Mud Pie Oreo Stuffed Brownie Cupcakes

Pin It

I will be honest.  I had been begging for a reason to make these Mud Pie Oreo Stuffed Brownie Cupcakes again.  I originally came up with this recipe towards the end of the summer, & I had kind of been hanging onto it... until today. ;)

I decided to jump back into the The Leftovers Club this month and was paired with the lovely Shaina from Take A Bite Out of Boca.  (By the way, she sent me an amazing homemade granola- be sure to pop on over to her blog in a bit to get the recipe!)
I knew this was the perfect excuse to whip up a batch of these brownie cupcakes again!

These stuffed brownie cupcakes are decadent and yummy and not so New Year's resolution-friendly. 
(Sorry! Sort of... ;)).

All in moderation is my motto.  Make a batch- keep a few (or all!) or share with neighbors & co-workers. 
They will love you and curse you all at the same time. 
Trust me. ;)
Mud Pie Oreo Stuffed Brownie Cupcakes
by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20-22 minutes
Ingredients (15 cupcakes)
  • 1 box of your favorite fudge or dark chocolate brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 tbsp Kahlua or strongly brewed coffee (or 1 tbsp of each)
  • 2/3 cup cookie butter or Biscoff
  • 1/2 cup pretzels, crushed
  • 32 Oreo cookies (Double Stuff or regular- whichever is your preference)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line 16 muffin pan cups with muffin liners. Set aside.
In large bowl, mix together the brownie batter, water, eggs, canola oil, and Kahlua or coffee until well combined. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together the cookie butter and crushed pretzels. (I crushed the pretzels by placing them in a resealable bag and taking a meat mallet to them. You could also use a rolling pin.)
Make sandwiches using 2 Oreo cookies and about a tbsp of the cookie butter/pretzel mixture. Continue this until you have 16 Oreo cookie sandwiches.

Drop a tbsp of brownie batter into each lined muffin cup. Then press in an Oreo/cookie butter/pretzel sandwich on top of the batter in each muffin cup. Cover the Oreo sandwiches with about 2 more tbsp of brownie batter.

Bake at 350 for about 20-22 minutes or until the centers are set.
Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
