Jose turned 11 on the 4th of July! He had a pool party to celebrate, so there had to be matching cookies!

These are a twist on the Cookies & Cream Truffles I made a while back. This time I used Birthday Cake Golden Oreos.
1 full pack of Oreos crushed + 1 brick of cream cheese (I use the 1/3 less fat kind). Mix it into a dough, chill, roll, chill, dip, sprinkle. Then chill until it’s time to enjoy!
These are pretty rich, I could only handle 1 at a sitting.
My brother came to town. I promised him treats while he was here, and this was first up.
The cake is just plain-Jane vanilla. But the frosting is what’s special. It’s FULL of Oreos! I made my normal buttercream recipe, and added half a package of crushed Oreos. Why just half a package you’re wondering?
…because the other half was a little busy… Being baked into the bottom of the cupcakes!
I also made mini ones without the Oreo in the bottom. Because I only had 1 pack of Oreos, and half of them went into the frosting. Plus, mini cupcakes go further when sharing. Which my coworkers appreciate. 🙂
These cupcakes were kind of a trial-run for a wedding this fall. One of the them was taken to the bride and she approved!
