Oreo Cupcakes

Oreos are a favorite treat of most kids. My daughter is obsessed with them and is constantly eating my Oreo recipe ingredients. I keep ordering more and more. Amazon must think that is all we eat. With 2 day shipping, I cannot complain too much about it. I just wish she would throw out the package so that I know how many I have left to work with.

My Oreo desserts fly out of the fridge almost as fast as the Oreos fly out of my pantry. These Deep Fried Oreos are my favorite! I love using the Birthday Oreos to fry and bring to birthday parties as a dessert. This Oreo Milkshake is also delicious and really easy to make.
