    These cupcakes are great. I used birthday Oreos and I added extra. I also used cream cheese frosting and folded in crushed Oreos instead of sprinkling on top. I will be making these again.

    I'd prepared these cupcakes and I thank you, Mary Wiebe, for sharing this recipe! I found that when I prepared this recipe that the yield made 28! delowenstein

    The cookies in these truly send plain white cake over the top. Plus it helps stretch these downsized cake mixes to actually make 24 cupcakes per box.

    These cupcakes are good, but you really couldn't taste the chocolate sandwich cookies in the cake as you would by themselves. Cookies were kind of soggy inside. Kids like them though.

    Grown kids and grandchildren loves this recipe. I loved that it was easy! I did make my own frosting though.
