Golden Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

I'm going to share with you one of my dirty little secrets. I hate to admit it, but it has to be done - I am kind of obsessed with golden oreos. There I said it! I don't know why, but they are basically like crack to me. Granted, I haven't ever smoked crack so I don't really know that whole crack addiction thing, but  I understand it is one hell of a drug, so I can relate these oreos are too!  When I buy them I usually pick up some of the regular oreos so the people in my house will stay out of my sweet sweet golden babies, sometimes it works. Other times I find myself yelling at someone.

 I decided to be a sweetheart and bake my  boys some cookies and cream cupcakes, as I was reaching for the regular ones I spotted the vanilla ones and it hit me, why can't I just make them with the vanilla oreos, wouldn't they be twice as yummy? Oh I think so! And they were. I'm really happy with how they turned out. Basically I just took my vanilla bean cupcake recipe, added one cup of crushed oreos and baked. Once they cooled I whipped up a cream cheese frosting, again added some crushed oreos, I finished them off with half an oreo top. You all should be proud of me, instead of eating the cream inside I put it inside of my frosting! Talk about smart thinking! It was pretty simple, and even more like crack than the cookies themself. So do yourself a favor and make some of these today!!!
