I have not had much success with made-from-scratch homemade cupcakes (they keep turning out dry and crumbly), so I was glad to see these started with a box cake mix.
BD crushed the Oreos for the batter; I wanted it to be practically crumbs in the batter instead of large chunks. I thought this worked well since there was an intact half cookie at the bottom.
These didn't rise much, so you can fill the liners pretty full without them overflowing. I had enough batter for 24 medium cupcakes.
I mixed up the butter cream frosting while the cupcakes baked. Butter cream frosting is my favorite! The recipe calls for the remaining Oreos to go in the frosting. I just used them as a garnish instead.
If you are not a super-sweet fan, these would also be really good with no frosting.
