Dark Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

It is my co-worker's last day at work tomorrow before she leaves for a new job, and she always loves my baked treats. I decided to make her some dark chocolate cookies and cream cupcakes, but I didn't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. I wish I could say I made these from scratch, but I had a little help from Pillsbury. I used the dark chocolate cake mix and added 1 1/2 cups crushed Oreos to the cake mix (prepared according to package instructions). I topped it off with some vanilla frosting and some more crushed Oreos. Hope everyone had a great Monday!!

Thanks Meg for the instructions. How long does it take to make? and how many cupcakes?

These look amazing!

Megan, did you know... back in the day.. Oreos were made with Lard? Yeah! And my Dad was a vegetarian so I called The company and raised a HUGE stink! I was a teenager! What a rebel I was! I also refused to eat tuna when I was 5 because they caught dolphins in net! (that's how my veggie career started! hahha)
