I decided to post my Oreo Surprise recipe as well for The Mrs. Recipe Hop. My Oreo Surprise cakes are my most requested item. In fact, just yesterday a few ladies from work began nagging me about bringing some in to share.
So try these out..They are sure to be a hit! They certainly are for my cake customers!
Here's What You Will Need:
This recipe makes 2 dozen cakes.
-one box of chocolate cake mix. Follow directions on box-Mix and blend as directed.-1 package(s) (8-oz.) cream cheese, softened
-1 cup of sugar
-Large selection of mini Oreo cookies. You probably only need about 48 but I like to garnish mine a little more than your average person. Always goes over well!
-About 2 tubs of cool whip or whipped topping. NO SPRAY whipped cream..this will melt.
Here's What You Do:
-Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 24 cupcake tins with paper or foil muffin cups.-Prepare cake batter as directed on package; set aside.
-In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, egg and sugar until well blended.
-Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling about halfway. Top each with about 1/2 Tbsp. of the cream-cheese mixture and 1 mini cookie. Spoon more cake batter over the tops to cover the cream cheese and cookie.
-Bake 19 to 22 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
-MOST IMPORTANT:Let cupcakes cool completely. I would let them sit on a rack for about 45 mintues or more. This is important because if you add the whipped cream topping to even a slightly warm cake it will make the whipped cream watery and it will melt and just make a mooshy mess.
-Frost the cupcakes with whipped topping.-Garnish the tops with mini oreos. I use two and then I take left overs and crunch them up and sprinkle the bits on top.
