Cookies & Scream Cupcakes

With Halloween coming, I feel like it gives me license to play around in the kitchen more. I don't know why...maybe it's just a great excuse to play around in the kitchen more! Maybe it's because I have a half marathon coming up and i'm tapering (cutting back on mileage) for the next week and I have a whole lotta extra energy to burn up. Maybe it's because I love to eat sweets and treats. Whatever the reason...it's the reason I made these. Cookies and Scream Cupcakes:


What makes these so Halloweeny is using the Oreos with orange filling! I have had this recipe on my to-bake list for a while and when I saw the orange Oreos at Target...I had to buy some. The recipe comes from Annie's Eats, a great food blog. And the fun part? There is a surprise Oreo at the bottom!


Did you see it? The orange Oreo at the bottom? Awesome!!


My kids were excited to see it there. I will be honest with you, I felt like the cake part was very dense. Almost too dense. I don't know if my baking powder wasn't acting right or the Oreos made the batter dense or what happened. They were not light and fluffy. But they tasted pretty good!


What goodies are you baking up this fall? Do you make any fun treats for Halloween? I'd love to hear about it!! Thanks for stopping by today, friends...
