Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes

Tracy Byrne

I've made a lot of Oreo cupcakes, they are definitely a fan favorite!  Chocolate Oreo cupcakes have been in the back of my mind for awhile now, so it was about time I finally got around to making them!

I promised my homeroom if they raised over $400 for Pennies for Patients I would make them cupcakes.  Not only did they raise over $400, they raised more money than any other class in the sixth grade! I'm so proud of them!!  Since I have a lot of students with an aversion to chocolate, I also made Tie Dye cupcakes.

The kids really enjoyed the cupcakes and gave me lots of nice compliments.  After two weeks of state testing I was glad I could make them a nice treat!  The chocolate cupcake recipe is my current stand-by chocolate cake recipe.  So moist and delicious and chocolaty!  I sort of made up the frosting as I went along.  I just wanted simple amounts that corresponded to the packaging!  The frosting is sweet without being too sugary and has great cream cheese flavor.  This recipe makes a LOT of frosting!
