Chocolate Oreo Bonbon Cupcakes

It's a bonbon in a cupcake. For reals, people. For reals.



  • 1 package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package Oreos
Ganache (optional):
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 oz. dark chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  1. Stir the cream cheese until smooth, add the Oreos and continue stirring until smooth. 
  2. Using a cookie scoop, place the balls on a lined cookie sheet and chill.
  3. Take the balls from the fridge, smooth them (by rolling them with your hands) and chill again.
  4. After the bonbons are chilled, preheat oven to 350. Line 18 places in a cupcake pan.
  5. Sift the remaining dry ingredients for the cupcake. Add the egg, buttermilk, and vanilla.
  6. Split the batter between the prepared cupcake liners. Place the bonbon in the center.
  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cooked through.
  8. While it's cooling, melt the unsalted butter, vegetable oil, and water for the ganache.
  9. When the cupcakes are cooled, pour the ganache on top. Drizzle white chocolate on top if you want. 
  10. Allow the ganache to set. Enjoy!

See the darker part of the cupcake? That's the bonbon.
