Cupcake Inception

We've played around with making Cookie Inceptions a bit, but I never really wrote it up.

Today, Mira and I made Cupcake Inceptions. And they turned out great.

The idea was to bake an Oreo cookie inside a cupcake. The first thing to ensure is that the Oreo would fit inside the cupcake wrapper/tin. They fit perfect.

We decided to use Oreo Heads or Tails, which have a chocolate side and a vanilla side.

Mira mixed up the cake mix. We went with chocolate cake for the cupcakes. A vanilla mix would have shown off the Oreo better, but we thought the chocolate would taste better.

We poured a little cake mix into the cupcake wrapper to give it a good cake base.

Then the Oreo were Incepted!

Cake mix then covered the Oreos to a little over 2/3 full. We like using a measuring cup to pour our cupcakes into wrappers.

A little over 20 minutes in the oven and out come the Cupcake Inceptions!

The cupcake holds together well and you can't see the Oreo from the outside.

Inside, you can see the Oreo. The cake mix softens the cookie, but not too much. There's still a little crunch to the Oreo, but not enough to slow us down from wolfing down the cupcake.

The experiment was a success. Give it a try.
