Oreo Mint Cupcakes


I tried another cupcake creation. It shouldn't surprise any of us that it turned out delicious. Cupcakes are delicious.

Oreo Mint Cupcakes

Cake:
1 box chocolate cake mix

Filling:
1 cup whipping cream
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. mint
1/2 cup finely crushed oreo crumbs

Frosting:
2 lb powdered sugar
3/4 cups shortening
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp. mint
Green food coloring
1/2 cup finely crushed oreo crumbs

Prepare cupcakes according to box cake mix instructions. While they are cooling prepare filling. Beat whipping cream, sugar, vanilla and mint until stiff peaks start to form. Stir in crushed oreos. Use a cake decorating bag to pipe the cream into the center of the cupcake. Use a serrated tip and poke into the top of the cupcake-- squeeze filling in until you feel the cupcake start to bulge. (if you don't have a piping bag you can also cut a hole into your cupcake and spoon the filling in. It doesn't have to be pretty, you'll cover it with frosting). Prepare frosting. Mix powdered sugar, shortening, vanilla, milk and mint until smooth. Add a few drops of green food coloring and mix. Stir in oreo crumbs. Use a piping bag to swirl frosting on top. Poke an oreo in the frosting for added decor.
