Oreo Brownie Cupcakes...double stuff stylie!

I had a craving for Oreo cupcakes this weekend.  Byron had a craving for brownies - so what did we do? combine the two! I made my favourite Martha Stewart Brownie cupcakes and added some crushed Oreo into the mix....

...then I lined each cupcake case with half an Oreo cookie, this is one of my favourite tricks.  This time I made it even better by using a Double Stuff cookie half and oh wow it made such a difference! Double the yumminess for sure!

Then I spooned the cupcake mix into the cases, nearly right to the top (as brownies don't really rise all that much)...

...and this is how they looked when they came out the oven.

I made another Caribbean baking error though.  I took my cream cheese and butter for the frosting out of the fridge well ahead of time, thinking I was still back in England!, so of course by the time I got around to making the frosting they were both completely melted! So my frosting wasn't thick enough to form nice frosting peaks, I just slapped it on with a knife but it still tasted great.

I thought I'd show off a little more of the beautiful scenery I am surrounded with here in Turks and Caicos, so that's the canal our house backs on to in the background of the pic! Enjoy!


  1. Looks amazing. I made oreo cupcakes and oreo truffles at the weekend. Love the background :)

  2. these look so good! I think the frosting looks nice that way and I like the way its so white - anything would look great with that background! xxxx i love the cases too - goes well with your background!

  3. I just don't think this combination can be beaten! Maybe apple and cinnamon type things if you're in the mood...but these look fantastic

  4. they look so good! brownie and oreo... I'll try that ones. I'm sur emy girlfriends and colleages will love me for it :)

  5. Just found your blog- I'm a cupcake aficionado myself. :)
