Oh, the shame...
I baked them into 12 extra large cupcakes and set them to the side.
Then I whipped up a batch of
and prepped the cupcakes to be piped with this delicious stuff
Next it was time to make the frosting.
I made a basic buttercream:
and then when it was all mixed up I added some Oreo Cookie crumbs...
I would advise you to stir the crumbs in with a spoon JUST until combined.
I added them into my stand mixer and well,
the frosting ended up a questionable color...
After your frosting is finished, it's assembly time.
Pipe on your buttercream and garnish with half a cookie.
Alright, so I took a shortcut or two,
but I dare you to try these and tell me they're not
TO DIE FOR.
