Oreo Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for a shower.  There are about 17,456,344 ways to make an Oreo cupcake....I tried two versions....easy. 
I used a chocolate boxed mix, and I poured in a little batter, added a whole cookie, then covered it with more batter and baked. 
Peek-A-Boo
I also used a white cake mix and I chopped up about 16 oreos (into 6 rough pieces). 
I left in the cream in the cupcakes when I chopped them, stirred, poured into cups, and baked. 
I used the same icing for both.  I googled cream cheese icing, and then added 6 T of crushed oreos to the icing recipe (without the cream). 
Heres the Cream Cheese Icing recipe I used...my source is 'the internet'...I don't even know anymore, except it was just some recipe site: 
8 oz cream cheese (softened), 1 stick of butter (softened), 1 T. vanilla, 4 c. powdered sugar, 2 T. heavy cream.  I had to double this, and it covered 26 cupcakes. 
I didn't add the oreo on top until about an hour or so before the party b/c they get soft fast.  The party post will be here tomorrow.

I am not a huge fan of the chocolate oreos, but my boys would love these. However, I think I might try making the peek a boo ones with a yellow butter cake and the golden cupcakes! YUM!

I hopped over from Thrilling Thursday linky party...Your oreo cupcakes look delish! My daughter LOVES Oreo cookies so much I have to find different hiding places all the time; and she's now 17 years old, and I still have to hide the bag or she will eat 'em all. I think I will bake her some of these Oreo cupcakes. Yum! I just posted a birthday party post with tropical cupcake photos. If you have a minute, I would love you to visit. http://altered-artworks.blogspot.com

I am not a huge fan of the chocolate oreos, but my sister like to eat anytime. However, I think I might try making this soon with a yellow butter cake and the golden cupcakes.
