Mint Oreo Chocolate Cupcakes

My baby is 5! I wanted to make treats for his preschool and he requested mint cupcakes. There are lots of different ways to incorporate the Mint Oreo and this is what I came up with (the lazy way).

I made 2 batches (48) since there are 38 preschoolers and 5 teachers. 

What I used (Click here for a printable recipe):

2 Boxes Pillsbury Devil's Food Cake Mix (I made 2 separate batches)
6 Eggs (3 each box)
2 Cups Water (1 Cup each box)
1 Cup Oil (1/2 Cup each box)

2.5 Packs of Mint Oreos
2 Cans of Butter Cream Frosting
Round Piping Tip (the only one left from my pack!)


Preheat oven (350° according to my box)

First Batch - Mix Cake Mix according to package.

Line cupcake pans and place half a mint Oreo on the bottom with cream side facing up.

Fill each cup with batter.

Bake as directed (19 minutes for me) & let cool.

Repeat with the next batch.

I just followed the instructions on the frosting can (Stir 20 times - I'm pretty sure I stirred more than that).

Frost cupcakes (I used a piping bag and small round tip). I've lost all my piping tips except this small round one. :( As you can see, I'm not very good with frosting. hehe

Using a bag, place a few Oreos (the other half) & crush using a rolling pin. I let my baby beat it! Sprinkle the fine crumbs on top of the frosting.

Cut 24 whole pieces of Mint Oreos in half and place it on top of the cupcake.

I cut one in half for a photo and ate it. All the kids at Logan's preschool notice the missing "one" haha
