The Best Party Recipe: Oreo Mini Cupcakes

Oreo cupcakes recipe blog Findianlife

I have been baking cupcakes since I lent a cupcake guide book by Ingrid Hancock Bjerknes from the library. I made these mini Oreo cupcakes for a party last weekend and they were super delicious! The mini size is perfect for a small sweet bite, and the frosting is so much easier to pipe on top of them.

RECIPE BELOW


OREO MINI CUPCAKES 26PC

FOR THE MINI MUFFINS:

2 eggs

50g unsalted butter

1 1/4 dl brown sugar

70g dark chocolate melted

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/4 dl flour

1 tsp baking powder

a pinch of baking soda

1 1/4 dl milk

3 Oreos crushed


METHOD:

  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or on the stove stirring in between.
  2. Whisk room-temperature butter and sugar with an electric whisk. Add each egg whisking in between.
  3. Add the melted chocolate and vanilla extract. Stir together.
  4. Shift in flour, baking powder and soda. Alternate stirring and adding the milk as well.
  5. Crush the Oreos in a pestle & mortar (or in a ziplock bag using a rolling bin to smash them) and add them to the mixture.
  6. Add mini sized muffin cases to a 24-cavity mini muffin tin and fill the cavities 2/3 full.
  7. Bake in 180 degrees celcius oven in the middle section for 10-12 minutes.
  8. After baking let them sit in the muffin tin for 5-10 minutes before removing. Let cool completely before frosting.

FOR THE FROSTING:

75g unsalted butter

4-5 dl icing sugar

1 2/3-2 tbsp milk

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

3 well crushed Oreos


METHOD:

  1. Whip room-temperature butter and sugar.
  2. Add in vanilla & milk.
  3. Fold in well crushed Oreos (they need to be small crumbs, if you’re using using a piping bag for frosting)
  4. Adjust accordingly: if frosting is too runny, add more icing sugar. If it seems too hard, add more milk. It should be quite hard.
  5. Frost the mini muffins with a piping bag & tip.
