Once again I was inspired by a recipe on JAP. This time it was Debbie Wright's "Death By Oreo Cupcakes". Debbie made her dessert with chocolate cake mix. I am a brownie devotee and thought I'd try something similar using chewy brownies scaled down to a "mini bite". These are a brownie lover's dream and I hope you'll try them.

How to Make Mini Oreo Brownie Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare mini muffin tins with liners and add a mini oreo cookie in the bottom of each liner.
  • 2Prepare brownie mix using 2 large eggs instead of the 1 egg the mix recommends. And if you have leftover brewed coffee around, use that instead of the water that's recommended. Add canola oil. Mix and add the cup of chopped/chunked oreos. Stir until combined. Spoon carefully by teaspoonfuls into the cupcake tins. Don't over fill.
  • 3Bake 12 minutes, remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. When cool, remove from tins and let the brownies continue to cool.
  • 4Now you're ready to make the frosting. In medium size bowl, using a hand mixer, combine butter, neufchatel cheese, vanilla and confectioner's sugar. When smooth, fold in half the pulverized cookies.
  • 5Top each little cooled brownie cupcake with a dollop of frosting. Sprinkle with remaining pulverized oreos. Refrigerate, and remove a half hour before serving.
