Mint! Chocolate! Combined?!? Yes Please! That’s how excited I get about mint chocolate anything. Like seriously, whoever came up with the idea is a genius. I love you. It hurts me to say this but I am the only one in my household who likes mint and chocolate. My hubby claims he is allergic to chocolate. However, he loves German Chocolate Cake. I guess chocolate from Germany is allergen free? My daughter loves chocolate, my daughter likes mint candy, but as soon as I use these two words in the same sentence, her face distorts into a look of disgust. Then she claims she is allergic to mint while sucking on a peppermint candy. *Sigh*

All is not lost however. Thank goodness cupcakes can be made into smaller portions. I couldn’t imagine making and eating 12 cupcakes in one sitting. Well, yes I can but it just doesn’t seem too healthy. These Mint Oreo cupcakes for two (or one) are the perfect solution for me.

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grab 2 mint oreo cookies (I used the oreo thins so I used 4 of those) and remove the filling from the cookies and set the filling aside. Set half of the cookie halves aside and crush the other half of the cookies until they are tiny bity pieces, like this:

Set aside.

Then, combine them dry ingredients:

3 TBS flour, 2 TBS sugar, 1 TBS cocoa powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Your mixture should look like this:

Check out my mini spatula. Pretty cool, huh.

Next, combine 3 TBS milk, 1 TBS vegetable oil, and 1/4 tsp vanilla extract. Then add that to your dry mixture. It should look like this:

Line a muffin tin, I use my 6 muffin tin tin, with 2 cupcake liners. Place an oreo cookie in the bottom of each cupcake liner. Divide the mixture between the two cupcake liners. Bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes, or until you stick a toothpick in it and it comes out clean. Let cupcakes cool completely on wire rack.

While your cupcakes are cooling, make that delicious cream cheese frosting. Combine 2 TBS softened cream cheese, 1 softened TBS butter. Stir until smooth and well combined. Then add 2 1/2 TBS powdered sugar and stir until combined. Then and the mint filling from your oreos.

Once your cupcakes are cooled, frost them and sprinkle with the crushed oreos. Then, enjoy and share with no one.
