Cookies & Cream Cupcakes | Recipe

 I was feeling a bit nostalgic yesterday so I popped back to see what I posted around this time last year. There was a post about how excited and happy I was that I had started a blog, and even though I’ve been neglecting it recently, I am still so happy I made the decision to give it a go. I also noticed this recipe which I posted exactly one year ago so I thought I would make these cupcakes again today. Be sure to tweet me a picture if you give them a go.

For Cupcakes:

175g of self raising flour
110g of butter
110g of caster sugar
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 large eggs
50g  chocolate chips
50ml milk
For Cookies & Cream frosting: 

250ml of fresh cream
25g of icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
8 Oreo cookies, crushed



1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C and place 12 paper cases into a cupcakes tray.

2. Add all the dry ingredients (but not the chocolate chips) to a bowl and mix. 
3. Break 2 eggs into the centre of the mixture.  
4. Combine all ingredients.  
5. Add in half the milk and continue to beat.  You aim to achieve a light and creamy batter, use the remain milk to achieve this consistency, if needed.

6. Spoon the mixture into the cupcakes cases and bake for 15-20 minutes or until baked thoroughly.
7.Allow to cool on a wire rack before applying the cookies and cream frosting.
8.For the frosting, beat the cream, vanilla extract, and icing sugar until it’s thick.  
9.Fold in the oreo crumbs, gently. 
10.Spoon onto the cooled cupcakes. Extra Oreo crumbs can be sprinkled over the top.




I am a huge Oreo fan so these went down a treat in my house!


Until next time,

  1. Ok, ok – so when are you coming over to mine to help me bake these little babies then!!! They look delish!!!! I’m afraid I’m not a very good cook let alone baker but I really must try – if only to get the girls to do some messy stirring and for me to sneak away and kick the bowl!!! Thank you so much for linking up with #SundayStars. Xx Steph xx

  2. I love an Oreo cookie too. Last night, I tried Cadbury’s Oreo cookie chocolate for the first time. It is amazing. I’m to have to make these cupcakes soon. They look yummy! Thanks for linking up with #SundaysStars. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
