Cookies & Cream Oreo Cupcakes

We had a great weekend! We went to the wedding reception of some friends (Heath and Stacey) and were able to catch up with some good friends and have a great time! On Sunday I wanted to do some baking so I decided to try the recipe I found for Cookies and Cream Oreo cupcakes...they are really good! They taste just like cookies 'n cream ice cream! Yummo!

For the Cupcakes:
1 box white cake mix
1 pkg Doubles Stuff Oreos
*Make cake batter according to package; Set aside.
Twist apart 24 Oreos
Place the wafer with filling on it, (filling side up) in the bottom of each cupcake paper liner (set aside the other halves of the Oreos...you will use them later for the frosting). Then, with the remaining FULL Oreos in the package, put them in a ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to crush them up.
Fold the Oreos into the cake batter
Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake according to cake mix directions.
Once cooked, let fully cool before frosting!

For the Frosting:
1 pkg Cream cheese (room temp)
1 stick of butter (room temp)
4 cups Powdered Sugar
1/4 cup Whipping Cream (milk will work fine too)
1 TBSP vanilla
24 Oreo halves (that you set aside)
Mix together the cream cheese and butter...then add in the powdered sugar, whipping cream and vanilla. Frost each cupcake and then crush up remaining Oreo halves and sprinkel on top. Enjoy!
