Oreo Wedding Cupcakes

I made cupcakes for a friend for her wedding. The theme of the wedding was “Til Death Do Us Part.” Quite perfect since it was the weekend before Halloween! All decor and attire was black and white. Very stunning! It was fun to get to make them and be there to enjoy their special day too!

The cupcake liners I purchased from The Tomkat Studio Store and from Fancy Flours.

I made white cupcakes with Golden Oreos in the bottoms and Golden Oreo frosting.

The other half were chocolate cupcakes with regular Oreos in the bottoms and in the frosting.

Me being a non-chocolate gal, I of course picked a Golden Oreo cupcake at the wedding. YUM.

I used 8 packages of Oreos. I made my husband buy them for me because that’s pretty embarrassing. Oh, and I only use Double Stuft, cuz duh.

Oreo Pops

These are SO easy to make. And who doesn’t love Oreos? I’ve been buying a lot of Oreos lately. You’ll see what I mean later this week.

Twist Oreos open, and push sticks into the Double Stuft filling. Add a dab of candy melts, then top with the twisted off cookie.

Pop them into the fridge to set up. This only takes a couple minutes.

Then dip the Oreos into the candy melts, making sure to fully cover.

I melted a second color to add a little drizzle, but sprinkles would look great too!

I covered the regular Oreos in purple and the Golden Oreos in orange. Obviously these were for Halloween, but they are so easy to make that they could be any color and perfect for any party!

Birthday Cake Golden Oreo Truffles

These are a twist on the Cookies & Cream Truffles I made a while back. This time I used Birthday Cake Golden Oreos.

20140716-072558-26758948.jpg

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.

20140630-185852-68332201.jpg

So pretty!

Pot O’ Gold at the End of the Rainbow Cupcakes

I’ve made Rainbow Cupcakes before. (That post is almost 3 years old. If you want to see what a long way I’ve come in 3 years, peruse away. 😁 )

These rainbow cupcakes take it up a notch, because there’s something golden at the end of the rainbow….

Golden Oreos that is. 😜

These are simmmmmmmple.

Make up some cake. White makes prettier rainbows, but yellow will work too. (I used yellow. Just had to add more coloring to get the shades I wanted.)

Divide the batter into 6 bowls. Or however many different colors you want. If you hate one particular color you can leave it out. I won’t judge.

Color each bowl a different color of the rainbow.

Scrape the batter into individual baggies. Freezer bags work better cuz they’re a little thicker, but regular baggies will be okay if that’s all you have.

Place a golden Oreo in the base of each cupcake liner.

20140316-223434.jpg

Cut a small corner off of each baggy. Starting with purple (or whichever color you want last), squeeze a small amount on top of each Oreo. Try to make as thin and as even/flat of a layer as possible. It helps to shake the pan a little side-to-side to get it evened out (though you only want to do that for the bottom layer). Thin is the key here though – we have 6 colors/layers to go and we don’t want to overfill the liners.

20140316-223444.jpg

Go to blue, or whichever color you want next, and add another thin, flat layer, cover most of the purple if you can. Start by going around the outside then fill in (see picture of me doing green above). This ensures that the outside out the cupcake shows all the colors no matter what.

Repeat with all the colors.

The finished product should be about 2/3 the way full.

Now is the time to preheat the oven to 350*. Let the cupcakes sit out for 10 minutes before putting them in the oven. Seriously. It helps make the tops bake up more round and less nipple-like. You all know what I’m talking about.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean.

I waited 10 minutes and mine still came out looking like nipples. *sigh*

20140316-223452.jpg

Top with white or green or whatever color frosting you want. White would be good if you’re going for ‘clouds.’ I did a pale green for St. Patty’s Day! Here is my Easy Buttercream Recipe that I used for mine.

(This is my favorite marshmallow frosting that would be good too, and more cloud like!)

20140316-223501.jpg

Pretty rainbow cupcake looking all innocent…. Then SURPRISE! Oreo. Bam.

20140316-223505.jpg

Not only do these look pretty, but that cookie on the bottom really gives them something special!

