Cookies N’ Cream Cupcakes

I’ve never felt more like a plastic bag than right now… just drifting through the wind

I just want to start all over again…

Did you know there is a spark in me and you?

Just let it shine just like you own the night like the 4th of July…

Because baby we are fireworks!

Please keep your color bursting to yourself because at this point I’m pretty sure I know what you are worth

and well…

BOOM BOOM BOOM!!

So, um… yeah that songs stuck in my head only because they still play it on the radio and guess where they play the radio? At work where it’s played like 8 billion times a day… Fortunately they did take the radio away so I no longer have to hear it but unfortunately I can’t listen to what I like when everyone leaves…

So my sister has been wanting cookies and cream cupcakes for like a month so I finally promised her would make them together at her house on Saturday… This was a big challenge I never have actually made anything for hey Jamie bakes while the sun was down and the blinds were closed so I had to use artificial light and my shadow was everywhere. It was hard but I did it!!

So yesterday I woke up laid on the couch in the living room since the sun shines right in my room at their house. Waited to go to the eye doctors and got contacts, went somewhere else that probably shouldn’t have that shall remain unnamed… Okay fine we went taco bell… No judging…. and we went home then later made our cupcakes… and they are bonkers…

I just had no idea how good they would turn out. I mean… seriously. I kinda impressed myself. Super good totally studded with Oreo cookie pieces in a fluffy soft cake! yum!!

These cupcakes are packed full of cookies and flavor…. They have junk in the trunk… Thick thighs, you know what I mean…

Cookies N’ Cream Cupcakes

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 mins

Makes 12 cupcakes

1 1/4 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kaluah (optional)

1/2 teaspoon vinegar

1/2 cup buttermilk

3/4 cup vegetable oil

2 tablespoons water (maybe more I like my batter kinda runny)

6 Oreo cookies roughly chopped

12 Oreo cookies to place in the bottom of the cupcake liners (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line the cupcake tray with liners then place one Oreo in each liner if you choose to have the cookie bottom. Then place all the dry ingredients in a bowl except the chopped Oreos. then add wet ingredients whisk together till well combined. Now time to add chopped ores fold in. now fill the cupcake pan with the batter. fill them till they’re almost full. bake 18 to 20 minutes or until done. let cool.

Cookies N’ Cream Icing

2 sticks unsalted butter

3 cups powder sugar

splash of kaluah (optional)

12 Oreo cookies finely ground

Place Oreos in a blender or food processor  and grind Oreos till finely ground. kinda looks like ground coffee. Now place butter and sugar in a bowl and you want to beat the two together till soft and fluffy. You may need to add a splash of milk if you need to make it less thick sometimes it feels to thick. Once fluffy you add your ground Oreos. once all combined and the icing turns this speckled gray color you are finished. Once cupcakes are cool ice the cupcakes.
