Yesterday, after perusing Pinterest and looking at the rainy weather outside I thought it was the perfect day for some baking fun and the recipe I found knocked my socks off and made my belly rumble. The challenge would be Oreo Crunch Cupcakes that I found of Pinterest via A Little Inspiration Blog .(Such a cute blog by the way!) Where you can find the simple recipe.
The recipe didn't seem too difficult and to give it a Jeans and Tees and Travel and Cakes twist I used Mint and Blonde Oreos instead of Classic Black and White. The result was amazing and with 24 delicious cupcakes staring me in the face while I was all by myself in my apartment, I knew I had a problem on my hands. If I kept all of these cupcakes in my apartment I would indeed eat all of them, so I divided them up and dropped them off to various family members to make their rainy day a little better.
Here is how my Oreo Crunch Cupcakes turned out.
