For the cupcakes:
- 3 heaped tbsp of cocoa powder
- Splash of milk
- Handful of dark chocolate chips
- A packet of Oreos
For the frosting:
- 50g butter
- 250g cream cheese
- 600g icing sugar
- Half a pack of crushed Oreos
Follow my basic cake recipe, then add the cocoa powder, milk and choc chips.
Roughly chop half a packet of Oreos and fold it in to the mixture.
Line a muffin tin with 12 cases, and put an Oreo in the bottom of each one.
Fill up the cases with the cake mix and pop them in the oven for 25 minutes at gas mark 5.
Whilst they're in the oven, start on the frosting. Beat the butter and cream cheese until it's soft and combined.
Keep beating the frosting, and sift in the icing sugar gradually.
When all the icing sugar is mixed in, stir in the crushed Oreos.
Put the mixture in a piping bag and pop it in the fridge until your cakes are out of the oven and cooled fully.
Pipe the icing in lovely big swirls and pop a mini Oreo (or jammy dodger, in my case) on top.
It's best to leave them uncovered for a few hours so that the icing hardens up on the outside.
