Hi everyone, it’s Jenn from Deliciously Sprinkled! I’m so excited to share these INSANELY delicious Cookies and Cream Cupcakes with all of you today. Seriously, these cupcakes are my new all-time favorite cupcake…I mean, look at that frosting.

These Cookies and Cream Cupcakes not only taste great but they are SO SIMPLE to make. To make these cupcakes, I start out by using my go-to Vanilla Cupcakes recipe. I then added a bunch of crushed Oreos to the vanilla cupcake batter and bake them for about 20 minutes.

While I waited for the cupcakes to cool, I started to make the frosting which starts out my using my favorite  Vanilla Buttercream Frosting recipe. I then folded in some more crushed Oreos into the frosting to make a delicious cookies and cream frosting.

FROSTING TIP: To frost these cupcakes, I used an ice cream scooper to “scoop” the frosting on top of each cupcake and then sprinkled some more crushed Oreos on top. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Enjoy & Happy Valentine’s Day! (p.s. these cupcakes would make the perfect V-Day gift!)

  1. Hi may i know what the sour cream is for? If possible can i just do away without it or replace it with sour light cream?

    1. I have not made it without sour cream or with sour light cream. It may work out great or it may change the taste/texture of the cupcakes. If you do try it, let me know how it turned out! Xo

      Your Recipe Critic,
