I’ve mentioned before that my husband is an Oreo lover. He will seriously eat them every day if we have them at home. Me – I like them ok, but I prefer a home baked goodie any day over a store bought cookie. So when I saw these cupcakes on Confessions of a Cookbook Queen – I knew it would be a great way to make both of us happy!!

These cupcakes are a true treat. You start with an Oreo on the bottom, followed by a white cupcake filled with a marshmallow filling. Let me tell you – that marshmallow filling alone is reason enough to make these. I just wanted to eat it with a spoon (and did!). Then, as if they couldn’t get any better – you top that off with Oreo infused buttercream.

Now, I’d take one of these over a plain, store-bought cookie any day!!

Cookies and Cream Cupcakes
from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen

makes about 24-30 cupcakes

Cupcakes
1 box white cake mix
1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup water
3 eggs
24-30 Oreos

Filling
13 oz jar Marshmallow Creme
1 stick of salted butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons heavy cream
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Frosting
4 sticks salted butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
8 cups powdered sugar
15 Oreos, crushed

To make the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 350F. Line muffin tins with liners. Place an Oreo in the bottom of each liner.

Combine the cake mix, butter, water and eggs in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on low speed for one minute. Increase the speed to high and beat for one minute. Fill the liners 2/3 full. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the tops spring back when lightly touched.

To make the filling: Beat the Marshmallow Creme, butter, vanilla and heavy cream on medium until it is smooth. Add the powdered sugar slowly, then increase the speed and beat for a minute. Refrigerate the filling until ready to use.

To make the frosting: Beat the butter, cream and vanilla in the bowl of a mixer until smooth. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Once the powdered sugar is mixed in, beat for 2 minutes on medium-high. Fold in the crushed Oreos.

To assemble: Once the cupcakes are cool, cut a small hole in the center of the cupcake. (For a tutorial on how to fill a cupcake, click here.) Fill the centers with the marshmallow filling. (You can do this by spooning it in or by using a pastry bag and piping it in.)

Generously frost or pipe the frosting on the cupcakes. Top with a mini Oreo, if desired.

    Too funny we both have oreos on the brain in our posts today! These look really good!

  2. Today is the day of the Oreo! I have seen 4 blogs post recipes using them! LOL! I love Oreos and love all the Oreo inspired and infused treats. I have made an Oreo frosting before and LOVED IT!!!! I served mine on chocolate cupcakes however and was in pure heaven.

    OMG! These are like cookies and cream goodness to the max! They’re just loaded down with wonderful things.

  4. These cupcakes look wonderful! I love the way the cookies and cream comes through in the frosting.

  5. Deborah…amazing job. YUM!!!!!

  6. These are adorable! I love the cute little mini Oreo on top!

  7. Joanne says:

    I saw these and also totally fell head-over-heels for them. Oreos are a weakness of mine and I haven’t had one in…four years. Because, well, I can’t be trusted around them. But for these cupcakes…I think I need to take a hiatus from my hiatus. Amazing!

    I feel like you have redesigned your website since I’ve been here. If you have, then looks good! If you haven’t, then I still say it looks good!

    These cupcakes are such a work of art. From the outside they look like normal cupcakes. It is not until you cut them in half that I saw their true beauty. Yummy.

  9. teresa says:

    i’m pretty sure my husband would marry me all over again if i made these for him too. how delicious! i have got to make these, and then hide them from myself, haha!

  10. Alli says:

    Wow I want one of these badly. Your decorating is beautiful. I make a cookies and cream cupcake but, this is a new spin and your frosting looks so much better then mine. I have oreo cupcake envy.

  11. You are amazing! Gah Oreo cupcakes…that sounds and looks like heaven!

  12. Tessa says:

    Marshmallows, oreo, frosting, and cupcakes. These look great!

  13. Holly says:

    YUUUUUUUMMMY-these looks deeelish:)

  14. Katrina says:

    My boyfriend is an Oreo lover too, and so am I! These are perfect :)

  15. Jenna says:

    I love the way the frosting looks on these.

  16. Heaven in a cupcake wrapper!

  17. Kate says:

    I’m going to try this with a yellow cake mix…hope it works! I’ll let you know when they’re done1

  18. Kate says:

    They were wonderful! The yellow cake mix worked out great. I would recommend that you split the filling recipe in half (use a 7 oz jar of marshmallow creme)–I ended up with WAY TOO MUCH filling, even with 31 cupcakes. I also halved the frosting recipe, but I didn’t pipe my frosting, I just spread it on with a knife. So if you pipe, make the whole recipe.

    Rich and decadent–I definitely could only handle one of these, but they were amazing!

  19. Deborah says:

    Kate – I’m so glad you liked them! I agree – there was a lot of the marshmallow filling – I should have mentioned that. I guess I didn’t mind because I ended up just eating the filling – one spoonful at a time!! :)

  20. Katrina says:

    Wow, those do look and sound great. I’m with you–homemade cookie over Oreos anytime. But I do like when Oreos are a star player in homemade things like this! They look awesome!

  21. grace says:

    this is such a good idea! i’ve seen oreos as a mini cheesecake base, but never in a cupcake. i’m trying this immediately.

  22. michelle says:

    do you even know how many times I’ve made your cookies n’ cream cake?!!! These cupcakes look sooo good! (and someone in my family turns two this week! Can we say birthday cupcakes?!) yum!

  23. Mrs. L says:

    Wow, these caught my eye right away! They look soooo good!

  24. Wendy says:

    Thank you so much I love this recipe. I changed it up a little — Instead of an Oreo at the bottom I made an Oreo crust, and then used flour frosting with crushed Oreos for the top. I agree WAY to much filling. I’m going to used the leftover on a Devil’s Food cake :)

  25. These look scrumptious! I will have to make these on my next cupcake-making excursion…after my Maple Bacon cupcakes that I’ll be trying out soon :)
    That frosting is so pretty! I love the look of cookies & cream.

    I made some cookies & cream cupcakes, only they were MINI, and CHEESECAKE! Can’t go wrong there, lol.

    so is heavy cream whipping cream like heavy whipping cream ’cause thts what i have could i use tht??

  27. Kristine says:

    We made these last night and they were delicious. I had put off making them because I thought they would be complicated, with the addition of the filling, but they were so much easier to put together than I thought they would be. These cupcakes were good enough to be in a cupcake shop! I have made many of the recipes you have shared and been happy with all of them. Thanks!

  28. Karen says:

    I made these this weekend, the are really really really good! :)

  29. Mindy says:

    Do you think I could sub the butter in the cupcakes with coconut oil, or would that change the taste too much?

  30. Beth says:

    Would you mind sharing what tip you used to frost those cupcakes? They are beautiful!!!
