I saw this recipe on the justapinch recipe club and thought it sounded good. Thanks to Debbie Wright who posted it there.


1 pkg Oreos, regular size
1 pkg Mini Oreos, for decoration
1 pkg Chocolate Cake Mix/ Mix According To Directions On Box
8 oz Cream Cheese, room temperature
8 Tbsp Butter, room temperature
3¾ cup Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Cupcake Liners


1. Preheat oven to 350. Mix packaged cake mix according to directions. (Do not bake yet.)

2. Line cupcake tins with liners, place an regular size Oreo cookie in the bottom of each one

3. Take 1/2 of remaining cookies and chop coarsely and add to cake mix. Fill the cupcake tins. Bake for 15 min (or according to box directions). While cupcakes are baking make the frosting.

4. Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla, then add powdered sugar slowly until blended well.

5. Chop remaining regular-sized Oreos very fine. Add to frosting.

6. After cupcakes are cool put frosting on and decorate with a few mini Oreos on top.
