Cupcake Series (mini), Part 3: Chocolate Oreo



These cupcakes are Chocolate Oreo cupcakes.....another words my version of a chocolate cupcake that I thought I could improve on!  :)

Recipe for Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 ounce milk chocolate, melted
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped oreos

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Line muffin cups with liners.
2. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  In another bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter and eggs until light and fluffy--about 3 minutes.
3.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.  Beat in the melted chocolates. Reduce speed to low.  Add the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk in batches, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.  Beat just until blended.  Stir in vanilla.  Stir in Oreos with a wooden spoon, until well incorporated.
4. Spoon batter into a Ziploc bag, and seal tightly.  Snip off a corner, and pipe into prepared liners.  Fill about two-thirds full.  Repeat with the remaining batter.  Bake until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean, about 15 to 20 minutes.  Remove the cupcakes from the baking pan, place on wire rack to cool completely.
Frost as you desire!!!!
For mine, I used a cream cheese frosting which can be found in this post near the bottom of the page.
Hope you enjoy!
I have but one recipe left in this series...in my opinion, I'm saving the best for last...don't forget to check out the previous cupcakes in this series.  Lemon-poppy seed and Snickerdoodle!
After that I have planned a few refashions, which I'm super excited about, and who knows what other good stuff may be thrown in along the way! :)
