3 Exotic Oreo Cupcakes That Could Change Your Life

I love Oreos and I love cupcakes. I also love exotic Oreo flavors and experimenting with junk food to create scarily delicious edible concoctions. So I put my skills to good use and came up with three breeds of exotic Oreo cupcakes. For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you are probably very aware of my recent crazy Oreo cupcake binge. For those of you that don’t, you’re about to learn a lot about what I do when I come home to the suburbs for a day. Here are my crazy cupcakes and how to make them.

Tips to keep in mind before you get started :

  • Wear baggy clothes because you won’t be able to stop yourself from eating the Oreos in front of you, tasting the batter, and “taste testing” your cupcakes.
  • Make a few extra cupcakes because you will “taste test” at least 4
  • If you live alone, invite friends over
  • If you have no friends, donate the cupcakes you can’t eat to the homeless

I honestly just threw a bunch of stuff into the bowl and kept mixing until it tasted good. But here is what you can do for a buttercream banana peanut butter frosting. I actually ended up using flour to thicken my frosting, something that is weird but tasted really good.

1) Get a mixer or bowl.
2) Beat together 1/2 cup peanut butter, banana, and 1 stick of butter.
3) Add powdered sugar and 3 pinches of salt. (If this tastes too sweet, keep adding salt to equalize).
4) This is optional and something weird that I did. The consistency of my batter was very buttery, so I added a touch of baking flour to the mix to give it a thicker consistency. I liked it and it ended up tasting very good.
5) Taste your icing to make sure the powdered sugar didn’t make it too sweet. If so, add more peanut butter and salt.

If my recipe scares you, here’s another from Cookooree.
