Oreo Stuffed Brownie Cupcakes + Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

Oreo Stuffed Brownie Cupcakes

Yield: 12

Ingredients

  • 12 cupcake liners
  • 1 box of Ghirardelli brownie mix {plus necessary ingredients}
  • 12 Oreos {I used Mega-Stuffed}

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Prepare the brownie mix according to the back of the box.
  3. Line a muffin tin with liners.
  4. Place an Oreo at the bottom of each lined spot.
  5. Pour brownie batter over the Oreos and into each individual liner until the tins are all ¾ full. {You should have enough for 12 – if you have extra, just make additional cupcakes until all of the batter is gone}
  6. Bake according to the box directions, or for about 25-30 minutes.
  7. Let cool, remove from pan, and place on wire cooling rack.
  8. Once completely cooled, frost with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Icing!

Notes

I made these with a boxed mix for brownies. This was purely to keep it easy! However, if you have a tried and true brownie recipe, by all means, use it in place of the boxed mix, and just adjust baking temperature and time according to your recipe.
