Ore-oh!

Making these treats for someone else was such pure joy for me because they contain a hidden Oreo surprise at the bottom of each cupcake. Well … actually that’s a lie. Let me rephrase, “these treats were such a joy for me to make then eat … in one sitting.”

And if you have the strength to make a batch without stuffing your pie hole with the whole lot of them, I’m sure the recipient would be forever grateful for your very kind gesture. I’m mean, come on! Who doesn’t love Oreos?!
