Stuffed Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

It’s Sunday.  I like to make something fun for the day before Monday – that back to reality day.  Today I saw a recipe for Stuffed Cookies and Cream Cupcakes.  It called for Oreo’s and refrigerated chocolate chip dough.  Knowing me, there is no way I will use store bought Oreo’s or refrigerated chocolate chip dough.  I ended up making both for this recipe.  That just makes it all the more fun, don’t you think?!  These cupcakes were Simple and Delicious.  Here goes;
