Oreo Cupcakes

I'm a real sucker when it comes to sweet treats such as cupcakes, cakes and chocolate and immediately the healthy eating is thrown out of the window. Plus I always seem to repeat the exact same three words 'start again tomorrow', it really is the story of my life.

When I watched Tanya Burr's video baking Oreo Cupcakes my mouth literally dropped to the floor, I'm not a massive fan of Oreo's but they looked delicious and had to give it a whirl. They were also the perfect present for my boyfriends birthday. 

The ingredients and the way you make them are pretty much exactly the same as how I made the Halloween Cupcakes last week which you can see here! 

175g butter
165g caster sugar 
3 eggs
125g self raising flower
40g Cocoa Powder

100g butter
200g icing sugar 

Large mixing bowl
Wooden spoon
Cupcake cases (Halloween style)
Weighing Scales 

1. The only difference to the mixture for the cupcakes is that you add the Cocoa Powder at the same time as the self raising flower and eggs. 

2. Before you place the mixture into the bun cases place an Oreo into the bottom of them for a special surprise to those who will bite into the cupcake. 

3. Get half a packet of Oreo's then either place them into a blender or into a sandwich bag and use a rolling pin to turn them into crumbs. Place this into the frosting mixture and blend thoroughly. 

4. Once the cupcakes are cooked and have the icing on top, take an Oreo and brake it in half, then place this on top of the icing and voila you have your cute and very tasty Oreo Cupcakes.

I hope that you enjoy these as much as I did making them :)
