Mint Oreo Cupcakes

Hellllooooo there! Geesh, it feels like forever since I’ve shared a new post! Did you think maybe I had disappeared, drowned in my sprinkles, tangled in baker’s twine? No worries, I’m here, just buried behind a large pile of, paperwork, a full schedule, and a to do list far longer then I’d like to admit! A few weeks ago my oldest kiddo was super sick with Scarlet Fever (yes, it’s still around!) and ever since then I just can’t seem to catch up! So even though I’ve been a little too quiet here lately, behind the scenes it’s been crazy! I’d love to say things are going to be slowing down a bit, but that’s far from the truth! We have family flying in this week, 2 birthdays to celebrate, 2 other events to plan and host, and let’s not even talk about the hubs crazy “schedule” or lack of really. Maybe April will be bring a little less chaos?!

I’m so happy to finally have the time to sit down and share some of the treats I’ve been waiting to share with you! I made these Mint Oreo cupcakes like a month ago, I don’t even remember WHY I made them! (not that one needs a reason to bake cupcakes) Yes, it’s been just that crazy around here! Oreo cupcakes are always on the top favorites list for my test tasters but these mint flavored cupcakes are perfect for St. Patty’s day!

Step 5: While mixing, slowly sprinkle in Oreo cookie crumbs. I used about 1/3 cup but you can you more or less depending on how much Oreo flavor you want. Remember to save a little to sprinkle finished cupcakes.

Step 6: Once cupcakes have cooled, pipe icing onto cupcakes and sprinkle with remaining Oreo crumbs.

  1. Sounds like you’ve had a crazy month. I had scarlet fever as a kid and it lasted quite a while and was miserable. I do hope your kiddo is feeling better now and that no one else in the family gets it!

    Your cupcakes look wonderful.

  2. Get out of my dreams and into my mouth!

  3. Wow! I feel for you! Hope things improve quickly. The cupcake looks amazing!

  4. These look great. I hope you got to take your time, relax, and enjoy eating one.

  5. These were a huge hit; thank you for posting the recipe!

    I froze them unfrosted, and they turned out great. I didn’t need as much frosting as this, but we are saving the extra ;) Also, I should have waited to gently fold the cookie crumbs into the frosting at the end, as when I whipped them in, they turned everything a brownish color. But everyone still loved them (all 72 of them!)

  6. Am making these for St. Patrick’s Day this year!
