Oreo Nutella Brownie Cupcakes. So good, they should be Illegal.

A friend of mine said these cupcakes should be Illegal.  I made them last minute to take to a belated birthday dinner for a small group of people.  I put them on a blue plate since blue and brown are one of my favorite color combos, it reminds me of the Buster Brown shoe logo, kinda old fashioned.  My first bite in I waited for an over abundance of sugar, but was quickly excited that the brownie was just the right amount of sweet and the oreo balanced it out to perfection.

I realized these cupcakes were dangerous and luscious and I secretly hoped that everyone wouldn’t eat them up so I could have them all.  They did though….


Ingredients for Oreo Nutella Brownie Cupcakes:

  • 1/4 stick butter
  • 1 – cup sugar
  • 3 – eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 – 13 ounce jar of Nutella
  • 1 – cup flour
  • 16 – oreo cookies


Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
In a mixer add butter and sugar and mix till creamy for about 5 minutes.

Add in eggs and vanilla, and mix till frothy.  About 4 minutes.

Add in flour and mix till smooth.  Now to start filling the cups.  Add one tablespoon of brownie mixture to the bottom of each cupcake liner.

Top oreo cookie with another tablespoon of brownie mixture.  Push batter to the edge of cup so it could encase oreo cookie completely.

    I made them for a birthday party of one of my relatives and everyone there loved them. What is better than connecting two of the best things in the world: Oreos and Nutella? 🙂
    I actually don’t eat much chocolate cakes, cupcakes and stuff but those were amazing! As you said, the Oreo balanced the taste. I don’t actually know are Oreo cookies sweet because we don’t have Oreos here so I used some alternatives but those weren’t really sweet, kind of bitter actually. So it really made the cupcakes better. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    Hi there
    These look and sound extra yummy
    Could someone please help me out with the amount of butter needed? How many grams is a quarter stick? Would love to bake these on the weekend

    Way too yummy! I just made these for a bake sale today, and they were so good I ended up having to make another batch for my family. For those of us in Ireland and the UK, here are some conversions: 1/4 stick butter is equal to about 28 grams, use a 400g jar of Nutella (just leave a bit in the jar as 13 ounces is equal to 368.6 grams), and use vanilla essence, not vanilla extract.
