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

  1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare mini muffin tins with liners and add a mini oreo cookie in the bottom of each liner.
  2. Prepare 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.
  3. Bake 12 minutes, remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. When cool, remove from tins and let the brownies continue to cool.
  4. Now 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.
  5. Top each little cooled brownie cupcake with a dollop of frosting. Sprinkle with remaining pulverized oreos. Refrigerate, and remove a half hour before serving.
