugar (be careful not to turn your mixer high or powdered sugar will fly everywhere!)
  4. Slowly add milk until icing reaches desired consistency.
  5. Colour and spoon into piping bag to decorate, or spoon on with a spatula.

  1. That looks yum-o!!!

    Im not much of a plain chocolate fan, so id put some sort of creme similar to the creme in oreos in the center.

    Oreos=the almost best…girl scout tag alongs > oreos

  2. My mouth is watering now…ha These look so delicious! About all my favorite sweets complied into one sweet cupcake! Ah I can’t wait to try these, my hips might be in trouble though! ha I have a feeling a might be hard to eat just one!

    P.S. We tried Colin’s Porkchop casserole the other night you shared a few weeks back! SOOO delicious! :)

    • It definitely is hard to eat just one – I think I may have eaten 4 *blush* I have been working out a lot to burn them off πŸ˜‰
