Oreo Peanut Butter Frosting


 Have you voted for the next dessert I will make yet?  Check out What's for dinner HoneyB for the poll vote and also, while your there, see what I am making in our home this week along with my fitness updates!

Ok, so I 'm a little late.   You didn't know that, but Theresa will know that when she reads this.  Yesterday was her birthday.  But since it was a weekend (and Theresa is my work friend) then she is being wished happy birthday today and will be receiving these yummy cupcakes.  Happy Birthday Theresa!  Hope it was great and hope you enjoy the cupcakes!  (See, you are special after all!) 

I made a special Oreo Peanut Butter Frosting for her cupcakes - which speaking of the cupcakes, they are my Nanny's Mayonnaise Cupcakes topped with this  yummy frosting.  (recipe for cupcake also a shared recipe on allrecipes.com if you are interested in saving it to your recipe box!)

Oreo Peanut Butter Frosting

1-1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/8 cup smooth peanut butter
2-1/2 cups confectioners sugar
4-6 tablespoons milk
4 peanut butter filled Oreo cookies, cream removed and wafer part of the cookie crushed (set both aside - cream and cookie crumbs will be used in the frosting)
Extra Oreo cookies for decorating, cut in half

With electric hand mixer, blend butter and peanut butter until smooth and creamy.  Add confectioner sugar 1/2 cup at a time, blending until completely blended each time.  Add the cream from the cookie and blend well.  Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until frosting is the creamy consistency that you like.  Fold in 1/2 of the cookie crumbs.  Decorate & enjoy!

What an amazing idea to deconstruct the Oreo cookie and use the cream in the frosting.

Two amazing flavors in one...delicious :) I've made Oreo cupcakes/frosting before, but never thought to add in the peanut butter as well. What a great idea!

Kristen said...

Seeing the words "fitness updates" and then these delicious cupcakes in the same post seems like torture :) These look fantastic - and healthy too, right? Right? :)

Everything's better with Oreo's on top!

I didn't even know that Oreo made peanut butter filled cookies...I really need to get out more. Knowing how moist mayo cakes are, those cupcakes have to be delicious!

Jessie said...

peanut butter, chocolate and oreos all in a cupcake... that sounds amazing! I love how you decorated the cupcakes and topped them with oreos. You know how much I love chocolate and peanut butter too :)
