candy corn oreo cupcakes

Have you tried Candy Corn Oreos? They're pretty tasty! 
I thought they would make for a fun cupcake... 
 Side-note- I'm in love with my new cake stand from Target
The best part of these cupcakes is the half Oreo on the bottom.
These don't split as well, so they have more filling than usual. 

 

Candy Corn Oreo Cupcakes
Adapted from Anne Byrn 
Cookies and Cream Cupcakes from 

30 Candy Corn Oreos (or any Oreos) 
1 package plain white cake mix
1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt (you can substitute sour cream)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Line 24 cupcake cups with paper liners.
3. Separate 12 Oreos and place one half Oreo in each cupcake cup. Place them in the cup filling side up. 
4. Place remaining 18 Oreos in large Ziploc bag and SMASH away! 
5. Place cake mix, yogurt, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Mix away! Low for 30-ish seconds, scrape down sides, then beat on medium for 1.5 min and scrape down sides again. Mix in (on low) 1.5 cups of crushed Oreos until well combined. 
6. Spoon in 1/3 cup mixture into each cup and place in oven. 
7. Bake cupcakes 18-20 minutes or until lightly golden and spring back when you touch them. 
8. Cool on wire racks for 5 min. and then remove baked cupcakes from the pan to cool on a wire rack.
9. Now for the frosting!

Buttercream Frosting 

1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature 
3 cups powdered sugar sifted
3-4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
The remaining crushed Oreos

In a large mixing bowl blend butter for 30 seconds or until fluffy. Stop the machine and add sugar, milk, and vanilla. Blend on low until sugar is incorporate and then on medium until light and fluffy. Add up to 1 tablespoon more milk if frosting seems too stiff. Add remaining Oreos and mix on low until fully combined. 

10. Place a heaping tablespoon of frosting on each cupcake and swirl around. Then sprinkles!

OR you can color the frosting and layer it like I did on some of mine (see below). Just omit the crushed Oreos.   

11. These cupcakes can be stored at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for a week. That's IF there are any leftovers! ENJOY!
