Oreo Cupcakes

Tired of eating Oreo’s out of the package? Well now you can make them into a cupcake! YUM! I’ve googled and tried a couple of recipes and played around with them. This recipe makes about 9 chocolate Oreo cupcakes. You can make these into vanilla Oreo cupcakes but substituting the two tablespoons of cocoa powder for one tablespoon of flour. Enjoy!
