Double Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes

My little brother had a soccer game I planned on attending, but had to skip out of it last minute, so I decided to make up for it, by making him cupcakes! I knew he liked chocolate, A LOT of chocolate, so I made a double chocolate cupcake, with oreoes, his favourite. I wouldn't have thought of this if I had a choice, but whatever he likes!
CAUTION: this is a VERY sweet recipe, but I've gotten a good response to this :)
Double Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes
What You'll Need:
1. Duncan Hines Cake Mix (Chocolate)
2. Cupcake liners
3. Milk
4. Oreos
5. Butter
6. 12-tin cupcake pan
7. 1 pie pan (opt)
8. Chocolate Frosting

Let's Begin!
1. Line your pan and grease your pie pan, and then preheat your oven to 350!
2. Prepare your cake mix according to the directions, and substitute the water with milk. I substituted a little of the oil with butter. That's optional! :)
3. When you're done preparing your cake mix, quarter the oreos. :) I added too much into the batter, but the amount you want is entirely up to you!
4. I ended up quartering about a third of the oreos and mixing them into my batter.

5. Then spoon in the batter up to about a third of the way up the cupcake tins. (Ice cream scoop portions!)
6. Bake! for 350. Then remove from the oven and let it cool for 40-50min. The baking time should be shorter and rotate the pan for the last 5 minutes of baking. After 20 minutes in the oven pass, check every few minutes or so! :)
7. While they're cooling, mix the frosting with another third of the oreos. While you're at it, take the rest of the oreos and crumble them for a secret surprise in the cupcakes later.

8. Is it cool? Great! Shave off the tops of these suckers now! But keep the tops, :) They're still good to munch on!
9. Take a teaspoon and carefully spoon out a little bit of the cupcake to make room for MORE OREO!
10. Spoon in the crumbled oreos into the nice little space you just made and then seal it off with frosting!

11. Let the frosting set for about 15 minutes and enjoy!
-----EXCESS BATTER GOES INTO THE PIE PAN TO BAKE AND WHATEVER ELSE YOU DO IS UP TO YOU! I ended up making one big version of this preceding recipe. :)
