Anyone who is a fan of Oreos will fall in love with these Oreo cupcakes. Over 34 billion Oreo cookies are sold each year, so why not use some to make these delicious chocolate cupcakes?

I love Oreos and a lot of my sweet treats are centred on Oreos such as my no-bake Oreo cheesecake or my Oreo milkshake.

Cupcakes are great because you can get the kids to help and keep them occupied for a while.

So, Oreos have a very distinct flavour due to the use of black cocoa powder. If you want to replicate that exact Oreo flavour, then you will need to use this cocoa powder.

I usually use regular cocoa powder as I find it has more of that chocolatey flavour that I’m looking for. Whichever cocoa powder you choose to use these Oreo cupcakes still taste delicious.

So, I don’t always use Oreos in this recipe. Any cookies and cream biscuits will do. Every supermarket has its own brand of these biscuits so feel free to use whichever you choose.

It is always best to use unsalted butter in almost all baking recipes because the salt content can be controlled. Baking, unlike cooking, is all about precise measurements, so ingredients must be precise.

As different brands of butter contain varying amounts of salt, you will never be able to know the exact amount of salt you need. Salt is an essential ingredient because it helps to enhance the flavour of the chocolate.

Caster sugar is commonly used in baking recipes because it has finer grains than granulated sugar. I stick to granulated sugar because that is what I usually have on hand, and I find there is no difference in taste.

I always make my own homemade Oreo buttercream frosting. But to save time, you can buy some buttercream frosting and mix in crushed Oreos. It won’t taste as good as homemade, but it will do for a quick fix.

Always pipe the frosting after the cupcakes have cooled completely, or the frosting will melt and form a mess.

These fluffy chocolate cupcakes are perfect for Oreo fans everywhere.

This cupcake recipe is jam-packed with so many cookies and cream flavour and is definitely a recipe to add to your baking list.
