Instructions

Preheat oven to 350. Line 24 cupcake tins with liners. Place an Oreo in the bottom of each liner.

Fill each liner 2/3 full with batter. Bake cupcakes for 15 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched in the center. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Prepare cookie dough frosting: In the bowl of your mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, and powdered sugar on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla extract and heavy cream until combined. Beat on high for one minute, until fluffy. Fold in chocolate chips.

Using a small paring knife, cut the center out of each cupcake and fill with cookie dough frosting.

Prepare cookies n’cream frosting: In the bowl of a mixer, beat butter, cream, and vanilla on medium-low until smooth and well-combined. Slowly add powdered sugar. Once powdered sugar is barely mixed in, increase speed to medium-high and beat for 2 minutes. Fold in crushed Oreos. Add blue food coloring until desired shade is achieved. Pipe frosting on cupcakes.
