Oreo Cupcake with Cookies and Cream Frosting

A few weeks ago I went camping and rafting with friends to celebrate a birthday.

It was the perfect opportunity to bring along cupcakes. The birthday boy was a fan of chocolate. Originally he asked for an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins - World Class Chocolate flavor. Well ice cream wouldn't have lasted too long at our campsite, waiting for us to raft down to it. And plus, I've got cupcake fever. Furthermore, there was a Boo Radley's Cupcakes idea floating in my head that centered around Oreos. Perfect timing.

I'll share the frosting recipe with you:

2 sticks butter, room temp
2 #s powdered sugar (you won't need all of it, just to be safe)
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 T milk
10 crushed up oreo cookies, minus the cream insides (or more, if those are your faves)

Cream the butter for a little bit, about 2 minutes. Then start to add the powdered sugar a bit at a time. The slower the better! It will help avoid granularity (is that a word?). Then add the vanilla and milk. Add more powdered sugar to get it to the desired consistency. Now the fun part! Throw the crushed oreos into the mix and gently fold into the frosting.

This frosting is sweet. But perfectly cookies-and-cream-like ... you will love it. I'm keeping the oreo chocolate cake a secret, sorry!
