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!

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
