Oreo Cookie Cupcakes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

From Simple and Delicious magazine Sept 2007 - submitted by M. Wiebe. A quick and easy cupcake to throw together that is different from the usual white cupcake. Kids seem to love these. (Prep time does not include time it will take for cupcakes to cool completely).

Thank you for posting this! I had photocopied this recipe at the library a few years ago and recently I misplaced it. My kids love these and were so happy to see the cupcakes waiting for them after school today! Anyone with kids needs to try this recipe. Thanks again.
