The classic cookies n' cream cupcakes are typically vanilla cupcakes with chocolate cookies mixed in and topped with a cookies n' cream frosting. I've seen plenty of recipes for this and usually, it calls for Oreo cookies. Since there are different varieties of Oreo cookies, did you know that you can use them as well? Say for strawberry Oreos and make the most delicious chocolate covered strawberry Oreo cupcakes!
These cupcakes aren't your usual Oreo cupcakes, but they are delicious! Same goes with the usual Oreo cupcakes, the vanilla cupcakes are packed with crushed strawberry Oreos, so you get the strawberry flavor in every bite. Additionally, you can also mix in some freeze-dried strawberries for an enhanced flavor. If you don't have this, you can omit it. But if you'd really like a stronger strawberry flavor in it, add in two teaspoons of strawberry extract. Finally, top with a delicious Oreo buttercream.
Aside from mixing in crushed strawberry Oreo in the batter, you can add an Oreo cookie at the bottom of each liner instead. This will give your cupcakes a kind of crust!
Since you have this simple recipe, you can always use your favorite Oreo cookie for this. You can use chocolate Oreo, golden cookie Oreo, mint creme Oreo, and a lot more!
