Spring is in full swing, and spring always makes me think of gardening and then gardening makes me think of dirt… Which then makes me think of dirt cake. This time though I wanted to try and turn it into a cupcake, but a cupcake with an Oreo on the bottom! This is a chocolate lovers dream. Honestly it’s rare that my family requests I don’t give away my desserts, but this time they wouldn’t let any leave the house. For the full video click here.
Chocolate Dirt Cupcakes:
- One boxed chocolate cake mix.
- Cocoa powder if not thick enough.
- Oreos for the bottom.
- Oreos for top (about one row).
- Gummy worms (sour will work too if you want).
Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing:
- 8 oz softened cream cheese
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp milk
Pre-heat over to 350F. Mix chocolate box mix as usual, add cocoa powder if not thick enough for you. Put an Oreo in the bottom of each cupcake liner then fill with batter. Bake for about fourteen minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool.
In a stand mixer beat the cream cheese and butter, then add vanilla. Once fully combined add in cocoa powder and fully mix. Gradually add in powder sugar half cup at a time and scape the sides as needed. Add milk to thin out. Crush Oreos and then put in bowl. Once the cupcake are fully cooled gently put the icing all over them then into crushed Oreos and top with a gummy worm. Now enjoy!
