Oreo Cupcakes

I recently was sent some Birthday Oreo Cupcakes and included in the package was a recipe for Oreo Cupcakes. It looked fairly easy to make so I decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did- they were yummy!

I only had to pick up a few of the ingredients at the store.

The first step was to make the chocolate cupcakes according to the package directions and let them cool.

I melted some chopped baking chocolate with a little whipping cream to make a rich glaze for the tops of the cupcakes.

After refrigerating the cupcakes so the glaze can harden, I had the fun task of making the icing. Of course, my mixer decided to break at that point which made the task a little difficult.
