Oreo and Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I made these lovely little gems for the super bowl (hence the bright blue color). I am a big Giants fan and I wanted to make something delicious for the game! How can you beat peanut butter and Oreo’s stuffed inside of a cupcake? Surprisingly, they were very easy to make and very fun to eat!

I wish I had a better picture. This was the only one I got.

Here’s the recipe:

1 box cake/cupcake mix
24 Oreo Cookies
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Optional: food coloring (clearly I used blue)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 12 muffin cup baker with paper liners.

2. Prepare cupcake mix according to package directions. If you want to add food coloring to your batter, do so now (remember a few drop goes a long way). For each cupcake cup spread 1 teaspoon of peanut butter over 2 Oreo cookies and stack them on top of each other. Spoon 2 Tablespoons of cupcake batter over each stacked Oreos and let it run down the sides of the cookies. If you have left over cupcake batter, bake separately in a separate baker or muffin tin. Bake cookies and cupcakes for 18 to 20 minutes, until brownies are cooked through. Let cool completely then serve.

Makes 12 servings
