Oreo frosting, in my mind, has to be made with cream cheese. As I mentioned when I made my homemade Oreo cookies, I love Oreo cheesecake and I thought that I could, to some degree, replicate the feel of a good Oreo cheesecake in the frosting for my Oreo cupcake. Oreo cheesecake frosting was created!
I started with a basic cream cheese frosting and mixed in Oreos and a splash of vanilla extract.
The Oreo cheesecake frosting is perfect on Oreo cupcakes, but it would also be great on any chocolate or vanilla cupcake. Even a box mix cupcake would be kicked up many notches if you topped it with homemade Oreo cheesecake frosting.
