Peanut Butter Oreo Cupcakes

It’s not easy turning down a peanut butter oreo, so it’s definitely not easy to turn down a peanut butter oreo cupcake! (Trust me, no one has turned these down.) The cake is moist and rich. The frosting is sweet and the finely chopped peanut butter oreos add the perfect amount of crunch. The oreo on top is, uh, it’s a peanut butter oreo – enough said. You’re going to love this recipe and this cupcake! Peanut Butter lovers get ready!

PB Cupcake

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pans. Makes 24 cupcakes.

2. In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt butter in microwave for 1 minute on high.

3. Add coffee, cocoa powder, and vanilla. Whisk until combined. Set aside to cool slightly.

4. In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together.

5. In electric mixer, mix sour cream and eggs.

6. Slowly add chocolate mixture to the sour cream mixture. (make sure you add slowly)

7. Add flour mixture to wet mixture in increments.

8. Fold in crushed Oreos.

9. Fill cupcake cups about 2/3 full and bake for 20 minutes.

Note: Allow to cool before frosting – It’s best to leave them in the pan for 5-7 minutes before removing.

Peanut Butter Oreo Buttercream:

1. In electric mixer, cream peanut butter and butter together for about 2 minutes.

Note: Make sure you scrape down sides several times.

2. Add powdered sugar and mix on medium.

3. Add heavy cream and salt. Continue to mix until smooth and fluffy. Beat on high for 1-2 minutes.

4. Fold in finely crushed Oreos.

Note: I use a Wilton Open Star Tip to pipe my frosting – #6B. It’s best to use an open tip because small pieces of the cookie will get caught if not.

5. Top with a piece of a Peanut Butter Oreo.
