I originally reviewed this wonderful recipe on Sept. 8, 2009 when it was on this site as a Kraft recipe. It bears repeating. "Delightful and delicious. And fun to make too! I made the job of filling the cupcake cups easier on myself by pouring the batter into a gallon ZipLoc bag and piping it in. Worked great! Also, I found I could use a little more than the 1/2 T. of filling, if that helps. I baked them for the minimum recommended baking time and they were perfectly moist. I did use the mini Oreos, after finally finding them in the fourth store I looked for them, Costco. All I could find until then were the Oreo Cakesters! I'm glad I found them, as they do look nice to top the cupcakes, but regular sized Oreos would do just fine in a pinch. I didn't use the Cool Whip, as these will be served where refrigeration is not possible. I LOVED what I ended up frosting them with - White Cake Frosting II, also from this site. Absolutely decadent, memorable, and certainly worthy of making again!"
I made these for a baby shower and it was a bit of a flop. no one seemed overly impressed. the cupcakes were better after a day in the fridge. make sure that you put enough of the cream cheese mixture in. it seemed that people thought the cookie in the middle was a lump of something that shouldnt have been there. dont think i'll be make them again.
Anything with Oreos is bound to be good and this was no exception! These were so easy to make and so adorable that I'll definitely make them again. I did find that I used a bit more of than 1/2 Tbsp. of cream cheese mixture per cupcake, but that's OK because the more the better. I didn't use Cool Whip for the frosting, but opted for "White Cake Frosting II" from this site that I've used on "Cookies 'n Cream Cake" before. It tastes just like the inside of an Oreo and it pipes beautifully. It worked great on these little beauties!
This recipe was so good!! I used Duncan Hines super moist devil food cake mix. It was so moist and fluffy. Sadly, my cream cheese mixture sunk to the bottom but it was still delicious.
These were so yummy! My son wanted vanilla cake, so I just added cocoa to the cream cheese mixture, and made chocolate frosting. They were a hit with my family, and both of my neighbors as well. Definitely making these again!!
Loved it! But when filling up the first layer of brownie mix spoon in just a little to save room for filling and Oreo mine over flowed a little.
I made my own chocolate cake vs using a box (because that's how I bake) and didn't quite make enough for all of the cream cheese mixture. It was really good, but a bit rich.
I made these for a bake sale and sold out quickly. A few people came back later to see if we still had any! I will definitely be making them again. Should have charged more for these!
