Even though I really enjoy making the majority of our meals and treats from scratch, if there is an option that will make my life easier, there is a fair chance I’m going to take it! A little while ago I was asked to make some cupcakes for a morning tea and although I had the best intentions of creating something completely from scratch
two little people life got in the way and time was running out.
That’s where these Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes come in. The cupcake itself is a simple chocolate muffin recipe with a yummy Oreo biscuit hidden in the middle. They look pretty impressive if I do say so myself, but they honestly took around 45 minutes (aside from cooling time) to put together.
When it came time to decorate these Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes, I took a little shortcut and used store bought vanilla frosting and the leftover Oreos (apart from two I may have just had to taste test along the way) to decorate them – easy peasy!
This is also a great recipe for little people to help you out with, although you will have to watch them carefully to make sure no Oreos go missing!
What are your baking shortcuts?
