I had a vision the other night of
a vanilla cupcake with an Oreo truffle baked inside.

Make these I must!
(imagine that said in my best Yoda voice)
LOL!

First I googled it and YAY!!!!
This is an original idea…
I didn’t find anyone else that had done this before!
Gotta love that when it happens!

(I have seen quite a few versions since I first made these now)

Oreo Truffle Cupcakes

Prep Time: 2 hours

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Yield: 24 cupcakes

Oreo Truffle Cupcakes

An Oreo truffle is baked into the bottom of these cupcakes and then topped with 2 kinds of frosting. They are amazing!

Ingredients

1 package Oreo cookies, divided
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 vanilla cake mix (15.25 oz.)
1 container canned chocolate frosting
1 cup shortening
1 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons whipping cream
1 Tablespoon vanilla
8 cups powdered sugar (32 oz. bag)
sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Crush 24 Oreo cookies into crumbs. Beat in the softened cream cheese. Roll into at least 24 balls that are 1 1/2 inch big. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  2. Mix up the cake mix according to the package directions. Place 1/2 an Oreo cookie into the bottom of 24 cupcake liners. You can use either side of the cookie for this. I leave the frosting on the cookies too. Fill the liners one third full of batter. Drop a frozen Oreo truffle into each cupcake liner. Top with enough batter to cover the truffle. Do not fill more than 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Let cool completely.
  3. Beat together the butter, shortening, salt, whipping cream, and vanilla until creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar until it is all incorporated. Beat for 1-2 minutes longer. Frost the tops of the cooled cupcakes with a decorating bag and Wilton decorating tip. Place the frosted cupcakes in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the foil liner from the canned frosting. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until the frosting is runny. Remove cupcakes from freezer and dip the top of the butter cream into the heated frosting. Carefully let the excess drip off, then top with sprinkles and let set. Makes 24 cupcakes. Keep refrigerated.

Notes

You may have extra Oreo truffles depending on how big you roll the balls. Dip any extras in chocolate and enjoy.

    Made these yesterday :) I just iced them as we don’t have the same products here in Australia.

    They were so good, and I got asked for the recipe several times!

    I added the leftover “lids” of the Oreos to the truffle mix, mmmmm!

    I couldn’t resist trying these. They were yummy! I did add some crushed oreo to the cupcake batter and changed the frosting, but I loved the idea of the cookie on the bottom and delish truffle in the middle…so I got right to work…yum! I’m bookmarking some other recipes from your blog now!

    How many do these make? I was curious because I’m making them for a friend’s birthday. I am just wondering about how many so I can even everything out correctly, and know what to get at the store.
