Oreo Cupcakes

Oreo are my weakness. You could probably tell from my Oreo Brownies and Chocolate Oreo Cake recipes. So what's left? Cupcakes of course!
When my aunt volunteered me to make 100 cupcakes (yes, 100!) for the youth group at church, I figured these would go over pretty well. The frosting is rich and creamy, and very yummy! Plus, what kid (or adult) doesn't love Oreos?? You really can't go wrong with these cupcakes and they are simple to make...enjoy! :)

Oreo Cupcakes
1 pkg. (2-layer size) devil's food cake mix
1 cup Greek yogurt, fat free
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brewed coffee, cooled 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24 muffin cups with paper bake cups, set aside.

Stir together cake mix, Greek yogurt, coffee, and water. Fill cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake 20-24 minutes, or until tooth-pick inserted comes out clean. Cool cupcakes completely before frosting.

Oreo Frosting:
1 (2 sticks) cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1-2 Tablespoons milk
4 cups powdered sugar
15 Oreos, finely crushed (I used my food processor)

In a large bowl cream butter, vanilla and milk. Slowly add in powdered sugar until creamy and fluffy. Mix in crushed oreos until well combined. Frost cupcakes and top with half of an Oreo cookie.
