Oreo Stuffed Cupcakes with Cookies and Cream Frosting | Easy Dessert Recipe

easy dessert recipe
These are so fun to make (especially with the kids) and if you use a boxed cake mix, can be such an easy dessert recipe.  Make these for a birthday party, a party at your kids school or even just a surprise treat for the kids when they get home from school!

Now, of course, I could make the chocolate cupcake batter from scratch, but why do that?  I know that there are some people who might yell about GMOs and additives, but until I find a homemade cupcake recipe that turns out as light and fluffy as the ones that I get from the boxed mixes, I am comfortable sticking with the boxed mixes.  Of course – if anyone has a recipe for cupcake batter that turns out as good as the mixes – feel free to let me know.

Where I won’t compromise is with the icing/frosting.  The stuff that comes in a can literally makes me gag, but I grew up with homemade frosting for everything, so I may be a little spoiled.  If you don’t mind the taste of canned frosting, you can make this even more of an easy dessert recipe by simply mixing crushed Oreos with a can of vanilla frosting.
