Oreo Surprise Cupcakes with Cookies and Cream Frosting Recipe. Simply Yummy!!!

Dana From This Silly Girl’s Life made a while ago this amazing zebra cake with cookies and cream frosting and I couldn’t resist making it too so I decided to make these delicious Oreo surprise cupcakes!!!



  • 12 whole Oreo cookies
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 100g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 Cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbls milk
  • 8 Oreo cookies, crushed fine


Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF {180ºC} and line muffin pan with cupcake liners.

With an electric mixer, cream the butter on medium speed until it’s very soft and creamy then add little by little the sugar and mix for about 5 minutes and add the vanilla.

I a small bowl mix the flour and baking powder.

Start adding to the butter mixture without turning off the mixer the eggs one at a time. Then little by little add the flour mixture and milk to the batter. Mix for a couple more minutes and turn off the mixer.

Add the chocolate chips and mix manually.

Place an Oreo cookie on each liner and divide evenly the batter for 12 cupcakes and cook for about 20 minutes.


To make sure they are done, insert a toothpick in the middle and if it comes clean it’s done.

Stand a few minutes before placing the cupcakes in a cooling rack. Let them cool completely.

Beat the butter, cream cheese and vanilla with a hand mixer for about 3 minutes until fluffy. Add the powdered sugar in batches and lastly the milk. Add the crushed cookies into the frosting and mix again just until well combined. Set aside until ready to frost.

Frost the top of each cupcake. If you like chunks like I do you won’t be able to use an icing bag but you can do it with a spoon and then place a yummy Oreo on top!



Serve and enjoy!
