Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 12 muffin cups with paper or aluminum foil liners.
  2. In a medium bowl or on a large square of waxed paper, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and vinegar; set aside for a few minutes to curdle.
  4. Add the sugar, oil and vanilla extract and other extract, if using, and beat until foamy. Add the dry ingredients in 2 increments, and beat until no large lumps remain.
  5. Add the chopped cookies to the batter, stirring just to combine. Spoon the batter into the liner cups, filling them three-quarters full.
  6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Frosting:.
  9. While cupcakes cook, in the bowl , beat the shortening and butter on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes, until well combined and fluffy.
  10. Reduce speed to low to add the sugar until incorporated, and then increase to medium-high speed to beat for about 3 minutes.
  11. Add the vanilla extract and milk; beat on the same speed for 5 to 7 minutes, until fluffy. Add the cookie crumbs, mixing well.
  12. Frost the cupcakes and serve!

I wasn't a fan of these and won't make them again. I was excited by the reviews, but the frosting had the cheap, taste and texture of that found on cakes from Wal-mart, Sam's Club or your local supermarket. I assume this is because of all the shortening used as opposed to a traditional buttercream. FYI...As some people have stated, I actually doubled the batter but not the frosting and still had frosting left over.

These were excellent! The only thing I would change is to make half the amount of frosting. I had a ton leftover for my cupcakes.
