As well – If you like sneaking tastes of uncooked cookie batter, this one’s for you. I usually resist, but I just can’t for these!

This recipe calls for a can of store bought frosting for ease. Yet I suggest making these using my Dream Whip Icing, it’s delicious and not too sweet.

These Oreo Cupcakes aren’t too sweet like I find the cookie itself, making it one excellent cupcake.

I love these for the everyday to birthdays and potlucks.

Word to the wise, if you are using ready-made packaged frosting for this Cookies and Cream Oreo Cupcakes recipe, whip it to double the amount.

It saves money and calories {but who’s counting, right?}. This kitchen tip is one of many genius time and money savers in one of my past posts.

I hope you love this cupcake recipe as much as I do, this one is worth making time and again!
