Mint Oreo Cupcakes

Mint Oreo Cupcakes recipe pictures This week was the 100th birthday of the Oreo. Happy birthday my dear friend! To honor the occasion they created a new Oreo flavor, cake batter. I have seen cake batter Oreos popping up on multiple blogs recently. I was pretty excited to get my hands on some. I love Oreos and I love cake batter, so I had high hopes for cake batter Oreos. But do you think I could find any? No!!! I looked at Target (twice) and a large grocery store by my house. No luck. I am not giving up though; I will find a package. Have you guys tried them? Are they good?

Since we couldn’t find any cake batter Oreos we decided to go with mint flavored green Oreos in honor of St. Patrick’ Day. I’d say it worked out quite nicely. My favorite flavor of ice cream has long been mint chocolate chip. I enjoy the chocolate/mint combo almost as much as the chocolate/peanut butter combo. I think the chocolate/mint combo is a love it or hate it flavor pairing. This is one of my favorite frostings we have made. It tastes like cookies and cream with mint. And I really liked the Oreo “crust,” too. If you do not like the chocolate/mint combo feel free to substitute plain Oreos or cake batter Oreos if you can find them.

    I have had the birthday oreos, they are fantastic! The filling tastes like buttercream icing and there are sprinkles in it. Win win win