I’m pretty obsessed with these if you can’t tell. Allllll the colorrrrssss!

Cookies and Cream Blondies

Hello friends!
Remember me? That girl that used to bake and blog about it?
*sigh*
So I had this baby. (Who I’m so completely in love with by the way.)
I’m also back to work full-time, which means basically no time for sugar, butter, and flour.
BUT. My brother was home for Christmas, and I promised him I’d bake him something.

20140103-184445.jpg

Cookies and Cream Blondies adapted from my favorite blondie recipe

Ingredients:
2 sticks butter (I use salted)
2 cups packed brown sugar (I used light)
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
Dash of salt
2 cups flour
Entire pack of Double Stuf Oreos, crushed

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Melt butter. Beat with brown sugar until smooth.
3. Beat in vanilla and egg.
4. Add salt, then stir in flour until fully incorporated.
5. Mix in Oreo crumbles by hand.
6. Spray a 13×9 pan with non-stick spray, then pour batter into pan. Spread the top as even as possible.

20140103-184437.jpg
7. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting so that the ooey gooey inside can set.

At first I thought I out too much Oreos in it because the batter was SO thick. I was worried it wouldn’t bake up well.
WOW I was wrong. These were amazing!
My brother claims that they are his favorite thing I’ve ever made. 🙂

Funfetti Oreo Surprise Cookies

My brother is away in the military. He’s been gone for almost 5 months now, and I am missing him like crazy! Before he left he lived with me. We are very close! My parents went to visit him, so I had to bake him up something yummy to send with them since I couldn’t go along.

I had a hard time coming up with something. Not because he’s picky (he loves anything with sugar in it), but because it had to travel well. They weren’t flying, so it didn’t need to be packed up necessarily, but it couldn’t be something that had to be refrigerated, or something that could melt (and when it’s 110 degrees here that’s nearly everything). Also, he’s not that into sugar cookies so I didn’t want to go there.

Somehow I arrived at the idea for these cookies, and I knew he would love them!

Funfetti Oreo Surprise Cookies makes about 20 large cookies

Ingredients:

1 1/2 sticks salted butter (3/4 cup)

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking powder

scant 1/2 tsp salt

2 cups + 2 tbsp flour

1 cup dry funfetti cake mix

1/4 cup jimmies (the long sprinkles)

1 pack regular (aka Double Stuf) oreos

20130702-211343.jpg

Directions:

1. Cream together butter and sugar. (I like to cut my butter up into chunks first so that I don’t have to wait for it to come to room temperature.)

2. Add eggs and vanilla and beat to combine. Scrape bowl if necessary.

3. Keeping mixer on low speed, add salt and baking powder. Slowly add flour then dry funfetti cake mix.

4. I kneaded my extra sprinkles in by hand, but I guess you can do it with the mixer. It might just chop them up a bit instead of leaving large sprinkle pieces.

20130702-211336.jpg

5. Grab about a 2 tbsp size ball of the dough. Flatten it in your palm, then place an oreo in the center. Shape the dough around the oreo, making sure to cover it completely. It helped to kind of roll it around in my hand to smooth it out and to make sure it was totally covered.

20130702-211526.jpg

6. Space about 2″ apart on baking sheet, and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350* or until edges start to turn golden. Cookies will be super puffed up, but will flatten a little as they cool. Wait 5-10 minutes to move them to a cooling rack so they can set up.

20130702-211539.jpg

He loved them. 🙂

20130704-053141.jpg

Next time, I’m going to try to find those little mini oreos so I can make mini versions!

Slutty Brownies

Don’t let the name fool you – these brownies are a very good thing.

I don’t know where the name came from, but it’s a real thing so I figured it made more sense to leave it be. Especially when they’re this good.

Let’s get right to it, shall we?

Just a quick note – There are multiple layers to these, so I listed some of the same ingredients twice. They’re listed in the order that you need them. Don’t be scared by the long list, these are easy! I put a line between each layer to help break it up.

