Oreo Bottom Cupcakes

I have three words for you: Oreo bottom cupcakes! If you’re a cookie, or cupcake, fan – these are amazing. They are super-tasty and perfect for parties. Whether you’re celebrating your child’s birthday, New Year’s Eve, Christmas or any other special day, nothing says “party treat” like this sweet dessert.

Dessert Sweets

When my son tuned seven I set up a sundae bar in the dining room for his birthday party. Had I thought of cupcake decorating, I would have done that instead (ice cream + hot August weather + 20 7-year-old boys = a melty mess). So, if you’ve got a party to plan, are looking for a fun (but, not so-healthy) playdate idea or just want to treat your child to something extra-extra-special, start with one of these cookie bottom cupcakes. Let your child add an artistic touch with fun frosting colors and a rainbow of sprinkles or candy decors!

To make the cupcakes:

It’s so, so, so simple. I’m not the world’s best baker (by far), and even I had no problem making these. If you have a favorite from-scratch recipe, go for it. I used a boxed white cake mix.
Kids' Treats

After you mix the cake batter, place an Oreo at the bottom of each cupcake liner. Pour the batter on top and bake. That’s it! It is that simple. We used birthday cake Oreos, but you can use the plain ones or get creative with special edition versions.

After the cupcakes have cooled:

Set them out on a table. Cover the table with an easily-washable cloth. This makes it easy to clean up any spills or stray frosting.

Give your party guests a choice of frosting and toppings. Let the kiddos come up with their own colorful creations or give them a theme, such as:
Dessert Party

Famous artists- We made Monet and Picasso cupcakes

Rainbow – Try mixing the primary colors of frosting
(red, blue and yellow) into new hues.

S’mores – Who doesn’t love a s’more? And when you add marshmallows and chocolate, it makes the cupcakes all the better.

And, that’s it! Now your child’s party guests (or the grown-ups who you’ve invited) have creatively designed Oreo bottom cupcakes.
