I can never resist a bargain, a snack pack of Oreo cookies was just €1:50 this week in Tesco so I couldn't leave them behind. To make these you will need all 20 biscuits. Two for the toddler in payment for helping to mix the bun mixture without breaking your favourite baking bowl, four to shovel in your mouth and gobble as fast as you can, twelve for the bottom of each cupcake case and two to crush to sprinkle on top of your buttercream icing! Am sure these will go down as well in your house as they did in mine!
You will need;
120g butter, softened
120g caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
90g self raising flour
30g cocoa powder
14 Oreo cookies (+6, wink, wink)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees & line your cupcake tins with cases. Place an Oreo cookie at the base of each.
Cream the butter & sugar together.
Add in half the beaten eggs, combine.
Add in a tablespoon of sieved flour.
Stir in remaining eggs.
Add the rest of the flour and the cocoa powder, lightly stir.
Add the milk and give a final stir.
Spoon equal amounts into each case.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
150g icing sugar
50g cocoa powder
100g softened butter
Mix all ingredients together to make a stiff icing.
Spoon into an icing bag fitted with a Wilton 1M icing nozzle.
Pipe a swirl of icing on top of each bun.
Decorate with two Oreo cookies which you have crushed into crumbs! Nice little treat to have with a glass of ice cold milk, great twist to the usual cookies!
