Neapolitan Oreo Cupcakes

I have a pretty awesome surprise for you. Totally awesome, actually. Did you know that Oreo now makes Neapolitan Oreos? Ohhh yes, they do. The day I found out, well, I may have screamed a little bit. Melissa, Founder and Editor of Best Friends for Frosting, mentioned their existence, and I may have hopped in the car two minutes later in search of them.

Now, I’m here to tell you that Neapolitan Oreos are magical. They’re triple layered using vanilla cookies, with chocolate and strawberry cream. I’m telling you, that’s magical. And because they’re so great, I knew that they would dress up a cupcake very nicely.

Yes, I was right. I added crushed Neapolitan Oreos to my favorite white cake batter, baked them, let them cool, then topped them with a swirled chocolate and strawberry icing. Hello, magic!

Neapolitan Oreo Cupcakes

1 batch of white cake batter

10 Neapolitan Oreos, crushed

Preheat your oven to 350 (or other time specified by your cake recipe)

Add the crushed Oreo pieces to your batter and stir. Scoop the batter into a greased or lined cupcake pan. Bake for 20-22 minutes (or as directed by your cake recipe)

If you wish the swirl the icings, like I did, simply alternate flavors as your add the icing to your piping bag. Add one scoop of strawberry, then chocolate, then another strawberry, and you’ll get the hang of it!
