Ingredients
For the Cupcakes:
  • 1 Devils Food Cake + ingredients to make according to cupcake directions
  • 24 Oreo Cookies (or similar chocolate sandwich cookies)
For the Icing:
  • ½ cup butter (I use salted and unsalted with no change in taste)
  • ½ cup vegetable shortening
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 - 6 Tbsp milk
  • 8 Oreo Cookies (or similar chocolate sandwich cookies), finely crushed
  • 24 mini Oreos (optional)
Instructions
For the cupcakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners
  2. Prepare cake mix according to the directions on the box
  3. Place just enough batter in each well of the cupcake pan to cover the bottom of the liner.
  4. Top/center an Oreo on top of the batter. Cover the Oreo with more batter until cupcake wells are ¾ full.
  5. Bake according to directions on the package (typically about 22 minutes)
  6. Remove from oven and cool completely.
To make the icing:
  1. In a mixer with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and shortening until blended.
  2. Add vanilla and beat until blended
  3. Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time and scraping the sides of the bowl as needed until all ingredients are incorporated.
  4. Add milk, 1 Tbsp at a time until frosting is the right consistency.
  5. Beat frosting on high for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
  6. Add crushed Oreos and beat for another 30 seconds
  7. Add a little more milk if the frosting seems to stiff.
  8. Frost the cupcakes with the icing (or you can use a basic piping bag and tip). Stick a mini Oreo in the icing for decoration
