In September, I started a cupcake adventure. If you haven't read about it yet, you can do so here. ***
In the Kids' Cupcakes section of the book, there is a recipe for Cookies & Cream Cupcakes. Um, YUM!
You start by adding a bunch of crushed-up Oreo cookies to the vanilla batter.
Mix it all up...
And bake until they look like this:
LOOK at those yummy chunks of cookie. Fresh out of the oven, these cupcakes smelled a lot like cookies and cream ice cream, so I knew I was on the right track!
Then, you mix up a bunch of softened butter and cream cheese...
...and melt some white chocolate.
Cream the two together to make the most amazing white-chocolate icing to spread on your cupcakes. (It's reminiscent of the cream filling in an Oreo).
Grab a heapin' helping of mini Oreos.
Frost your cupcakes with the white chocolate icing and add a couple minis to decorate.
Then, unwrap that sucker as fast as you can and dig in!!!
