Mini-Oreo Surprise Cupcakes

Have you seen this new Oreo?
There's been some food buzz out there and yes, all the rumors are true.  

Nabisco has confirmed to perhaps the most indulgent Oreo in existence — the Triple Double Oreo, coming this summer.  

I can't remember not twisting an Oreo open and eating it, filling first when I was a kid.  Now my grands love these little guys....I call 'em grand treats.  The Triple Double will be bigger, but I can't imagine better than the perfect little bite-size, Mini-Oreo...still a splurge!

Mini-Oreo Surprise Cupcakes 
  • 1 pkg. cake mix

  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 48 Mini OREO chocolate sandwich cookie
