The Best Oreo Cookie Cupcakes

Sharing is caring!

This week our sweet twins turned double digits! Yes, they are now 10 years old. Where in the world did the time go? I feel like day after say just slips through my hands.

I asked Nick and Luke what kind of cake they wanted for their birthday. I love making homemade birthday cakes and cupcakes! After searching through tons of recipes and pictures, they both wanted these Oreo Cookie Cupcakes. And let me tell you, they are SUPER easy to make.

Prepare the cake mix according to the box directions.

Line your cupcake pans with liners. This recipe makes 24 cupcakes, so you can do two pans at one time in the oven.

Next, place one Oreo cookie in the bottom of each cupcake liner.

Fill each cupcake liner 3/4 of the way with batter. I like to use a small to medium scoop like these to make it easier and less messy.

Pop them in the oven at the temperature instructed on the box for the amount of time instructed. Ours said to do 350° for 15 minutes.

Remove them from the oven and let them cool 100%.

Once they are cool, top with a heaping spoonful of Oreo Buttercream Icing and a stemmed Maraschino cherry.

  1. This Oreo cookies cupcake is simply fabulous and I am definitely going to give it a try! I am having a tea party soon and I wanted to serve up some delicious cupcakes but was pondering over what recipe to use. This is the perfect one! Thanks for sharing!

  2. These look to die for! I really enjoy Oreos but a lot of Oreo treats are too sweat for me so I can only have a few bites. I like that it is made with vanilla cake instead of chocolate.
