It’s been too darn long since I shared a cupcake recipe.  Let’s remedy that, shall we?  Cookies and cream is one of those flavors I have a hard time resisting in any form, be it ice cream, cheesecake, or cupcakes.  It seems you feel similarly, as it has been the most popular of all the cupcake recipes I have shared over the years (even more than cookie dough!)

However, despite its popularity, the original version seemed to cause problems for some readers.  Many people reported issues with both the cake and the frosting.  I made them countless times and they always turned out well, but I don’t like sharing a recipe that is unreliable in any way.  I revamped both the cake and the frosting for a final product that is even better than the original version, and should yield more consistent results for those who bake them.  The cupcakes are fluffy and soft, the frosting is light but holds its shape beautifully, and don’t forget the surprise Oreo at the bottom – it just makes people happy.
