Ingredients
MOIST AND FUDGY COOKIES AND CREAM CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa, sifted
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 14 Double Stuffed Oreos, finely crushed
COPY-CAT SWEET TOOTH FAIRY COOKIES AND CREAM FROSTING
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 package Dream Whip, dry (you can omit if you want. Just helps with texture)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 Double Stuffed Oreos, finely crushed
Instructions
  1. Add the sifted cocoa powder to a medium sized bowl and pour in the cup of hot liquid. Whisk until completely dissolved.
  2. Next add the buttermilk to cool down the mixture, then add the sugar and whisk until all is combined.
  3. Add the eggs, oil and vanilla and mix again.
  4. In a small bowl, stir flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk this into the wet mixture until you no longer see any lumps.
  5. Stir in heavy cream until evenly mixed in.
  6. Lastly, stir in finely crushed Oreos.
  7. Pour into cupcake tins and bake at 350 degrees F for 18-22 minutes or until done. Let cool and chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
For Frosting
  1. Beat softened cream cheese and butter until smooth and blended. Add vanilla and salt and beat until well incorporated. Add Dream Whip and mix well. Add the powdered sugar and beat well. Lastly, add in the crushed Oreos and beat until well incorporated.
  2. Let frosting chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Once both cupcakes and frosting has chilled in fridge for at least 30 minutes, pipe frosting on top of cupcakes and enjoy! Store any left over in fridge. I personally think its best to eat them when the frosted cupcakes have chilled in fridge overnight. The more chilled... the better!
