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!

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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Oreo Cream Cheese Red Velvet Cupcakes

Test Kitchen Tips
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.

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcake liners.
  2. Sift cake mix into a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, sour cream, milk and vanilla extract until smooth
  4. Stir in cake mix into wet mix, mixing well.
  5. Take your Oreo's and place one at the bottom of each cupcake liner.
  6. Scoop batter over each Oreo to fill the liners about 3/4 full.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Let cool.
  8. While those are cooking, take your Oreo cookies (just the chocolate pieces and not the filling) and crush in a plastic bag using a rolling pin.
  9. In a medium bowl beat butter and cream cheese together. Add vanilla extract and slowly add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time beating to make smooth.
  10. When you have that all mixed sift your crushed Oreos into the mixture. Any broken up chunks left in the sifter put aside.
  11. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.
  12. Top with extra Oreos sprinkle chunks you set aside.
