Oreo Cupcakes!

Long awaited there it is, you wanted it, you got it!
Although I have not made them in quite a while, I found the site I got the recipe from and translated it for you, my loves and added my personal tips ;) Hope you'll enjoy it!



  • 2 eggs
  • 175g white sugar 
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 5 tbsp butter (~70g)
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 200g plain flour
  • 75g ground coconut (or nuts) - I used coconut and although I'm not a big fan, I really enjoyed how                                                                 they taste in those cupcakes :)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 100g plain (natural) yogurt
  • 12 oreos
  • 250-300ml COLD whipping cream (30%)
  • ~125g mascarpone
  • 8-10 oreos
  • 2-3 tbsp icing (/powdered/confectioners') sugar 

What to do?

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C and line muffin tins with paper liners. Put an oreo on the bottom of every paper liner.
  2. In a pan melt butter with hot water and cocoa.
  3. Beat eggs with sugar until mixture has thickened and turned a very pale yellow.
  4. In a seprate bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and coconut (or nuts).
  5. Turn the mixer on low speed and start adding to egg mixture: a spoon of yogurt, a spoon of cocoa mixture, a spoon of flour mixture and keep doing this untill you're incorporated all of the ingredients. Be careful not to overmix though! Turn the mixer off as soon as you mixed everything!
  6. Pour the dough evenly to 12 paper liners you've put oreos in (put the dough on top of the cookie)
  7. Bake for 15minutes :) And while cupcakes are in the oven start making frosting.
  8. Crush oreos - you can do this in blender, food processor or simply by putting oreos in a plastic bag and using rolling pin or  meat tenderizer ( be careful and don't hurt yourself or anyone else, please!)
  9. Beat whipping cream with icing sugar (remember to keep the whipping cream in the fridge till the last moment, it needs to be really chilled or it will start running and you won't be able to make whipped cream!)
  10. At the end of whipping (when it's pretty thick) add mascarpone.
  11. Really slowly mix in oreos and rather leave it not too corporated than go crazy with mixing.
  12. Wrap the bowl with cling foil and leave in a frigde to chill, while the cupcakes are cooling. 
  13. When cupcakes are ready and cooled decorate them with frosting!
And voila! There you have the delicious oreo cupcakes :) You can also decorate them with oreo cookies cut in half on top of the frosting
