The Oreo biscuit is almost as old as the United States, having first been produced in 1912. Now America’s most popular biscuit, it never ceases to amaze me the number of oh-so-delicious recipes there are which include Oreos in the ingredients. It also doesn’t help to have to write about them without wanting to go out and buy a packet, and then devour the lot! I can’t help thinking that these Oreo cupcakes could be the perfect solution to a continuing problem. Now you can eat a bit of cupcake while you are dunking your Oreo in your tea. In the past we have shown you images of edible delights, but often we haven’t gone to the lengths of telling you the key ingredients. Yes, they say you eat with your eyes, but it would be nice for your stomach to actually know what it was dealing with!
