O.M.G. Just when I thought I’ve made enough cupcakes, this Triple Oreo Cookie Cupcakes recipe totally reignited my engine. One warning: They are not for the faint-hearted Oreo Cupcake fans. I’m S-E-R-I-O-U-S.
The cupcakes are stuffed with a piece of Oreo in each of them, a substantial amount of ground Oreo bits are added into the buttercream and finally, each cupcake is topped with another piece of Oreo. They are taking indulgence to a brand new level and it takes one super-duper Oreo fan to absolutely appreciate them. Break out your mixer and try it out yourself!

Preheat oven to 170°C/340°F.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, malt powder, caster sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and pinch of salt.
Add in soften unsalted butter and eggs.
Using a handheld mixer or stand mixer, mix at low speed until combined. Turn up to high speed and continue to whisk for 1 min.
Turn down speed to low again and add in milk and vanilla extract. Turn up speed and give it a final mix for 30 secs.
Line 12 cupcake liners in a muffin tin and place one Oreo cookie into each mold follow by a dollop of batter (filling about ¾ of the cupcake liner).
Bake for 22 mins. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before frosting.
In a large mixing bowl, add in soften unsalted butter and whisk it on high speed for 5 mins. We want the butter to be fluffy.
Add in the icing sugar and mix on low speed until combined. Turn up speed to high and continue to whisk for 2 mins, until light and fluffy.
Turn down the speed of the mixer and add in milk and vanilla extract. Continue to mix for 30 secs.
Lastly, add in Oreo powder and mix until well combined.
Fill the Oreo buttercream in a piping bag fitted with a star tip and frost onto each cupcake.
Finish off by sticking a piece of Oreo on top of the frosting.
