Oreo cupcakes

How scrummy do these look? The credit goes to a website called Recipe Snobs that wisely recently changed the name from Food Snots!

The recipe is very straightforward.
Ingredients Makes 24
2-3 packs Oreo Biscuits(need about 35-US packs are bigger OF COURSE!)
1 pack chocolate cake mix
225g/8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
110g/ 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
500g/ 3 3/4 cups icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 muffin cake cases

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Mix packaged cake mix according to directions (do not bake). Line bun tins with cases, place a regular size Oreo cookie in the bottom of each liner. Take 1/2 of remaining cookies and chop coarsely and add to cake mix. Fill the cupcake tins. Bake for 15 minutes (or according to box directions).


While cupcakes are baking make the icing. Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla, then add powdered sugar slowly until blended well. Chop remaining regular-sized Oreos very fine (could put the cookies in the food processor)Add to icing. After cupcakes have cooled ice using piping bag. If icing is not stiff/thick enough add more icing sugar.
