Simply Baking: Oreo Cupcakes

Perusing the net while craving Oreo cookies, I was delighted to stumble upon the beautiful foodie photos on AJ’s Cooking Secrets. It wasn’t long until I found an easy recipe for taking my favorite chocolate cookie to the next level with AJ’s recipe. After picking up a package of Oreos at the store, it was on like Donkey Kong (If you don’t get the 90s video game reference, I don’t know what to tell you).

The crowning glory was honestly the frosting. It was to die for!

A hidden oreo inside of the cupcake too!

I was slightly disappointed that the Celebrate It! cupcake liners I bought from Michaels seemed to fade in the oven. I wanted the liner to be a bright pop of color but alas, it was not. Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions?

I have this terrible habit of going to Trader Joe’s on an empty stomach and $30 later, I have an arsenal of new snacks. My newest obsession? Trader Joe’s Spinach and Kale Greek Yogurt Dip! Anyone who loves spinach dips will appreciate this dip, which was 50% less calories and fat than regular spinach dip. And I kid you not, it tastes just like it!

Any Trader Joes or specialty snacks you can’t live without?

Happy Tuesday readers!
