  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2
    Make cake batter as directed on box, stirring food color into batter to desired shade of green. Bake cupcakes as directed. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, mix frosting and peppermint extract. Spoon about 1 cup frosting into decorating bag fitted with 1/8- to 1/4-inch tip. Insert tip into center of 1 cupcake, about halfway down. Gently squeeze decorating bag, pulling upward until cupcake swells slightly and filling comes to top. Repeat with remaining cupcakes.
  • 4
    Spoon remaining frosting into same bag; generously pipe frosting in circular motion on top of each cupcake, leaving 1/4-inch border around edge. Top with Oreo™ pieces.

Expert Tips

  • Add a white sprinkle border around the frosted edges, if desired.
  • Oreo Thins™ chocolate mint crème sandwich cookies can be found in the grocery aisle next to the other varieties of Oreo™ cookies. They have less filling, which makes them easier to cut into quarters.
