    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.

    These were a big hit with the younger crowd at a church function. Easy and tasty, what's not to love about Oreos? I used Recipe #19353 for frosting which was a bit heavy for these light cupcakes, but it did hold the Oreo crumbs nicely. I'll definitely make these again! Made for Potluck Tag

    These are so yummy Melly. I knew they would go over here as DS#1  like Oreo's. (I was making these as DS#1 was visiting and he took 6 home as he walked out the door). :-0 We make something similar to these at the restaurant I work for only in sheet cake form. It goes over really well. Just for the frosting part I used..recipe#309346 by Kittencal. Thanks for a winning recipe and family pleaser. Made for Potluck Tag~
