Pick a Pin Tuesday : Oreo Caramel cupcakes! : Also a Recipe

I love Oreos. I really do. I hide in the pantry to munch them so I don’t have to share. My kids don’t know what they taste like, cause they are MINE. I even make milkshakes with them. Then I saw this pin.

It didn’t have a recipe linked, but you can sort of figure it out yourself. I’ll share how I made it. :J

You will Need:

Sasko Chocolate Bake Muffin MixNestle Caramel Treat Oreo Original Cookies

  • 1 packet Sasko Chocolate Bake Muffin Mix. The mix calls for:
    • 2 eggs,
    • 200ml milk,
    • 200ml oil}
  • 1 small tin of Caramel Treat
  • 2 x boxes of original Oreo cookies
  • 2 x 12 hole Muffin tins {I used the large muffin ones. Not Giant like M&B, but big}
  • Cupcake liner papers

Method:

Heat Oven to 180ºC. Place cupcake wrappers in baking tin. Prepare muffin mix as per packet instructions. Spread caramel treat over an oreo cookie {Don’t eat it }. Place another cookie on top making a sandwich. Spread some more caramel on the top cookie. And place in a wrapper in the prepared tin. {You get 16 muffins using 2 packs of oreo cookies; and you will have some choc muffin mix left over for a few plain muffins} Once all the cookies are used, carefully spoon choc muffin mix over the caramel-cookie sandwich. Don’t fill too much, as long as the top is covered. The batter will gradually run down around the cookies enveloping them in chocolate goodness.

Bake at 180ºC for 20-25 mins or until a cake tester comes out clean and the top is springy.  Cool on wire rack and enjoy!

Here’s the only pic I took of mine. It was a hectic Friday at work, finally sat down for a cuppa and a muffin.

Handy hubby cut the bamboo skewers down to size.

Sugar coating the soaked skewers

You really need to make sure the skewers are properly soaked, generously sugra coated and dry-dry-dry when placing in the syrup. { learn from my fail } I let the sugared skewers dry in a glass of wheat.
