For the Cupcakes:

  • 1 3/4 cups 347g granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup 63g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups 310g all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup 119 ml vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup 237 ml hot water
  • 1 cup 237 ml buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon 15 ml vanilla extract
  • 24 Oreos any flavor

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 7 ounce jar marshmallow fluff
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 10 Oreos chopped
  • Mini Oreos or additional Oreos, for garnish optional

Instructions

Make the Cupcakes:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare cupcake pans with liners. Place an Oreo in the bottom of each cupcake liner.
  • Whisk together sugar, cocoa, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk oil, eggs, water, buttermilk, and vanilla in a large measuring cup or bowl.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Batter will be thin.
  • Pour into prepared pans and bake about 13-16 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Cool completely before frosting.

Make the Frosting:

  • Beat the butter, shortening and fluff together in a large bowl until smooth.
  • Beat in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Mix in salt and vanilla and 1 tablespoon of cream, adding more slowly to get your desired texture. Stir in the chopped Oreos.
  • Frost as desired. Top with mini Oreos for garnish!
