Chocolate Cupcakes:

1 package devil's food cake mix

1 5.9 oz package instant chocoalte pudding mix

1 cup sour cream

1 cup vegetable oil

4 large eggs

1/2 cup warm water

2 sticks of butter, at room temperature

1 cup shortening

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

2 lbs powdered sugar

4-6 tablespoons cold milk

8 crushed Oro Cookies, crushed.


For Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pans with baking cups. Place an Oreo cookie inside each liner (if desired). In a large bowl, sift together the cake and pudding mixes. Mix in sour cream, oil, beaten eggs, and water until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into prepared cupcake pans.

For icing: Cream the butter and shortening in a bowl with a mixer. Add the salt and vanilla extract; combine well. Begin sifting in the powdered sugar in three or four parts, mixing thoroughly after each addition. After all the sugar has been added and mixed in, begin adding the milk slowly, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is achieved. Fold in crushed Oreo cookies. Frost cooled cupcakes.

Makes about 30 cupcakes.
