Cookies ‘n’ Cream is one of my favorite ice cream flavors. It’s my standard fall-back choice if I can’t decide or am unsure I’ll like everything else on the menu. Since I love it so much, I figured why not make Cookies ‘n’ Cream cupcakes?
The directions are pretty simple: Make a basic white cake, crush up some Oreo cookies and add ‘em to the batter, and plunk half an Oreo wafer in the bottom of each cupcake tin before the batter is spooned in.
Top the finished cakes with a buttercream frosting (3 cups powdered sugar, 1 stick of butter, a couple tablespoons of milk, and a teaspoon of vanilla), and sprinkle even more crushed Oreos over the top. Mmmm!
