For the cupcakes

  • 3.5 oz. (100g) oreo cookies
  • 2/3 cup (150g) butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 tbsp. milk

For the topping

  • 1 3/4 cups (225g) confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/4 cup (35g) cocoa powder
  • 14 oz. (400g) cream cheese
  • 2.8 oz. (80g) nougat

For the coating

  • 7 oz. (200g) dark chocolate coating
  • 2 tbsp. chocolate sprinkles


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners and set aside.
  2. Crush the oreos (works best with freezer bag and arolling pin) and set aside. In a large bowl mix the butter with sugar, salt and vanilla extract on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one by one and mix well after each addition. Mix the flour with baking powder and add together with the milk to the bowl and mix until just combined. Add the crushed oreos and fold in. Fill the batter into the paper liners and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Take out of the oven and let cool down completely on a wire rack.
  3. Sift the confectioner’s sugar and cocoa into a bowl, add cream cheese and mix well. Warm the nougat a bit, so it is softer and easy to mix in (it should be soft, not liquid). Mix into the cream cheese mixture until well combined. Fill into a piping bag with a big round tip and pipe a big swirl on each cupcake. Place the cupcakes in the fridge for at least 5 hours or over night.
  4. Chop the chocolate coating and melt in a bowl over a pot with simmering water. Take off the heat when melted and let cool down again for about 30 minutes – stir from time to time. The melted chocolate should be still liquid but only slighly warm. Take the cupcakes out of the fridge and coat with the chocolate. Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles (optional) and let dry before serving.


  • Enjoy baking!
