Chocolate Cupcakes with Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting

Guys, this frosting is so good you’ll just want to spoon it straight into your mouth. Fortunately for everyone who eats my cakes, I run a tight ship hygienically and exercised a great amount of will power by not treating the piping bag as a sort of popsicle.

Again, I am not in any way affiliated with Oreo. But I wish I was.

Preheat oven to 375 F.  In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Then add in the eggs, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla and beat until the batter is very smooth.  Then add in the coffee. Stir until thoroughly combined. The batter will be extremely liquidy.

Fill your cupcakes 2/3 fill. And bake for about 25 minutes. Then move them to a wire rack to cool.

Whilst the cupcakes are cooling, combine cream cheese, butter and vanilla extract in a large bowl and beat until thoroughly combines. Mix in the sugar until its throughly incorporated, and the frosting is light and fluffy. Then fold in all the finely ground oreos. The frosting will take on a cookies ‘n’ cream hue.

This frosting is really prone to melting so make sure your cupcakes are completely cook. Frost your cupcakes and then top with the coarsely chopped oreos.
