Oreo Owl Cupcakes take regular cupcakes up a notch by making them festive and adorable for the Halloween season - they are a hit at every party!Oreo Owl Cupcakes are absolutely darling! My mother-in-law made these cupcakes for a Halloween carnival this past weekend and I knew I had to share them! Aren’t they so cute?! Even better- they’re easy to make and you might even have all the ingredients on hand right now.

 

 Oreo Owl Cupcakes
  • chocolate cupcakes {make according to package instructions}
  • chocolate frosting {we used a ganache- recipe below}
  • Oreo cookies
  • M&M’s
  • Candy Corn 
Chocolate Ganache
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  1. Heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Once it’s about to boil, turn the heat down to medium-low and add in the chocolate chips. Allow chips to heat for about a minute, then begin stirring gently, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Allow to cool slightly before frosting cupcakes. If ganache hardens before you’re ready, simply return to low heat and stir again.
  2. Separate the two halves of the Oreo cookies and lay out on a counter top. The 2 parts divide easily, but you can use a knife if you’d like. You’re only going to use the halves with the frosting, but save the plain halves to use for a chocolate cookie pie crust in another dessert!
  3. Place a brown M&M on each cookie, pressing in gently so they stick.
  4. Frost the cupcakes, leaving a pointy “tuft” of frosting on the top, middle of the cupcake for the owl’s feathers.
  5. Gently press 2 Oreo halves onto the top of the cupcake. Add in a candy corn, pointy end facing down as the beak. That’s it! Now just take to friends or family and prepare to “wow” everyone with your creativity. 😉
