  • 2 ½ Cups Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 ½ Cups Butter
  • 1 ½ Cups Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 30 Oreos
  • 1 Cup CreamyPeanut Butter
  • 1 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips (optional)
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. (Mine was already heating up.)

    Step 2

    Gather your ingredients! The last four in the supply list are for the frosting.

    Step 3

    Mix your vanilla, cocoa powder, and hot water together until smooth.

    Step 4

    In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt.

    Step 5

    Mix your butter and sugar until it's shiny.

    Step 6

    Then add your eggs and blend again.

    Step 7

    Alternate adding the cocoa and flour mixtures to the butter mixture.

    Step 8

    All done with the batter! 🌚🌚🌚 (I added a good amount of mini chocolate chips to it, but that's optional.)

    Step 9

    Put a spoonful of batter in each cup. Not too much!

    Step 10

    Smear peanut butter on the top of an Oreo, and smoosh it down onto the batter.

    Step 11

    Now put another, smaller, spoonful of batter on top.

    Step 12

    Bake them for 17-20 minutes. All done! So pretty!

    Step 13

    Now for the topping. Smash up six Oreos. Not too much though! Just enough to sill be able to tell that it's Oreos. I threw in a few mini chocolate chips. Again; optional.

    Step 14

    These are your frosting ingredients.

    Step 15

    Mix the peanut butter and butter together until shiny.

    Step 16

    Now add your powdered sugar.

    Step 17

    Put a small amount of icing on each COOLED cupcake.

    Step 18

    Now press it in the Oreo crumbs. Yummy!

    Step 19

    Cut it open and find delicious layers of Oreo and peanut butter. 😻
