How to ‘Extreme Cupcake’ {vanilla, oreo, cookie dough, hot fudge}

filed under: Cupcakes on February 12, 2016

I had zero idea what to call this post because the first word that came to my head was ridiculous. This cupcake is ridiculous. But in an awesome, over-the-top, crazy delicious kind of way. So this, my friends, is extreme cupcake(ing).

Vanilla, Oreo, Cookie Dough are just the beginning of this amazing creation!

Here is what happened.

I made up some vanilla cupcakes for a friend. (A friend in need is always a good excuse to bake!)

I had some vanilla buttercream. (I always have some. Because I always make too much.)

I made some cookie dough frosting for a project and had a bunch left over.

I bought Double Stuff Oreo’s in a weak moment.

I always have hot fudge and sprinkles in my house because that is how I roll.

And here is how I extreme cupcake:

My kids were in awe. They wondered how to eat it. They are still wondering because I was NOT sharing.

Just kidding. The easiest way to eat this sucker is grab the Oreo off the top making sure to dip it in the vanilla buttercream. Take a bite of Oreo covered in buttercream and cookie dough frosting. Take a bite of cupcake. Repeat.

    This is awesome! I love that you provided instructions on how to eat this cupcake because my reaction to see this picture was:
    1. Omg, I need to put this in my mouth right now!!!
    2. …. wait, that is not going to fit in my mouth (as much as I want it too), how are you supposed to eat it?
    Then you let us know a great way to taste all those mouthwatering layers in one bite! I am forever in your debt.
