Oreo Bottomed Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Oreo Frosting

Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings 18 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • Any chocolate cake recipe {I halved this one and added in 1/2 teaspoon baking powder}
  • 18 Oreo cookies

frosting:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk give or take 1 tablespoon
  • 6 Oreo cookies crushed

peanut butter glaze:

  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • Oreo cookies for garnish if desired

Instructions

  1. Line muffin tin with paper liners and drop an Oreo cookie into the bottom of each one. Set aside.
  2. Make chocolate cake batter according to package directions. Pour batter over each cookie, filling to 3/4 way full. Bake according to package directions or until toothpick comes out clean after inserted. Set aside to cool.
  3. For the frosting, whip butters, vanilla and powdered sugar together, slowly drizzling milk in to moisten. Once all the ingredients have come together into a frosting, whip 2 minutes 'til smooth and fluffy. Stir in oreo crumbs. Spread generously over cooled cupcakes.
  4. For the glaze, microwave peanut butter and maple syrup together for 30 seconds or until warmed and thinned out. {You don't want it too hot to melt the frosting.} Drizzle over each cake using a spoon or pour into a squeeze bottle and drizzle. Top with half a cookie and serve.
