Me and my daughter made these and they are to die for, my husband who doesn't eat many sweets like this ate 4 of them, the kids scarfed down the rest. Okay I admit I had a couple. I couldn't resist!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These are not only a really pretty cupcake, they are delicious and a real crowd pleaser. I loved the Oreo on the bottom - it's a hidden treat! The frosting is perfect and tastes like cookies and cream ice cream. Kids - big and small - are going to love these!

Note: If you follow Wendy's directions you will only have 2 Oreos left for topping the cupcakes. If you want cookie crumbs on top, either put less in the frosting or have extra cookies on hand.
