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….
