Oreo Cookies n’ Cream Buttercream Frosting

I am pretty darn excited about this Oreo Cookies n’ Cream Buttercream Frosting. What could be better than crushed up cookies in frosting?

Not much, my friends.

Happy Tuesday, by the way. By now everyone in Alberta has begrudgingly returned to work after our beautiful long weekend. Here in Edmonton we had the nicest May long weekend weather-wise that I can ever remember.

No snow. No sleet. I got a slight sunburn.


So. Very. Weird.

Oreo Cookies n' Cream Buttercream Frosting


May Long in Alberta is not supposed to be nice weather. We usually get hit with a blanket of heavy wet snowing while camping, or sleet or pouring rain. As hardy Canadians we head out to the lake/campsite/bush anyway, because really, snow never stops us from anything, now does it?

I however, stayed at home. Baked. Went out Saturday night with my friend Kandice for her birthday. Did yard work and planted my garden in the SUN.

It was glorious.

If you noticed, there were two words in the last few sentences. Birthday and baked. Oh, you just know something happened in my kitchen over the weekend!

OREO concoctions, that’s what happened.

Let’s start with my Cookies n’ Cream Oreo Buttercream Frosting. Why haven’t I thought of this before??!! Oreo’s are the perfect pairing with my Best Buttercream Icing Ever recipe! If you thought my original icing was good enough to eat off the spoon, then this  Cookies n’ Cream Buttercream Icing will blow your mind even more.

You can add as many cookies as you want, the filling in them makes the icing even creamier! I used a cup but play around with the amount of cookies and make it to your liking,

Hmm.  Cookies n’ Cream Buttercream frosting must mean that there is a cake somewhere to go along with it…..

Stay tuned for the cake recipe tomorrow!

Love you more than Oreo’s,

    I have made this cake and frosting several times. So delicious! I made them as cupcakes also and it worked with a little less cooking time. However, I would like to try filling those oreo cake cupcakes with this buttercream frosting as a filling. I am wondering if that will work or if I will need to alter the recipe to make a filling?

      Icing, powdered and confectioners sugar are all the same thing! Coffee cream is a high fat cream.

      @Amanda Vazquez No, a high fat cream. Half and Half or one that is actually called Coffee Cream.