Slutty Browniesadapted from this recipe

Ingredients:

1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup), melted & slightly cooled

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg + 1 egg yolk

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups + 2 tbsp flour

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

————————————————————–

1 ENTIRE pack of regular (aka Double Stuf) oreos – seriously don’t even eat one or two, you will be short!)

————————————————————–

1 cup vegetable oil

2 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla

4 eggs

1 cup flour

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

1. First layer is chocolate chip cookie. Mix together melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Add the egg and egg yolk, and the vanilla, scraping the bowl if necessary. Mix in baking soda and salt, then slowly add the flour. Mix in the chocolate chips by hand.

2. Spray a 13×9″ pan with non-stick cooking spray. Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the pan. (My honey helped me.)

20130702-211243.jpg

3. Press the oreos into the chocolate chip cookie dough. You might have to spread them out a little to make sure there is oreo across the whole surface. Might even have to break some in half to reach the bottom.

20130702-211254.jpg

4. Time to make the brownie batter! Mix together the oil and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add to wet mixture.

5. Carefully pour batter over oreos, making sure to cover them completely. Use a spatula to push batter into the corners and between all the oreos.

20130702-211303.jpg

*I was feeling fancy so I added sprinkles. Totally optional. But let’s face it, everything is better with sprinkles*

20130702-211311.jpg

6. Bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes. Check the doneness by sticking a toothpick in between where the oreos are to make sure the brownie batter is cooked thoroughly. Let cool completely before cutting. Seriously, let them cool.

I made these the night before going camping, and we didn’t have them until the 3rd night. I just covered the entire pan in foil and waited patiently!

Cookies and Cream Marshmallows

These are soooo good. My 2nd favorite mallow flavor, and my brother’s #1 favorite. (Funfetti still tops my list.)

Make vanilla mallows according to this recipe. When all the whipping is done, stir in 1/2 cup crushed Oreo cookies. Instead of using powder to coat the sticky mallows, I used more crushed cookies!

Cookies & Cream Truffles

a.k.a. Oreo Balls or Oreo Truffles.

Chances are, you have had these, or at least seen or heard of them. This is not some new idea or concept that I created. But they are brilliant. And easy. And oh so yummy.

Let’s get started.

We just need 3 ingredients.

An entire pack of oreos. If you must eat one, just buy the 2nd bag. Trust me, you want all the oreo goodness of the entire bag in this!

An 8 oz. block of cream cheese. I used 1/3 less fat. Can’t even tell the difference, so might as well be somewhat healthier, right?

Candy Melts. One bag was not quite enough. You could also use regular chocolate chips, or almond bark. I couldn’t find almond bark at my grocery store so I went with candy melts.

20120218-144947.jpg

Chop up the oreos in a food processor. If you don’t have one, you could put them in a big zip top baggie and smash them. They don’t have to be perfect smithereens, they will still be amazing.

20120218-145243.jpg

Mix the oreo crumbs and cream cheese together. I used my Sheila, but a wooden spoon would also be fine.

20120218-145328.jpg

Pop that in the fridge for 10 minutes or so to  firm up a tad.

Roll into balls, set on a wax paper lined baking sheet, and pop it back in the fridge.

At this point I made sugar cookies, so the balls probably sat in my fridge for over 2 hours. I would think 20 minutes would be sufficient though.

Once the balls are chilled, melt your candy melts (or chocolate) and dip the balls one at a time into the candy with a fork, tapping the excess off on the side of the bowl. They don’t have to be perfect.

I started off doing okay, they were looking pretty cleanly/perfectly dipped, but then a couple balls got scraped and the oreo started mixing into the candy melts. I almost started stressing but then I realized it made them look like cookies and cream, which makes perfect sense! So that’s why I decided to call these Cookies & Cream Truffles.

20120218-145318.jpg

After the balls are all coated, pop the tray back in the fridge to harden up. Once they are set, eat one. Then peel them off the wax paper and break off the excess candy if possible.

20120218-145310.jpg

Store in the fridge until ready to eat.

20120218-145014.jpg

I actually made these for my brother (by special request) for his birthday yesterday. Glad I did, they were pretty tasty!
